Uni-President - Tung-I Instant Ramen Noodles

These are definitely the most unique instant noodles I have ever had. There is no specific flavor assigned to these, they are just "Instant Ramen Noodles" with a picture of a Merlin-esque wizard looking through a telescope. Weighing in at a miniscule 40g, these are a really tiny pack of noodles but could work well as part of a larger meal.

The back of the package contains Uni-President's slogan, which is "A Kiss to the Spirit of the Future". These particular noodles are released with several different space themed cartoon images on the packaging like astronauts and planets. I happened to pick the wizard looking through the telescope, but I assume all the different space-themed noodles have the same contents. The amount of noodles is absolutely tiny, but that was OK because I was eating some leftovers with the meal.


As you might expect, there is no distinctive flavor to these, as no particular flavor is even suggested by the packaging. It tasted a little bit like garlic and salt, but nothing was overwhelming. The noodles themselves were quite good. Like most Taiwanese noodles, they were extremely soft and flavorful. The noodles had almost a nutty flavor to them which I think comes from being fried in palm oil. All in all, these noodles were pretty good, but could only serve as a small piece of a bigger meal. I did really enjoy the packaging, though!

It's a little late for this, but this ramen's actually marketed for kids, called Science Mian.

It's fortified with vitamins or something.

Hmmm, you should put the seasoning and crush it then concume, not by cooked in soup!

actually, these aren't meant to be cooked. You open the bag, put the seasoning in, hold the bag closed, crush the ramen and eat it like that.

hey retard, why don't you do some more research before you make some stupid post about something you don't know anything about? you're not supposed to cook those. you pour the seasoning in the bag, crush it, and eat it dry. i've been eating those since i was 5 years old. you're fucking stupid.
