Arrived without any explantation
by Suzanne written 29 days ago
I purchased this as a gift for a friend but when it arrived, she had no idea who had sent it.
I took the time to write out a “message” or “card” to say why she was receiving it and to wish her a happy birthday. Alas, none of this made its way to her and she had no idea that :
A) It was a birthday present
B)That it would be a monthly delivery (so she would know to expect more shipments)
C) That it WAS FROM ME!
If I send someone a gift, I most definitely want them to know that it’s FROM ME!
I cannot comment on the actual product because, it was sent as a gift to a friend and so I did not actually taste the items or see what they were.
But obviously, the biggest takeaway is that my name or the birthday message I took time to compose never made it in the shipment.
Very disappointed with the service.

There was no info card included, so I'm not sure exactly what the brands and flavors are here, so I'll describe them:
Jin Ramen Spicy: This was my favorite of the bunch! I call this "Asian spicy," aka spicier than your average "spicy" food. It had a spicy sweet flavor, which is my absolute favorite, and was really delicious.
Hot Chicken Flavor Ramen: I haven't tried this one yet but I'm hopeful that it will be nice and hot. Chicken flavor ramen is my preferred flavor. I can tell this one is Korean because I recognize the hangul, but I don't actually read the language so I can't tell you what it says.
Nomgshim Black Ramen: I ate this one first because Nongshim is the one brand I've had before. You can't really tell from the photo above, but they have these cute little characters on their packaging. This one also had great spicy flavor.
Mi Goreng: These are an Indonesian noodle and were eaten without broth. There were packets of chili paste, soy sauce, and another flavored sauce inside plus onion crunchies and the flavor powder. They tasted so good and I wished that the serving size was bigger.
My Kuali Penang White Curry Noodle: I haven't tried this one yet either but it sounds great. I've never had White Curry before.
Gourmet 555 Seaweed: Seaweed snacks! If you've never had them and think they sound weird I highly suggest you give them a try anyway. If you like sushi you'll like seaweed snacks. They're just dried pieces of seaweed with some flavoring added and are really good.
$25 per box may seem expensive for ramen, but this isn't your standard ramen. That comes out to about $4 per pack, which I think is fair considering the flavors are different and are from international brands. Plus there was a nice set of chopsticks in the box, too. If you're a ramen enthusiast like me then you should definitely give this box a try!
