Meet The Manufacturer: #2492: Nissin Smack Chili - Germany - The Ramen Rater - instant noodles

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!

#10: Smack Vegetable Beef Ramen Noodles



Smack: Vegetable Beef
Stars: * 1/2

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.

NO LONGER PRODUCED
