Re-Review: Nissin Top Ramen Cucharealo Home-Style Tomato Chicken Flavor Ramen Noodle Soup

Thought I’d try this one again – it’s pretty sad – I have nothing new to review! Looking forward to some new varieties coming soon though hopefully! A couple from the UK have informed me that they’re sending a treasure trove of interesting varieties! Can’t wait! In the meantime, here’s the elusive Cucharealo – haven’t seen it for sale anywhere yet. Good stuff! Here’s the original review here.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added a fried egg, cheese, Taxes Pete hot sauce, sweet onions, chicken lunch meat and Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake. The noodles are great – short and there’s tons of them. The broth has a really nice tomato taste with a hit of cumin. Great stuff! Gonna give it a 3.5 out of 5.0 stars yet again.

This place was amazing when I was a kid; you could put your hand on the window outside and it would make the train inside move! I miss the old guard of the enormous department store.

#849: Nissin Top Ramen Cucharealo Home-Style Tomato Chicken Flavor Ramen Noodle Soup

Here’s another one of the new varieties that Nissin Foods USA sent me earlier this month to review. I got a comment from someone saying Cucharealo means ‘spoon it up.’ Makes sense – Nissin has a similar product called ‘Spoon it’ with flavors like chicken, beef and beet stew while the Cucharealo line is more hitting the Mexican flavors. The last one I tried was awesome – let’s give this one a try!

Short, thin noodles.

A single seasoning packet.

I gave it a taste – has a slightly tangy tomato taste.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added onion, red bell pepper, some over roasted chicken, Krazy Mixed Up Salt, a fried egg, Crystal hot sauce and some cheddar cheese. The noodles thin and short – definitely good for a spoon. The broth is pretty good – has a good tomato flavor. Not bad! 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 070662081013 .

New Product Samples From Nissin Foods, USA

So I got an email from my contact at Nissin Foods in Gardena California mentioning a package was sent. What could it be?

Hey a big box of heavy bubble wrap! I love bubble wrap – wait, bubble wrap isn’t heavy – what’s underneath it?

What’s this?! Okay so they’ve got two new products that look interesting. First is Nissin Top Ramen Short Cuts. What it is are the seasoned short noodles – like the Spoon-It or the ones you find in the Nissin Big Cup Noodles. The box has a big bag (4 1/2 cups) of the pre-seasoned noodles. Basically, it’s instant noodles meets the portion sizing ability of instant potatoes. Also, other than Top Ramen packs, I think this is the first thing they’ve used the Top Ramen name on before! They come in Chicken, Roast Chicen, Beef and Lime Chili.

The other new addition is called Nissin Top Ramen Cucharealo. I’m not sure what Cucharealo means, but it’s obviously for the latino market – some great sounding flavors include Home-style Picante Chicken, Tomato-Chicken and Habanero Shrimp.

Looking forward to reviewing all of these in the future!
