We’re back trying out some instant noodles from legendary brand Cup Noodle. These noodles are often on the more premium end of the instant noodles scale, so they come with a certain level of expectation. I was also told repeatedly by people I know that this new flavour is extremely good, and, well…
I was lied to. These are awful. Abysmal. Atrocious.
First the smell. It’s strong, as soon as you peel back the lid the smell hits your nose in a wave of musky cheeseness. At first this smell is strong and impressive, but once water is added it gets far too strong. It’s off-putting. It stinks.
The taste is just as dreadful. The best way to compare to anything else is like if someone took the congeled layer of sauce on top of a microwavable spaghetti carbonara, left it out for a day, added a dangerous amount of salt, spat in it, and then put it on some noodles.
The noodles are the only salvageable aspect of this noodle-nightmare. They would have been better plain, without the cheesy catastrophe.
These were really bad. I never want to think about them again. Rating: NEVER out of EVER AGAIN.
