Review #82: Baby Star Snack Noodle – Chicken Flavor 「ベビースターラーメン」


It’s raining heavily, with thunder (and people have said there’s also hail). You know what that means? It means winter’s coming. I would be so much more excited about that if it actually snowed where I live. But it doesn’t. And I hate that. Ahh. The thunder is making me excited. LOL. I haven’t heard heavy rain/thunder in a while. The only thing I’m afraid for, is the power getting cut off. Because then I’d be very bored.

Okay, so that blurb had nothing to do with anything.

I’ve seen this Asian kid around before, “ベイちゃん”. He is the epitome of racism. I mean, seriously? Do I even have to say it. Whatever though, whatever, I don’t take too much offense. Like I said, I’ve seen this around before, and I always thought it was a “Chinese” snack, not Japanese. Indeed, the “sole agent” is in Hong Kong, but the “country of origin” is Japan.

The back is really entertaining.  So, “way to eat”; “can eat by hand”, “can eat from bag”, “suits the time when drink beer or tea”. Well, not a big influence in Engrish. But definitely amusing, to me at least. So the way I eat, is by hand. I wonder, does it really “suits” the time when “drink” beer or tea. Of course, I’m not allowed to drink beer, nor do I see myself every doing so in the future. And tea…well, no. I don’t drink tea at home. When I go out, yeah, but not at home.

HK Haul (part 2). Purchase this at Koamart for $1.19 or $1.99 at VeryAsia.

Since I’ve seen this snack before, it also means I’ve tried it before. Well, I don’t remember if I tried this exact flavor, but I definitely tried it. It was exactly the same way I thought it’d be. But of course, you don’t know what that way is.

If you’ve ever eaten ramen, “raw”, it will be easier to understand. So basically, it’s a long(depending on if it broke or not), crunchy, thin ramen I guess. Hopefully, you know what it looks like. It’s hard to get the taste by just one strand, so you pop a couple in your mouth at once. The taste is salty sweet, kind of like a sweet soy sauce. I wouldn’t really say that it tastes a whole lot like chicken, but it definitely has some chicken essence to it. So maybe not chicken chicken, but chicken broth.

For me, this is a good and yummy snack. For other people, I’m not sure though. I think this is one of those snacks that, you kind of have to have a certain palette to enjoy.

The packaging is okay, nothing too special, and certain people may take offense. The taste is good and yummy, I supposed more to certain taste buds though.

Overall Rating: B+

I’ve done with this. I would occasionally hypothetically buy it again. I do recommend giving it a try at the very least.
