Noodle Eight - The last of October's selection





Looks Like



Tastes Like...

Hard to describe. A very smokey taste, and an almost tobacco like smell.
If these were Nicorette Noodles, they'd be spot on!
The oil packet was at least nice and oily, so the post-strained noodles haven't become brain like!!

Rating : 5/5 - a good noodle to end on!

More Noodles

We're now onto the November box.
Cheat sheet - Side One - Side Two





Looks Like



Tastes Like

Such a strange smell. Very reminiscent of Salt and Vinegar crisps, but with a little beef mixed in!
Taste isn't actually that powerful, and it's mostly in the smell.
They're quite bland, if I'm honest. Either that or my tastebuds are dead!!
Very stringy Noodles, but the standard Pot Noodle variety. Just thinner.

Rating : 4/5 - not much to complain about, but could've done with more flavour.

Reading the description, it sounds like they basically chucked EVERY kind of food in a pot!

November Noodle Two





Looks Like...



Tastes Like...

Rather beefy. A bit like a drink of Oxo! Big pieces of pork for extra flavour, but otherwise quite a bland beefy taste to it.
Not much of a spice in there. I was looking forward to something spicy.
Stringy Noodles, but they do indeed soak up a lot of the flavour. They're kinda slimy, though, as a result.

Rating : 3/5 - neither exciting or dull. Just somewhere inbetween.

These noodles really go to show that no matter how exciting or unusual they sound, they always have the power to disappoint. Shame

More? Go on then!!

November Noodle Three





Looks Like



Tastes Like

Very thin sauce. Brown thin oily sauce!!
The big slabs of pork are incredibly tasty, and the oily sauce is rather nice, too.
A very meaty flavour to the whole thing.
It's good, but it's like it's lacking a bit of flavour. Maybe the packet of ketchup that you get in a Beef and Tomato Pot Noodle..?
It's good, but .. .. something's not quite right!

Rating : 4/5 - Nice, but is missing something.

November Noodle Four







Looks Like...



Tastes Like...

First up, that giant slab..
Tasted kinda vaguely meaty, but was extremely rubbery, and not recommended!!
If I get another of those, it'll be chucked!!

Under it were super thick noodles. Very much looking like Pot Noodle Noodles, but twice the width.
There are also little yellow smushy ball things, which I'm assuming are egg. They do taste a bit eggy.

There's not much taste to the broth, though. That's the ultimate letdown in this hodgepodge of oddness.

Rating : 1/5 - Bleurgh.

I'm wolfing through November's noodles, and today's tiny noodle won't help..

It's alright, I suppose.
Nice chicken flavour. Enjoyable, but tiny.
Is this the same on I had before..??

Hmm..

Rating 3/5 - Not enough!!!

Not a fan of just chicken & noodles. I love chicken. I love noodles. Put them together though and they are boring as fuck. Noodles need spice and other things. Not just chicken flavouring.

Noodle Six





Looks Like


A right pigs ear!!

Tastes Like..

First, the Pig's Ear didn't taste of anything.. just a slightly crispy pasta-like blob. *shrugs*
The soup is kinda creamy, and certainly tastes unique, but I wouldn't call it Ginger, or even Milk. It's definitely different, though.

Rating : 4/5 - Different, but not bad different. Could do without the Pigs Ear.

Noodle Seven





Looks Like



Tastes Like...

"Wow!" was my initial impression upon opening the dry noodle pot, as the waft of hamburgers floated through the kitchen.
It's still a strong smell after having "cooked" the noodles.
The blend of hamburger meat and a pickle/relish smell is rather distinctive, and incredibly powerful.

The flavour continues as you're eating it, and it's really rather alarming how much like a proper hamburger this tastes.

Rating : 5/5 - Perhaps the best noodle, so far!!

.. but I wouldn't want it too often, I don't think, as it does get a bit sickly towards the end.

The last noodle for November, and it's....





Looks Like..


Extremely dry!!

Tastes Like..

There's no denying it, it really is identical to the flavour of a tube of Sour Cream and Chive Pringles!!
.. a shame that those are my least favourite Pringle flavour.

Rating : 4/5 - Delicious idea, let down by the flavour.

And that's the end of November.
Coming soon.. December

Gotta admit, Japanese packaging always looks amazing. Often very weird, but amazing.

It's time to launch into another month of Noodles..

But we're still playing catchup! ... It's December!!
January's is already here, and it says "1901" on the side of the box. Luckily it turned up here, and not at Frasier's..

Noodle One





Looks Like..



Tastes Like.

Very fishy!
But fishy with a kick to it.
The fishiness is "Good Fish", like a Cod/Tuna kinda thing, not "Bad Fish" like those horrible strong seafoods.
The kick also helps quite a lot, and takes away from the fishiness.

Noodle wise, bit of a let down. It's the "waterproof" ones, but .. Maybe it's a good thing that the noodles aren't full of the fishy flavour..?

Rating : 2/5 - Not a great start.

Are you aware that the Japanese use reverse order for dates? Therefore 1901 is year 19 and month 1. So yeah, January 2019. And nothing to do with Frasier. Shame

Not a great start at all.

Yep, I've been using reverse order for many years. Works great for filenames, as they all end up in the correct order when sorted alphabetically.

Tastes Like...

Has a hint of Wine to it. ..
Lots of flavour, but that overpowering taste of Wine is kinda offputting.
The nice thick noodles are Pot Noodle variety, so they're really soaking up the strange wine flavour.
Hmm..

Rating : 2/5 - Not for me. Nice, but not for me.
