ZenPop are apparently sending out a replacement box.
NoodleReviews delayed until either the replacement gets here, or next month's does!!

I ate a gypsy snitzel yesterday

Interesting to see how many of those ramen kinds they have.

Vague update from ZenPop (I emailed them, this morning!)

-=-=-
Thank you for your kind message. Actually, we had a couple typhoons over Japan in September and shipping got a little bit delayed so I'm sure there is nothing to worry about. Unfortunately, International shipping is unpredictable and we can only wait. Even with tracking, doesn't guarantee that it will arrive faster. Sometimes it can take up to 8 weeks for a package to arrive.
Thank you so much for your patience. Please keep us updated if the packs still don't arrive after 8 weeks from shipment and we'll do our best to help you out.

It's ok, I found a new addiction.
Microwave rice + spices mixed in melted butter poured over the top.

I bought 2 x 3 packs of Uncle Bens about 2 weeks ago, and there's still 4 packs left. Might be a silly meal, but I certainly consider it to be a "treat"

Also, whenever I have toast, that gets lashings of butter all over it. Nom nom nom!!!! Heart attack central!!

.. but, again, maybe twice a month I'll have a couple of slices of toast, if that...

I eat "unhealthily" perhaps, but I also have to put up with being so ill-feeling that I rarely bother to actually do it.

Just got the shipping email for November's box..

I'm now looking forward to the inevitable fattening-up when three boxes all arrive at once!

LOL. I don't think you have to eat all three at once if they all arrive. I could be mistaken though!

Hurray!
I'm now slightly less worried about the noodles, now that my September Replacement box has finally arrived.
Still to come.. October and November!


Welcome back to SEPTEMBER!

Cheat Sheet Page One Page Two

Noodle One



Looks Like


Tastes Like..

As wide as they are, they're also very thin noodles, and have that horrible Super Noodle gooeyness to them.
Bleurgh!

A nice spicy and flavourful broth, though. The flavour is quite a lot like the old Tangy Toms crisps, but with a nice kick to it, too.
Good stuff.

Rating : 2/5 - Nice flavour. Shame about the noodles.

Lemongrass is a difficult one - it either doesn't taste of anything much or tastes like really bad artificial lemon flavouring. I had one recently with a LOT of lemongrass flavour - it went straight in the bin. I love lemon, but lemongrass is the same, but different. Bleurgh! I had another one a while back that tasted like I was eating perfume - it was very flowery/herby. Yuck!

As for SuperNoodles, yep; foul shite.

Noodle Two





Looks Like


Looks quite dry, to me..

Tastes Like

You can definitely taste the coconut, and there's a certain fruitiness, too.
A nice light taste, but not all that spicy.

Noodles aren't too slimy, today!

Rating : 4/5 - Sweetness gets a bit sickly towards the end, but otherwise it's ok.

Didn't have any of the noodles for dinner, today. (For those interested, we had chicken and stuffing barms!)

But hey!
Look what arrived!

Noodle Three





Looks Like



A very dark broth, but not as thick a broth as it looks. Very thin.

Tastes Like

Kind of a weird metallic taste, and rather oniony.
I'm not keen on onions, post-op.
The noodles, although thin, are at least rather good at soaking up the flavour, unlike those horrible seemingly-waterproof ones!

Rating 1/5 : Too oniony for me.

Your noodles don't look anything like the ones on the packaging. Which reminds me; you're cheating ! You aren't using chopsticks to eat these!

From today's "Poetry Corner" on AGameAWeek..

Oodles of Noodles are sat in my room.
Preparing themselves to be eaten.
I'll boil the kettle, then pick up a fork,
'Cos chopsticks have gotten me beaten.


And, the noodles are the same.... Or at least, the four (I think!) characters on the label are the same.
