Noodle Eight. The end of January





Looks Like..



Tastes Like...

A drained noodle lives or dies on the oiliness of the included sachet of oil.
In this case, I've ended up with the NoodleBrain clumped mass, and it isn't exactly "slurping" very well.

Taste wise, there's a little bit of a spice kick, but the actual flavour is that strong Worcester sauce flavour that seems to be occurring frequently in these noodles.

Rating : 4/5 - a little too dry, but otherwise flavourful enough.

Tastes Like..

A very wine'ish smell coming from the broth.
A rather salty taste... this whole month's theme is "Shoyu" (Soy Sauce) so I imagine there's a lot of salty noodles, coming up.
The mushroom taste is also really quite pronounced. There's very much a "cream of mushroom soup" vibe going on..

Rating : 4/5 - I'm not actually a fan of mushroom soup, but this was alright.

Hmm..
The March/April box has just arrived, and it now contains only 7 noodles.

When I subscribed it was 9.. And yet I'm still paying the same price?!
Nah, don't think so.

I won't be renewing the subscription, so once the current subscription's done, that'll be all the noodles done with.


I've got the Feb one, and this is the next one, then there should be one after that, too.. If I've counted these right!!

It's extraordinarily oniony!!
It tastes quite a lot like Pickled Onion Monster Munch, but with a strange tomato-like tang to it, too.

Rating : 2/5 - too oniony for me.

You know when you walk past the Fish Market, and the smell makes you glad you don't ever go INTO the Fish Market?
Smells exactly like that..

The broth is .. yyeeeuuck!!!

I've not given up on many of these noodles, but today is one of those days.
Cheese Butties for me.

Scary fishy things!!
There's a strong combination of Smokey Bacon and Prawn Cocktail crisps..
The little shrimp things tasted exactly like you'd expect. Fishy, and kinda crunch, and .. eeeuwww!!

Other than those, however, it was more the smokey taste that proved to be more prominent, and the broth was quite tasty, with the noodles doing a lot of flavour-soaking.

Rating : 4/5 - Only one little thing let it down.. .. and there were 3 or 4 of the little buggers.

You can really taste the butter. It tastes exactly like Popcorn Fake-Butter.
The chicken/potato/etc is mild compared to the butter!!

The noodles are very stringy, but have at least done a good job of soaking up all the butter flavouring!

Rating : 3/5 - I do like butter, but ... maybe not this much!

Certainly not what I expected.
It's very creamy, like a thick Cream of Chicken Soup kinda broth, rather than being as watery as it actually looks.
The noodles don't quite work with the creaminess, but at least they haven't turned into SuperNoodles!
There's a nice kick of the Salt-Children every so often, which is nice, but not too spicy.

Rating : 5/5 - I enjoyed this one!

End of the February Noodles

Tastes Like...

The little garlic sachet was thick and gooey, like some kind of Garlic Mayonnaise or something, as a result, it's a very garlic'y taste, but .. it's also rather sweet.
There's almost a fruity taste to the whole thing, which I wasn't expecting.

Nice and oily, too, so it's not all dried out into a giant NoodleBrain clump.

Rating : 5/5 - Nothing to complain about, here!

April Begins!! (They've renamed the packs to be the month ahead, not the current month)

Cheat Sheet : Side One, Side Two.
Only 7, this month.
They've tried to convince me that a shitty pair of 5p chopsticks are enough to warrant the loss of one of the noodles.
Don't think so, Zenpop!!

Fairly sure I've had this one before. Certainly tasted familiar.
It's quite nice, to be honest, and not as 'seafoody' as it sounds.
