February Noodle Five







Looks Like...



Tastes Like...

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!

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!

Looks and sounds great. A few mixed chopped veggies in there and it'd be perfect.

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.

Crikey, that's a good week I've gone without noodles!!

Let's eat!!

March/April - Noodle Two





Looks Like...


Soup with a burger in it..?

Tastes Like...

The weird meat circle tasted exactly like previous meaty circles. They do enjoy putting large circular blobs in their noodles, don't they!?
The broth is quite oniony. Nice and creamy, though. A good "soup"!!

The noodles themselves seemed to swell up quite a bit in the water, but were still quite chewy and actually rather tasteless. Not a fan of these ones, if I'm honest.

Rating : 2/5 - Had better.. certainly not worthy of the Gold packaging!

March/April Noodle Three





Looks Like...



Tastes Like...

The little packet of "Rich Deliciousness" smelt exactly like the feint smell you get from freshly grown cress!!
Mixed in with the vinegary smell of the broth, it ended up smelling kind rubbery.
Not the best taste, if I'm honest.
The noodles were also kinda bland, and not tough at all. They weren't quite SuperNoodle bad, but they were somewhere halfway between a Pot Noodle and those dreaded gooey splotches of slime that Batchelor call noodles.

Rating : 1/5 - A rather unpleasant aftertaste..

The description doesn't sound too pleasant; therefore I wasn't expecting a great review rating. Yep. What I expected TBH.

March April Noodle Five





Looks slightly different to the image on the sheet. May be a different flavour. Who knows!!

Looks Like..



Nice thick chunky noodles, there!!
Little splotches of egg and all the meaty bits do at least sound like the description above, so.. I'm going to assume it's the correct flavour!

Tastes Like...

Ok, I guess. The broth was a bit watery, but the meaty chunks were really big and chunky and chewy and lovely.
The noodles were a little watery, too. Maybe I put too much water in, but I did fill to the fill level, so that ain't my fault!!


Rating : 4/5 - Alright, but kinda bland and unexciting in the same way that a Beef and Tomato Pot Noodle is.

Sounds ok.

I think they've just updated the packaging - the kanji writing is the same - just horizotal, not vertical.

I guess so..
I got as far as the third character, and noticed the "s were ..like.. WAY far away from the position they are in the other version. Figured that was more than enough to change the character, but,. Guess not! I'm no Japanese reader!

There's a gorgeous wood-smoked aroma coming from them!
The spices are definitely strong with this one. Quite a kick, right from the start.
Flavourwise, just a whole lot of spices all mushed together.
The noodles are nice and thick, and everything's pretty much spot on.

Rating : 5/5 - definitely a new favourite!

It's really quite flavourful, lots of spices, and a great kick to it, too.
Couldn't tell you what it tasted of, mind. Just that it was very nice!
Even Mum enjoyed the smell of it. (She hasn't been liking the smells of a lot of these!)

Rating : 5/5 - Haven't a clue what it was, but it was gorgeous!

Sounds lovely and probably just my cup of tea. Right up my street. That.

-----------------

I don't know if I mentioned it, but my wife got me a load of Japenese "goodies" for Christmas 2018. Due to being really ill at the time I never ate any of them. Some are sweets, some are savouries, some are fishy (there's definitely some octopus and squid in there) and all are in cartoonish type wrappings with full on Japanese texts. No instructions or details as to what any are, other than what's on the packet.

I plan to start opening them from tomorrow. I will photograph and rate my discoveries (in a new forum). I aim to do one a day, so that's a week or so worth of me being violently ill. Probably.
