#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.

Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but look for yourself. To prepare, add boiling water to fill line and let steep covered for 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

Detail of the lid (click to enlarge).

The noodle block.

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.

#1918: iMee Instant Noodles Chicken Flavour

Here’s another one that was sent to me by James B. from The Netherlands – thanks! So this one is made in Thailand for the Dutch market. Nothing says compassion like chicken. I think. Well, chicken is kind of that universal flavor that is okay for everyone but Vegans (at least if it has chicken in it). Let’s check it out!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodles to a bowl. Add 320ml boiling water and cover for 4 minutes. Add in seasonings. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

A dual sachet: seasoning base on the left and chilli powder on the right.

An oil sachet.

Has kind of a garlic scent to it.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added hard boiled egg and chilli flake. The noodles were stalwart and weren’t super soft or engorged – something chicken instants usually are which was refreshing. The broth had a nice and salty chicken taste with a tinge of chilli powder spiciness (almost undetectable) and the oil gave it a little more gumption. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8858829601098.

#1243: Nissin Demae Rice Vermicelli Chicken Flavour Instant Rice Vermicelli With Soup Base

Here’s one my wife got me earlier this year on my birthday trip to Canada! Thanks, Kit! Today I’ll be using the very last of the amazingly succulent and perfect turkey Kit made this Thanksgiving – trust me – it was absolutely perfect. That’s why it’s chicken flavored noodles today; I don’t think it’d be very logical to add it to shrimp or beef flavored. Maybe duck, but I don’t believe there’s any duck flavored in my stash. So the noodles were bought in Canada, distributed in Hong Kong and a product of Thailand – got all that? Let’s check it out!

The back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, put the noodles and contents of sachets in a bowl. Add 400ml boiling water, cover for  3 minutes, give a stir and it’s done.

The rice noodle block.

Seasoning powder sachet.

A light powder.

Flavored oil sachet.

Has a slightly garlicky scent.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added hard boiled egg and Added turkey baked in the over stuffed with apples and onions with fresh rosemary, garlic and butter under the skin and basted regularly during the time in the oven. The noodles were the kind of rice noodles I dislike; they’re extremely thin and wispy like cobwebs – not the ones you get from a spider but the ones that you’d get at a Halloween store. The broth however is actually quite nice with a good chicken flavor. This would’ve been way better with rice stick. 1.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 4897878200023.

Pirikara? That sounds interesting!

#1127: Campbell’s Hearty Noodles Chicken Flavour

Here’s another one from T&T Supermarket up in Canada! To be honest, I was absolutely stoked to find this one; I’ve seen pics of the Campbell’s varieties in the past, but they’re not available in the United States as far as I know. Let’s check out this little chicken cup.

Here are the side panels (click image to enlarge). Contains chicken.

Here is the lid with instructions (click image to enlarge).

The noodle block.

Some bits of veggies and a nice chicken scent. This was at the bottom of the cup – no packets.


Finished (click image to enlarge). Added chicken lunch meat, broccoli, red bell pepper and Walla Walla sweet onion. The noodles are surprisingly chewy – almost overly so, with a crumble that’s a little funky. The broth is very nice though – nice chicken flavor, and the veggies hydrated well. 1.75 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 0632111767797.

#1104: Western Family Instant Noodles Chicken Flavour

Here’s yet another one picked up in Canada on my birthday! My wife took me up there (I’m legally blind so driving’s not the greatest idea for me). Thanks, Kitten! My son is a huge fan of chicken flavored noodle anything, so I figure he’ll like these.

The back of the package (click ijmage to enlarge). May contain traces of egg, fish/shellfish, nuts or sulfites.

Here’s the noodle block.

The soup base.

Has a chicken scent.


Here’s something my son drew in November of 2011 back when he was only 6. Lots of changes in his art since then, but I really like this one!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added a slice of cheese and a little kamaboko. The noodles were the standard Western Family pack fare – not bad but could use a little better in the quality; they have a slight rich film you end up with. The broth had a really nice taste though – very comfort foody and chicken flavored. Of all the Western Family ones I’ve tried thus far, this was the best! 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 062639297169.

#1084: Mr. Noodles Noodles In A Cup Chicken Simulated Flavour

Today’s Father’s Day and my son Andy is over. Thought we’d have some noodles and this is the one he picked. He usually sticks to chicken flavored ones. Let’s check it out!

Panel from the cardboard outer (click imago to enlarge). Looks to be vegetarian.

The noodle block.

The soup base.

Powder as well as veggies!

So we took pictures of eachother when we ate our noodles.

 Finished (click image to enlarge). Added a slice of cheese and some chicken lunch meat. Andy says these are delicious and he can’t resist it – so yummy! My thoughts on this cup are a little different. The noodles are sad and have almost zero backbone with a really odd crumble to them. The broth is near tasteless and the veg is kind of weird. Bottom line – he loves it, I don’t. 1.5 out of 5.0 stars. Happy Father’s Day! UPC bar code 059491002505.

#1002: Mr. Noodles Bowl Spicy Chicken Simulated Flavour

On my birthday, my wife took me up to Canada and I got 55 new varieties of instant to review – here’s one of them! I’ve reviewed Mr. Noodles before and found them to be marginal at best. Let’s see how the bowl version here goes!

Here’s what’s on the bottom of the cardboard outer (click image to enlarge).

Underneath the cardboard is the bowl and here’s the lid (click image to enlarge).

The noodle block.

The powder seasoning.

Has a spicy scent.


Some corn, some green stuff, maybe some carrot?

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added green bell pepper, green onion, broccoli baked chicken with Italian seasoning and Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning and some Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake. The noodles are a little melancholy – they don’t soak up the broth’s flavor and are crumbly. The broth’s flavor is kind of an oxymoron here as the broth is extremely bland; all I find is mainly a spicy taste which is more of a sting than heat. Veggies fared decently,. 2.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 059491009078.

This is one of the more bizarre self-made videos I’ve seen.

#875: Sunlee Artificial Chicken Flavour Rice Vermicelli

Here’s one from Thailand – Sunlee. Rice noodles eh… Alright, let’s give it a try.

A close up of the lid (click to enlarge).

A fork!

The rice noodle block.

Dry seasonings…

Lots of chicken flavor base.

Red pepper flakes.

Seasoned oil.

Looks like some seasoned oil.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some baked chicken and some Huy Fong Sriracha chili sauce. The noodles are extremely thin. This is one that using scissors to cut them is helpful. They’re not bad but not great. The broth has a nice chicken flavor. This definitely wasn’t Sunlee’s best. 2.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 76193401644 .

#869: Vina Acecook Good Bean Vermicelli Chicken Flavour

I’ve got to say, this is some of my favorite packaging. I really like the big drumstick in the picture and the old english exclaiming ‘good.’ I hope it’s good! I’d rather it be better than just good, but I think I’ll just wait and see.

The back of the package (click to enlarge).

The bean thread block.

The seasoning powder.

Salty and chinkenny.

The seasoned oil.

Smells good too.

The veggie packet!

Quite an ample supply of vegetable bits.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added hard boiled egg, baked chicken, Krazy Mixed Up Salt and Huy Fong Sriracha hot chili sauce. The noodles are, well, pretty good. They break easily when you purse your lips. The broth is good. Has a great chicken flavor. Only issue is that it has a kind of sting to it – wish I had a better word. Not like the bite of a spicy pepper, but different. The veggies were wonderous. All in all I think this was pretty ‘good.’ I think bean thread is growing on me. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 8934563328115 .

#800: Mr. Noodles Instant Noodles Chicken Simulated Flavour


Here it is – number 800! Gonna hit that four digits sooner or later. Thanks go to Mark K. and Erika L. for getting these to me! I had to decide on an appropriate variety for today’s big 800, so I though Canadian chicken (simulated flavor) instant noodles was fascinating enough to do the trick! So, here we go!

The back of the package (click image to enlarge).

The noodle block.

The single soup base packet.

It’s got a definitely funky chicken taste…

Andy had some Nongshim Bowl Noodle Beef and kamaboko! Check out his blog, Andy’s LEGO Stuff here!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added veggies, an egg, some Huy Fong Sriracha chili sauce and some Ajishima Kimchi furikake. Well, the noodles weren’t too bad this time – not all funky. The broth was better too – had a better taste to it. Then again, this is chicken flavor – hard one to make unpalatable! I honestly found this to be the best Mr. Noodles I’ve tried thus far! 3.0 out of 5.0 stars! UPC bar code 059491000501 .
