Ramen Review 15: Tradition Instant Nood Soup - Vegetable Style

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.
Ease of Preparation: 10/10
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

Taste: 8/10
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.)

Spiciness: N/A
This is not marketed as a spicy ramen.

Overall:  9/10
The combination of tasty broth and nicely-textured noodles is a winner, even stacked up against industry standard Nissin Cup Noodles.  Recommended.

KfP, eh? What's the ingredients list, if I may ask? Mostly wondering about the identity of the grain used.
