Tastes Like...

Yuk.. Very oniony.
There's a mild set of other flavours in there, but the onion is rather overpowering, and it's not going down well at all.
The noodles are extremely chewy, too. Thin, and rather PotNoodle in style, but SO chewy!!

Rating : 2/5 - Too oniony for me.

Not a big fan of onions either. And nobody likes chewy noodles.

Tastes Like...

The little chicken balls are nice and chewy, which isn't the texture I expected, but not in a bad way.

A really tasty chicken broth, but again with the onions.
Really getting sick of the onions, this week!!

.. the noodles, though..
I'm not really sure what they did to these things, but they're indescribably different. Kinda chewy, and such a weird taste to them.
It's definitely not the taste of the broth. They seem to have their own unique weird taste, and I'm not sure that I like them..!

Rating : 1/5 - didn't enjoy this one!!

The end of December.





And it's not looking entirely like the image on the leaflet.
A rather large lemon takes up a lot of the space..

Eek!!

Looks Like


BRAAAAAINS!!!

Tastes Like...

Lemon!!
The sweet variety of lemon, not the sharp tartness of a really sour lemon.
Just the nice sweet citrus kick, and actually it's a lot nicer than I was expecting.
Kinda like sherbert lemon flavour, but without the tang.

The noodles aren't quite cooked through, though, and are a little crunchy in places. Maybe that's how it's meant to be. Not sure..

Rating : 4/5 - A decent ending.

A bit too watery, methinks!!

Tastes Like...

a nice rich curry taste, but not too spicy.
The little "looks like chunks of potato" are definitely not potato! They're squishy and gooey and slimy, and not at all what my mouth was expecting!!!
The broth has a vague orangey smell to it, which is weird in a curry.

The noodles are the tasty thin ones, doing a lot of flavour soaking.

Rating : 5/5 - unexpected contents, but not in a bad way!

Very very fishy smell!!!

Tastes Like..

Doesn't taste anywhere near as fishy, and instead has the taste of a nice vegetable soup.
The noodles are the waterproof variety, however. Booo!!!

Pickles!!
But sweet pickles.
But still pickles.
The smell is extremely offputting, but the taste itself is ok.
The added spice makes it worthwhile.. .. I suppose..

Not a fan of pickle flavour stuffage. I love sweet. I love sour. I love spice. I love bitter. I love sweet and sour. I should love stuff like Branston pickle. But I don't. It's just too... :/

I thought I might share my two favorite noodle boxes at the moment!

My "when I'm not eating the Zenpop" noodle of choice is NongShim, which are nice and super spicy, and are a lovely chewy sort of noodle. They're definitely the best that I've come across in all my noodling.

Tastes Like..

Spicy!!
Really spicy!
Up there with a Bombay Bad Boy, in the amount of heat you can feel clawing it's way down your throat.

The flavour is. Um.. not sure.
The thing says Chicken, but I wouldn't say it's chicken'y.

Rating : 5/5 - Who cares about the flavour when there's this much spice. Mmm...

These descriptions are getting a little lacklustre, aren't they!!?



Looks Like...



Tastes Like...

An odd mechanical taste to the noodles, and the broth is very oniony.
There are quite a lot of the little meaty blobs in there, and they're really quite tasty, but the oniony broth isn't going well with it.

Rating : 2/5 - quite meaty, but not enough to make the onion taste worthwhile.
