#737: Gấu Đỏ Tôm và Gà (Chicken & Shrimp Flavour)

Here’s another of the ones sent to me by Carter B. of Lancaster, PA – thanks again! He got this one whilst in Africa! Never seen this brand before here. Something interesting – see that little red band along the front? It comes off!

See? Weird huh? Haven’t seen anything like that before! Well, let’s give chicken and shrimp a try! By the way – Gấu Đỏ translates to Red Bear. Also, it looks like the beat is making noodles by pulling them! Awesome!

Here’s the back of the packaging (click image to enlarge).

Here’s the noodle block.

A dry packet.

Contests are powder and a little bit of veggies.

Seasoned oil!

I’m expecting a little spiciness.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added an egg, some chicken lunch meat, a little veggie mix we made, a little Krazy Mixed Up Salt and some Huy Fong Sriracha chili sauce. The Noodles were kind of funky – strange texture and not enjoyable. The broth was okay but was missing something. Not my fave – 2.5 ouit of 5.0 stars. Happy Mother’s Day to all!

So in addition to K-Pop and J-Pop, there’s V-Pop!

Oh man what the heck – these guys are Yankees fans?!

#637: Snapdragon Pan-Asian Cuisine Chinese Mushroom Rice Noodle Soup

Chinese mushroom cup? Let’s give it a go…

Here are the side panels (click image to enlarge). I like the stickers – I’m curious why they re-did thje directions – were they not so easy last time?

Seasoning powder and oil packet on left and a veggie packet on the right.

Ready for boiling water.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Well, here goes: the noodles were in a word, mushy. They had the right amount of steeping time too. I’m not detracting points though, because this was a nice kind of mushy; the kind you’d like to have with rice noodles in a cup – you can break em off with your lips. The broth is salty and has some hints of mushroom. Very mild and approaching bland, but not quite there. If you’re looking for something light and mushroomy, this is the ticket. As for the veggies, they weren’t prevalent. 2.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC barcode 815055010115 – get it here.
