Nissin Souper Meal - Chicken with Vegetable Medley

nissanramen.jpgIf thereís one thing I can really get behind, itís instant ramen. Quick to make, fairly filling, cheap, and oh so tasty. Iíve been picking up bulk packages of Nissin Souper Meal (Chicken with Vegetable Medley), and found them to be rewarding in the extreme. First off, the size is incredible. These babies are probably the biggest ramen cups (or bowls rather) Iíve ever seen. It comes with a packet of dried vegetables and herbs as well as a packet of flavoring. Pour in the packets, toss in a generous amount of water, nuke for 5 minutes, and youíve got your meal. The ramen noodles are a lot flatter and thinner in Souper Meals, which prevent the incredibly annoying under-cooked texture you sometimes get with Top Ramen or Cup Noodles. The vegetables are an excellent addition for the texture and for variety, but I canít say they bring a whole lot to the party flavor-wise (excluding the herbs). Thereís also an amusing little packet of liquid called ďThe Finishing Touch FlavoringĒ that you add once the bowl is cooked, and interestingly enough, REALLY makes a difference in the taste for the better. Iíve only tried this one flavor so far, but as many times as I sit down to it, I donít get sick of it. Two thumbs up, 10/10, whatever you wanna call it, this is some tasty ramen.

Phoood rating: Outstanding!

I've also tried the beef flavor and it's absolutely delicious, too! This product, in my estimation, beats the flavor of the "standard" cup of noodles products by miles!

I have this probably like 12 times and each time i think to myself, I would rather eat the container it came in than it itself. Its just the same as good ol' top ramen.

I'm terrible...simply for the fact that I cannot STAND ramen from the container, but rather ramen from the package. perhaps it's because i eat it dry with eggs? call me weird all you want, but that's how i eat my ramen:)

I'am a ramen junkie:) You can add to it, and it becomes a meal. I like leftover steak or pork chops, cabbage, mushrooms, peas, onions....etc. And dont forget a few bouillon cubes for extra seasoning. Or like Lorraine, add an egg! All of that and maybe your out 2 bucks, cant beat that.
