#2242: Great Value Beef Style Noodles With Vegetables

Here’s one my sister brought me back from Canada – thanks again! Ah, Walmart. They’re probably the biggest store around and there are lots of them. What’s funny is that these are made in the United States and sold in Canada – but you can’t find them at Walmart store in the United States. Let’s check out the elusive Walmart Great Value cup noodle!

#2016: Great Value Chicken Style Noodles With Vegetables

Another one my sister picked up for me in Canada – thanks again! Today, my boy Andy’s feeling a little under the weather, so I thought some Canadian chicken noodles would do him good. Well, I should say my sister sourced them in Canada; the package says they are a product of the United States. I really wonder who private labels these for Walmart. I’m sure someone will let me know! Anyways, let’s see what’s up with this cup.

Some vegetables from the cup – looks like spring onion, corn and carrot.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added kamaboko and processed cheese. The noodles are a little more hearty – thick and chewy. They hydrated well and there’s a decent quantity. The broth has flavor! Not bland! What is also nice is that it tastes liike chicken! The supplied vegetables hydrated well enough. I think I’m seeing a theme here – Canada should import it’s instant noodles from the United States. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 628915231724.

The noodles are superb – lot of ’em and they have a very ‘comfort food’ consistency. The broth is nice too – has a good deep spiciness much like a Mexican food flavor with a nice shrimp taste to it. The extra veggies and shrimp that came with it are nice too – hydrated well and of good quality. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 041789003035.
