Meet The Manufacturer: #1843: Forest Noodles Sunbaked Noodle With Sesame Oil Sauce

Today, we bid a fond farewell to another Meet The Manufacturer. Forest Noodles products all have one thing in common – they’re all dried in the sun. They also highlight nature which is pretty great as well. Let’s have a look at the last in this series, their sesame oil sauce variety with sunbaked noodles.

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, boil a pot of water with some salt. Add noodle block and cook for 5.5 – 6.5 minutes. Drain. Add in liquid sachet contents. Stir and enjoy!

Meet The Manufacturer: #1841: Forest Noodles Sunbaked Noodles With Spicy Sauce

Today, we’ve got a sunbaked noodle. Forest Noodles dried their noodles in the sun – which means no sun, no noodles. This variety is served cold – 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, boil a pot of water and add some salt. Add noodle block and cook 5.5-6.5 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water. Add in contents of sachets. Stir and enjoy!

The first of two sachets.

Smells like sesame and soy.

The second sachet.

Has a bright and spicy scent.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Chinese sausage and pepper flakes. The noodles are about 3 times as wide as your standard instant and a little thicker. They are quite chewy and hearty. The flavor is pretty good – soy, spicy and a nice oil all go together very well. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.
