About this deal

I like to keep instant noodles around for a quick lunch when I'm working from home and can't be bothered to make something nicer. At first I thought it was part of the pots ingredients but upon closer examination and testing with a lighter flame, it was plastic. Trust in Chinese food products has been somewhat thin with the variety of food scandals China has had. The first packet I tasted, I wasn't overly impressed but they've grown on me over time and I quite like them.

Don’t hesitate in making your decision to purchase these extremely tasty spicy noddles, you will not disappoint. Even though these are very flavourful, I personally I like to add my own "XTREME" hot seasonings as well as a small dollop of sauce in addition to the sachets provided. flavor sachets, Instant 3 in 1 noodle sensation, Snack, soup and dry serving, MSG free, Suitable for vegetarians, Halal – Malaysia. I prefer to add these at the end so they are not diluted by the water although the Soy Sauce one is very thick and hard to squeeze out so I ended up using my own, but the seasoning and flavours do give an authentic Chow Mein flavour to the noodles.However, as stated before, these flavourings are definitely not hot, at least when diluted by the reccomended 300ml of water per packet is added. Some mention that they are not too hot and not too mild, with a really nice warming and umami ish flavour.

Noodles: WHEAT flour, palm oil, salt, raising agent (sodium carbonate E500), acid regulator (potassium carbonate E501), emulsifier (phosphate E452), thickener (sodium alginate E401) Seasoning sachets: hydrolised plant protein (contains SOYBEANS), salt, sugar, pepper powder, caramel powder, mushroom powder, coarse chili, vegetable oil (palm olein), chili powder, flavour enhancers (disodium guanylate E627, disodium inosinate E931, disodium succinate E364). I have had spicy noodles in the past that are all spice and no taste, but these definitely have a distinctive taste to them as well as the kick. Yeast Extract, Caramel Powder (Colour, E150a), Palm Oil Citric Acid (Acidity Regulator, E330), Silicon Dioxide (AntiCaking Agent, E551), Disodium Inosinate, Disodium Guanylate (Flavour Enhancers, E627, E631).

I would be embarassed to tell my Uni-dorm roommates that these are even "spicy" to be totally honest. I would say they are not "Extreme" like advertised but they still do leave that tingly and warm sensation in the mouth.

The Noodles are MSG free and suitable for vegetarians according to the packet as well as being tasty, good value at just over 30p a packet paid. They mention that it is delivered fairly quickly, it's easy to prepare and it doesn't leave you feeling bloated.I find that the oil sachet is a pain to get all the bits out of, a lot of the gritty spices refuse to leave the sachet. One contains the standard mix of assorted seasoning and powder, the other has vegetable oil as well as Chilli. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. What really rescued these for me and made them worth the money was that the the TWO included flavour sachets. This is simply because I eat alot of ramen and they can start to taste bland otherwise, so it's not compulsory.
