#1299: Mr. Noodles Noodles In A Cup Spicy Chicken Simulated Flavour

Here’s one my wife got for me on my birthday trip to Canada! Thanks, baby! Spicy chicken. Let’s check it out.

The cup.

The side panel from the cardboard outer (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself.

Detail from the lid (click image to enlarge). To prepare, empty sachet into cup and fill to 1/2 inch from the top with boiling water. Steep for 3 minutes, stir, and enjoy.

The noodle block.

The soup base sachet.

Vegetables as well as seasoning in one sachet.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added chicken, carrot, peas, sweet onion I has all sauteed with a little El Mexicano Adobo Seasoning and a sprinkle of colby jack cheese. The noodles are so strange; they smell like tortillas. I don’t understand why, but that’s what I get from them. They’re not the greatest in the world either and never seem to be completely prepared to me. The broth in this one wasn’t spicy, but it did seem to have a bit more flavor than the others in this line I’ve tried. 1.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 059491002550.

Don’t mess with Canada – they’ve got their facts straight.

#1169 Mr. Noodles Noodles In A Cup Beef Simulated Flavour

Here’s another from my Canadian birthday trip! Thanks again, Kit! This one’s for my son Andy (check out his blog at www.andyslegostuff.com). Usually he goes for the chicken varieties, but beef is what he’s getting today! Let’s check it out!

Here’s detail from the cardboard outer (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat-free but check for yourself.

Here’s the cup itself.

The seasoning sachet.

Vegetables and seasoning inside.

Andy’s a fan of noodles, but never likes broth. Also, any mention of spiciness has him running as well. Usually I get a little resistance when mentioning adding lots of veggies and meat, but he was open to it this time. Had a nice thunderstorm roll through after this and hung out on the balcony watching for flashes and listening for rumbles…

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added peas, carrots and beef. The noodles were pretty sad – very mushy and had a weird flavor. The broth is lackluster, although has a nice color to it. The veggies are only so-so. 1.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 059491002352.

#1164: Mr. Noodles Bowl Chicken Simulated Flavour Noodles In A Bowl

Another from my trip to Canada for my birthday – thanks, Kit! A chicken bowl – let’s check it out!

From the bottom of the cardboard outer (click image to enlarge). From the ingredients on the lid, this looks to be meat-free.

Detail from the removeable lid (click image to enlarge).

The noodle block.

Powder soup base sachet.

Chicken – simulated!

The vegetable sachet.

Peas and corn and carrot and other stuff.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added baked chicken, peas, carrots, Walla Walla sweet onion, broccoli, bell pepper, and hard boiled egg. The noodles are a bit opn the weak side; Downright mushy. The broth has very little flavor; I see what they’re trying to get at as a chicken-like flavor, but it’s just not quite right. The veggies did well however – decent hydration and quality. 2.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 059491009030.

For some reason, whenever I think about Canada, I think about when I watched TV as a kid. The Canadian shows were different; living so near Canada made it so I got to watch both US and Canadian TV. Well, this video has nothing to do with that except these are all 80’s sci-fi show intros. Check ’em out!

#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.

Here’s a vid of my son singing while the dogs hope that a piece of candy might fall to the floor. That’s a favorite activity of pugs if you’re not familiar with them.

#1049: Mr Noodles Bowl Beef Simulated Flavour

Yep – another one from Canada. I really like how it says ‘simulated flavor.’ It’s a beef simulator! Let’s try it.

From the bottom of the cardboard outer (click image to enlarge). The ingredients are on the lid and no meat or egg is mentioned. Contains wheat.

The noodle block.

Powder seasoning.

Light in color.

Vegetable packet.

Looks like some corn, carrot, cabbage, peas and green onion.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added beef (non-simulated) sauteed in Worcestershire sauce, broccoli, bell pepper and sweet onions. Topped the beef with Dua Belibis Chilli sauce and everything with a little Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake. The noodles are just plain weird; they are as crumbly in texture as possible but not really spongy. They don’t suck up the flavor of the broth much. The broth though isn’t very flavorful so that could be part of the issue. The corn was the only thing I found pleasant, but not overly so. Bland stuff. 2.0 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 059491009047.

There seem to be a lot of videos on YouTube with people doing strange things with Mr. Noodles.

#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.

Vegetables!

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.

#835: Mr. Noodles Shrimp Simulated Flavour Instant Noodles

All good things… Well, these weren’t all that good but they were a lot of fun! Thanks go to Mark K. and Erika L. for getting these to me! They sent a slew of different flavors of Mr. Noodles and they were really my first foray into the world of Canadian instant noodles! Now it is time to give the last pack a try. Here we go!

Back of the package (click image to enlarge). Something interesting – all the others were imported by Anderson Watts Ltd. of Burnaby B.C. and not Vancouver, B.C.

The noodle block. They’re so crisp and uniform!

The seasoning packet.

The seasoning awaits becoming broth.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added a couple scrambled eggs, some Huy Fong Sriracha chili sauce and some Krazy Mixed Up Salt. The noodles are funky; they are almost doughy! Weird. The broth has a bit of flavor but not a lot and not a shrimp flavor. I dunno – it’s so fascinating and so meh. 2.5 out of 5.0 stars – fills the belly. UPC bar code 059491000303 .

Mr. UU (double u) – right on

This is a huge hit in Korea right now – Psy – Gangnam Style

#800: Mr. Noodles Instant Noodles Chicken Simulated Flavour

2012_7_8_800_001

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 .
