I love Them
I really like these, they are great as part of my weight loss programme when im cutting down on carbs. yes they do have a fishy smell when you open them but as soon as you rinse them they are fine. They have are more slippery in texture to other noodles but you can add them to anything. I make miso soup with them and love it. Wish they where a bit cheaper but I only use half a pack for one meal.
Bought these as a low calorie noodle lunch, opened the packet and a fishy smell hit me first - this went away while cooking. Tasted bland and horrible and throughout the night had terrible nausea and vomiting (13 hours since eating), which showed they hadn’t digested one bit
Amazing noodle replacement when doing keto! They’re more of an Asian noodle replacement than for spaghetti but they did the job!
Great Low Calorie Alternative
Easy and quick, not the best noodles you will ever have but throw in the low calorie count and it is an absolute winner.
I dont particularly like the texture of these. Wish you would bring back the much tastier oomi noodles which were a lot more like normal noodles.
Worth a try
Very nice, I simmered on a low heat for 10 minutes and that seemed to soften them up
Ideal low-carb, low-calorie option for a Keto diet
Firstly, thank you to the other reviewers for their helpful advice :-) I did as suggested and rinsed the product thoroughly with boiling water and also with a splash of apple cider vinegar. I then gently fried them before adding a cooked lamb tagine to the pan - just to impart some flavour. I wouldn’t say that these are awesome but they bulked up my meal and they certainly weren’t terrible. They were somewhat firmer than noodles, a bit like mushrooms or squid, but not incredibly chewy. They are pricey though, so I will look for something cheaper, but otherwise I would buy them again. I think as long as you’re having them with something that is quite flavoursome or spicy, they are fine. No adverse effects suffered - Yay! Plus my 4 year old tried them and thought they were alright. Just look on them as a substitute for noodles.
Fantastic low carbohydrate substitute for rice!
Great alternative to rice for calorie counters! Unlike cauliflower rice it is odourless. Barenaked Noodles make a fantastic accompaniment to low fat curry, chilli con carne or sweet and sour dishes.
Vile plastic noodles
Terrible noodles, tasteless and of a plasticky texture
There's a fishy smell when you open the bag but no
There's a fishy smell when you open the bag but noodles don't taste fishy. I would recommend to rinse it in the water a few times and then boil it before use. I love the texture as it reminded me of Kanomjeen ( fresh, thin rice noodles in Thai cuisine which are made from rice ) it's lovely when eating with red or green curry.
