I like to try to find flavors that sound unique and interesting, but often, I choose certain products to purchase and review simply because they amuse me. This Doll brand ramen is a Shrimp Wonton flavor, which sounds sort of interesting, although I don't really know how "wonton" would translate into a soup flavor and I expect it to just taste like shrimp. But, the emblem in the bottom corner declaring "Yummy" is sort of funny to me, and when I flipped the package over to discover that the maker is Winner Food Products, it became a must-try. A Winner is you!
The flavor of the broth is actually quite good! It really does have a taste that is reminiscent of fried wonton among the seafood notes. It's a pretty accurate rendition of a wonton soup flavor. The noodles don't have a bad texture either; being as thin as they are, they don't stay as firm as some, but they don't seem soggy or sticky. I am pleasantly surprised, and I thoroughly enjoyed these noodles. Looks like they really are a Winner after all! :D
