zero redeeming features
This was..... this was frankly horrible. I like ramen. I like shiitake. I added my favourite ramen toppings to it. It should have been a delight. I expected the "worst case scenario" to be merely OK. But no. It was... there was nothing good about it. It didn't taste of anything it was supposed to. It was like burnt sugar in water, with a weird bitter aftertaste.
Sugar Soup with questionable ethics!
Like others have mention it has an odd sugar alcohol taste to it. It's an overly sweet soup with eraser texture mushrooms. Unlike Itsu products the dried spring Onions didn't rehydrate into anything other than flat dried Spring Onion bits. The worst bit is the marketing spiel! "Eating more veg is good for you and good for the planet" Yet they import Mushrooms from China into Thailand to produce this garbage and then ship it the to the other side of the world to sell it. I am pretty sure we still have plenty of Factory's left in the UK that can produce sugar based products! There is little point in eating plant based or reduced meat diet's if the product has spent 10's of thousands of miles shipping around the globe to be produced!
excessive sugar content that runs taste
I thought it was okay when added noodles and extra veg and tofu although it is very very sweet! 12.4g sugar is too much and makes me not keen to buy again.
i was really looking forward to testing this product. It was truly awful. It had a really weird alcoholic smell and tasted oddly sweet. I had to throw it out. Really doesn't taste anything like i was expecting based on eating mushroom based ramen in restaurants such as Bone Daddies or Tonkotso.
Very tasty, poured over a stir fry
Absolutely appalling. The description mentions a deep umami broth - you won’t find that in this! As bland a broth as I’ve ever had. Had to add lots to make it taste better. Make it live up to the description or stop selling it.
Horrible flavour, I added tonnes of chilli sauce just so as not to waste it. Also I was expecting noodles with it as it's meant to be a meal!
Way too thick for ramen broth. Had to add a lot of water, and the flavour was almost like a Chinese black bean without the black bean. Not remotely ramen like and fairly unpleasant.
Disgusting even with all the upgrades I added in. And very expensive for a bag of gross liquid!
Horrible sickly sweet flavour, I had to try and kill it because of all the lovely things I put in. Also cooking instructions are completely off, I had to add loads of water to dilute the horribleness.
