I found Tradition Instant Noodle Soup in the Kosher Foods section of the supermarket. How odd, yes?
- They're made in Canada (and distributed by Tradition Foods in Los Angeles.) I don't know why I find that so strange, but I do. I guess because when I think of Canada, I think of poutine and maple syrup and curling, but I never seem to think of ramen.
- They're Kosher for Passover. That's kind of cool.
- Notice that they're "Vegetable Style," and not "Vegetable Flavored." I don't know what the distinction is. Maybe "Vegetable Flavored" was too long to fit in the little banner there.
Just add hot water and wait a few minutes.
Vegetable Packet: N/A
Like most cup noodles, these have a small sprinkling of dehydrated veggies in the cup, but there is no packet to open and mix.
Seasoning Pouch: N/A
Fairly delicious. I'm not usually a fan of vegetable-flavored ramen - chicken or pork is my first choice - but the Tradition broth was tasty, with elements of soy, onion, and umami (and, of course, plenty of salt.)
This is not marketed as a spicy ramen.
The combination of tasty broth and nicely-textured noodles is a winner, even stacked up against industry standard Nissin Cup Noodles. Recommended.
