Pokemon Ramen (Soy)

Posted in Lifestyle

Hello!  It’s once again time for a savoury post, just to balance out all the sweet things I share with you all usually.    Today I will be sharing with you the Pokemon Ramen (Soy).

They say:

This Pokemon style instant ramen is packed with soy flavor and only takes a few minutes to prepare. Minced fish circles printed with Pikachu and Pochama give this delicious ramen a truly unique look!

Includes a sticker with 10 to collect.

I say:

When this adorable Pikachu adorned tub of ramen arrived into my life via OyatsuBox a few weeks ago, I knew it wouldn’t be long before I was tucking in.

Upon opening, I was greeted with a subtle, salty scent.  It had hints of spice too, which made my very excited to try them.  However, I was not happy with those bits of sweetcorn I quickly spotted, and I fished them out before I added hot water.   Not even sorry.

These noodles didn’t take long to be ready, and it seemed it only took a matter of minutes before I could gobble them up.

The ramen broth had a subtle soy flavour.  It wasn’t overpowering in the slightest, and it complimented the ramen noodles nicely.  The noodles reminded me of those from another ramen I have tried, the Butamen Instant Noodles.

To say it was an instant snack, I thought the noodles were good quality and enjoyable.  They were a comfortable balance between soft and chewy.  They were not heavy nor starchy, and overall I thought the ramen was comfortably filling.  It isn’t going to make you feel “busting as the seams” full but it does placate hunger pangs for an hour or two.

I am so glad that there was not any more sweetcorn lurking around in the noodles.  I’m sorry if I offend any sweetcorn lovers out there, but I honestly despise it.

I’m going to be honest here and admit that I was not sure what the pink things were at first.   I tried one, and the texture reminded me of ham.  Once I had had a few more chews, the taste appeared and it had a weird artificial, almost paper taste so I didn’t eat any more.     I now know that they are “minced fish circles” and I was supposed to eat them – d’oh!  Oh well.  I was more than happy with just the noodles on their own.

Again, I would recommend that keep a drink of water nearby.  The saltiness of the ramen broth can be dehydrating.

The sticker I received was of this cheeky looking Pikachu.  I’m not sure where to use it.  I am quite tempted to stick it on to the face of my blogging notebook, so the cheekiness of Pikachu is always with me… but I would be so upset if it became ruined!

I could definitely eat this tub of Pokemon Ramen again, and I am already tempted to place a sneaky order for a few more tubs (even if it was just for more stickers.)   I would imagine these would be perfect for travelling or camping, as they didn’t take long to prepare and were a filling snack.

Would you try Pokemon Ramen?
