First time at Woolworths, if you love Indomie Mi Goreng you have to try this.. The flavours will blow your mind.
Been out in Asian grocery stores for a good year or so though.
They definitely nailed the taste with this one!
How much are they normally at Asian supermarkets? $1.30 seems pretty expensive for 55 grams at Woolies.
Can't remember; sorry.
I think it's around $2.20 (in Footscray at least).
Generally around $1.20-$1.50 when on sale at asian stores.
Umm should give it a go. Ta.
I have grave reservations about these but will try just once
If you like Indomie Mi Goreng, you'll like these. They really nailed the flavour!
agree, absolutely love the flavour of these. Not a big bag but just enough before it gets too salty
tastes like a sweet, slightly spicy BBQ chips with MSG. Not a fan
You will need to reserve a grave if you get hooked on these salty snacks :P
What are the ingredients?
That's possibly one of them, but wouldn't bet my life on it.
the bag contains air as well
With or without fried egg?
without the noodle.
TOO much MSG after tasting
potato (62%), palm oil (antioxidant 307), sugar salt, flavour and flavouring(traces of peanut, milk, egg), flavour enhancer 621, onion, garlic powder, soy sauce powder, colour 150a, shallot flavour, dried chilli flavour, yeast extract, anti-caking agent (551), paprika extract.
hope that helps
aw man, palm oil :/
Yeah that’s a deal breaker for me. & this doesn’t even say “sustainable” palm oil
This prompted me to look into whether the noodles used unsustainable palm oil as well.
Apparently all indomie products use "sustainable" palm oil. Still not good for you but hopefully a little more ethical.
WOW Hypertension in a 55g packet. How convenient!
Holy MSG migraine batman!
Seems like lots of nails
Grabbed some from an Asian grocery store before Christmas. Interesting taste.
The taste of these is too rich, probably msg. I still prefer Kettle/Smith's/Doritos over these.
I love migoreng but I find the taste of these to be way too salty
…something not quite right about that name.
You should see what the mother company name is.
$2.60 wow that’s a massive profit margin for woolies.
My local Asian grocers sell them $1.50 each on the regular or 3 for $4.
In the past 3 months when I found out about these I’ve eaten way too many packets of these. Just need a coke to wash it down with and that burp after is the bees knees
Quite possibly but they also have higher operating costs, higher wages, higher store costs, advertising costs etc.
And higher turnover to cover all of those… $2.60 for a 55g bag of chips is a ludicrous amount of profit.
Couldn't find them in my local Woolies the other day, anyone know if they're in the regular chip aisle or some other section?
They were in the random Chinese New Year section at the Parramatta (Westfield Level 5) NSW store when I was there on Saturday
Cheers, found them in the same place at my local Woolies this morning.
Can confirm also at Woolies Oakleigh South. Got me two bags
Palm oil. It's PALM OIL.
Come on guys. This is exactly what you should not support. Seriously, one small thing you can do…
Not only bad for the environment - bad for you too.
Although, in this case, I'm still going to at least try one pack.
Flew over the Borneo island near BRUNEI and saw plenty forest gone to allow palm oil plantation that grows faster and make more money for the who knows there .
Have you flown over Australia? All that pasture used to be forest / bush. What's the diff?
If I don't use palm oil I get chafing
but ppl still pumps e85 / e10
Something about them nailing the flavour
Why do they have to use palm oil anyway
Cheapest and abundant
have other flavors? http://chitatodousaflavor.com/top3-2-crabfriedgoldeneggvolk....
Its definitely Halal, so you can't go wrong!
f you like Indomie Mi Goreng, you'll like these. They really nailed the flavour
you like Indomie Mi Goreng, you'll like these. They really nailed the flavou
ou like Indomie Mi Goreng, you'll like these. They really nailed the flavou
@franco cozzo: u like Indomie Mi Goreng, you'll like these. They really nailed the flavo
Why are people so anti palm oil? It's a much higher density oil crop than anything else. It also doesn't require hydrogenation to improve texture so doesn't suffer from the health negative of trans fat. The environmental standards of the places where it is grown are poor but surely forcing those places to grow other less efficient crops isn't going to result in better environmental outcomes? Have the soy and corn big boys from the US really gotten into our media this badly???
Common talk in Asia is because of C
A quick bit of googling or a visit to wikipedia would answer this question;
Under Environmental at the above link it says, among other issues with it;
Palm oil cultivation has been criticized for impacts on the natural environment,including deforestation, loss of natural habitats,which has threatened critically endangered species such as the orangutan and Sumatran tiger, as well as increased greenhouse gas emissions. Many palm oil plantations are built on top of existing peat bogs, and clearing the land for palm oil cultivation contributes to rising greenhouse-gas emissions
This thing taste, pardon, shit
So you've tasted shit before?
Believe it or not, I did
hey…thats no way to talk about your mum's cooking!
@franco cozzo: I'm serious; this is literally shit am talking about
If you like nails you'll like this. They really indomie the flavour
You'll really the flavour Goreng these like if you nailed the Mi the like they Indomie.
Do they use mono sodium aka msg?
No, they must have used poly sodium - everyone claims it's really salty.
Does anyone know what the flavour is like with these? Did they nail it? For the record I like Indomie Mi Goreng.
I have grave reservations.
watch out for NAILS!
Flavoured nails? What will they think of next?
So, this needs to be boiled first?
Warning, it comes with a bag of nails
These blew my mind. However, I did a whole new year new me thing last year and lost a whole bunch of weight. These could single handedly undo all this work.
So not only beware of nails, also will blow your mind too.
cheaper to mix doritos with mi-goreng sachets
Did they nail the flavour?
They did, provided you like Indomie Mi Goreng
Scan full price $2.60 at my local wollies thouugh its a smaller style store.
They did not NAIL the flavour IMO.
You are not qualified to judge if you are not Indonesian
…that sounds a little racist. If you like Indomie Mi Goreng, you'll like these. They really nailed the flavour!
I'm seeing the words nail and nailed being used lots in this deal.
…you really nailed that observation.
Tried these last night and don't know what the fuss is about. They are ok, but if I much prefer Kettle Chili, which are also way cheaper (per gram) when on special.
None in our local woolies - anyone seen any in WA?
I couldn't find them last week in the chip section or the international food section but someone mentioned it was in the Chinese New Year section at their Woolies. Found the random Chinese New Year section hidden away in my local this morning and got a few packs.
Thanks for the tip. I'd looked on the snack aisle, the international section and even the noodle section without luck.
