Many, many years ago, there was a company that made an instant noodle called Smack here in the United States. This is completely unrelated – although great to know the name still is around and in a new form! This one’s supposed to be spicy – let’s find out!

The noodle block.
The soup base sachet.
A dark shaded powder.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added Chinese sausage, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts and spring onion. The noodles are very nice – good standard gauge and chew. The broth has a nice spiciness to it and a kind of beef flavor. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 5997523346454.
Notes: Receiving the one and a half stars primarily because of its’ bold daring name, ‘Smack’ is still even in this form not my drug of choice. An American Union Made noodle through and through. Says it only takes three minutes, but the noodles were dense and very spiteful. The flavor was a standard, unoriginal vegetable beef which you’d find in a can of soup. Would only recommend this brand to those who would just use the noodle for frying with eggs, and still I don’t think eggs require that much punishment.
