I still haven't made it to the store to grab a package of the Neoguri for the requested review, so for lunch today I'm going back to the Noodle Stash. I settled on a Cup Noodles product, just since it's been a while since I did one. I picked out this flavor because it sounded more interesting than the average chicken, beef, or shrimp versions, so it's probably time I gave it a chance!
Keurig single-cup coffee makers, you can make lunch straight out of the coffee machine! Just use the 10-ounce cup setting without a K-Cup, and make sure to keep the paper lid (and your fingers) clear of the hot water stream. Can it get more convenient than that?
Anyway, whatever source you use for your boiling water, once the cup is filled to the line, we let the noodles stand covered for three minutes, and then we are good to go. I notice that the noodles seem to have absorbed more water than I expected--the water level has actually gone down a bit during the stand time.
I liked this one quite a bit! With the interesting flavor, the very convenient preparation, and the very budget-friendly price, this is a definite recommend and repurchase. :)
