#2249: Love Cook Sun Dried Noodle – Fruity Soy Bean Paste

A few months back I did a Meet The Manufacturer with Love Cook. Well, they’ve come out witha new flavor and sent me some to try! Let’s check it out!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Unsure whether it contains meat or not. To prepare, add noodles to a pot of boiling water and cook for 5 minutes. Drain. Add in contents of sachet. Stir and enjoy!

A thick orange liquid.

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles have a very nice texture and great chewiness to them – great stuff! The flavor is interesting; a little spicy and a little bit of a kind of sweet and tangy hit to it. Lots of little bits in there as well. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4713327177688.

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: #1840: Forest Noodles Sweet Potato Noodles With Sesame Paste Sauce

Today, we start with Forest Noodles’ sweet potato noodles. They’re sun-dried (no sun, no noodles). I think it would be neat to have a sun-dried noodle company here in the Seattle company, but it’s so cloudy around here that it probably wouldn’t work very well! Maybe in the summer months though… anyways, let’s see what we’ve got here!

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 in noodle block and cook 5.5 to 6.5 minutes. Drain. Add in sachet contents and two spoonfulls of water. Stir and enjoy!

Has a rich peanut scent.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion and pickled ginger. The noodles smelled like sweet potato as I pulled them from the water! They are very broad and thick with a very nice chew to them and a sweet potato flavor which is light and airy. The sesame flavoring was thick and rich, however it seemed like it could use a little saltiness. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars.
