There are instant noodle varieties—the different colored packaging, the foreign characters, the funny drawings.
Here are our top 7 picks of the weirdest instant noodle flavors. Some are so weird, we’re pretty sure you don’t know them at all!
1. Batchelor's Super Noodles: Bacon Flavour
Super Noodles is the brand name of a dehydrated instant noodle snack, made by Batchelors in the United Kingdom (previously made by Kellogg's) and sold under the McDonnells brand in Ireland. They are prepared by being placed in a saucepan of boiling water, adding the sachet of flavoring, and stirring. Super Noodles can also be cooked and prepared using a microwave oven.
Thank for these bacon instant noodles. Pair 'em with eggs and toast and t's actually pretty great stuff. But, you should know, the rest of the day your burps will taste like bacon. This one was sent to me by a Ramen Rater fan in England who also included about two dozen other fascinating packs with flavors such as Curry, Sweet & Sour, and Southern Fried Chicken.
2. Koka Purple Wheat Noodle
Koka is a brand of instant noodles, manufactured by Tat Hui Foods Pte. Ltd. - a company founded in Singapore in 1986. The noodles are available in a variety of flavors, as packets or cup noodles. They are sold within Singapore, and since 1987, have been exported to markets across Asia, the Middle East, the United States, Europe, Africa, and Oceania. Along with the Sanwa noodle brand, Tat Hui exports over 100 million packets a year, and are a leading brand in Ireland, behind Unilever's Pot Noodle, where they are distributed by Boyne Valley Foods.
Now, don’t let the color burst your ramen bubble. According to its makers, the noodles will apparently give you the equivalent of 84 blueberries’ worth of antioxidants in every 100 grams. It’s also healthier as it’s been baked and not fried. And oh, you can find these weird noodles right here in Singapore!
3. Tomato Yogurt Ramen
Tomato Yogurt Ramen. Usually, we associate yogurt with anything sweet, but it's ramen, right? So it must be savory? The curry powder, tomato sauce, and yogurt combine to make a thick and creamy broth. Grilled chicken makes the meal more filling, while the cilantro adds freshness.
Tomato Yogurt Ramen contains 10 billion lactic acid bacteria in noodles and 10 billion of them in soup, 20 billion lactic acid bacteria in total. The tomato taste matches very well with the yogurt taste. Contains lactic acid bacteria that makes the taste of the noodles more delicious. Made by adding tomato into the chicken and pork broth as well as yogurt powder, it has a creamy texture.
4. Rocket Brand Satoimo Noodles
Purple noodles eh? Weird. Couldn't pass them up, and actually, they were quite good. Makes for a colorful dinner plate. Purchased these at the Seattle Uwajimaya Asian supermarket.
In Japan, it is called satoimo (サトイモ, satoimo?), (kanji: 里芋) “village potato”. The “child” and “grandchild” corms which bud from the parent satoimo, are called imonoko (芋の子, imonoko?). Satoimo has been propagated in Southeast Asia since the late Jōmon period. It was a regional staple food before rice became predominant. The tuber, satoimo, is often prepared through simmering, but occasionally grated and eaten raw or steamed. The stalk, zuiki, can also be prepared a number of ways, depending on its variety.
5. Nissin Ajillo Instant Noodle
It looks as though ajillo is a Mexican/Spanish dish that features shrimp, vegetables, and sliced garlic.
The taste buds of Spaniards and Japanese get married in this cup. Garlic flavored olive oil is combined with toppings of cabbage, shrimp, and egg. If you love spice and you love garlic, chances are you’ll bow down to this amazing cup noodle.
6. Cheese Hamburger Ramen and Hot Dog Ramen
This is an extremely simple and delicious spin on the typical ramen noodles that can be EASILY found in the college environment! Something for the American patriots! Fushion food is popular in many countries but does this count? It counts right? Right...? Cheeseburgers and Hot Dogs are delicious nonetheless, so we're guessing you can't really go wrong with combining them with ramen!
7. Mayonnaise/Mustard Noodle
There's something strange and wonderful about this dual-chambered mayonnaise and mustard packet. It's from Japan, of course, the land of packaging gods. You squeeze it together with two fingers as shown and put it on the noodles after they're cooked. Go ahead and write your name in mayostard if you want. What's more, it's really good on top of this Nissin Yakisoba, purchased at a Japanese grocery in Seattle called Uwajimaya.
