    People should be hoarding ramen instead of toilet paper at this price!

      Especially these ones! I'm pretty sure my heart pumps ramen instead of blood by this point.

      Would the sauce make the dried noodles less harsh on my derrier?

        If you eat with derriere, then maybe.

    •  

      too much ramen end up in the toilet so toilet paper needed as well

    •  

      That is exactly what Singaporeans did when the city was originally in lockdown. Their PM asked the citizens not to hoard, so they stopped it after a few days. Obedient citizens there.

    Wow would definitely hoard these at that price.

      They're instant noodles dude. The only thing that can possibly happen (after several months) is the seasoning packs get hard and the oil slightly coagulates. Hot water fixes both of these.

      • +1 vote

        If it is too far the used by, the noodles develops a stale smell and taste.

        • +7 votes

          How old are we talking? I've eaten noodles a year past their best before and they taste fine. Dehydrated noodle cake is literal bunker food.

          Maybe I'm not just as fussy, but I've never smelled the staleness on food so not entirely sure what you mean

          •  

            @pennypincher98: In particular I've had Shin Ramyun noodles taste very stale within 6 months of BB date on more than one occasion. Most noodles last longer than that though. Normally I'd agree with you and I have no problems treating best before as the suggestion that it is, not a rule.

          •  

            @pennypincher98: BuyoTheCat is right— what tends to happen with instant noodles is that the oil will start to go rancid and that will slowly result in taste degredation. Because ramen style instant noodles are flash fried (that's what makes them cook in 3 mins) and they also usually have palm oil in the noodles themselves, they don't really last that long. (There are instant noodle brands that are not flash fried, but its rare). If you're lucky you'll get 2-3 years out of them, but I would say the max is about a year, maybe even less for these. The seasoning usually has oil too, which is also a factor. It depends on the brand but basically the more oily a noodle, the quicker it tends to go stale. As soon as its made, oxidation of the oil starts which starts breaking and altering the chains and release acids that start tasting bad.

            That's why pasta and stuff (that has no oil) literally can last for ages. Also some people are more aware of the taste than other its still not great to eat old stuff with oil.

        •  

          What brand? These have plenty preservatives to last

      •  

        Leave it enough years and they go rancid. I know.

        •

    They had this with Hokkaido miso the last time it was short dated, bought 3 packs and still have some left over 2 years later lol

        Should be good for a few more years. I ate a 2017 Maggi one this year, just had to break up the seasoning a little 😂

    Never tried them, but looking at fan club here, I am going give it try…hopefully black garlic will keep Dracula's away too…:-)

    • +37 votes

      You grow up on Maggi.
      You become a student, or first move out, and you graduate to IndoMi.
      You learn the ways of 2 minute ramen, and level up to Nissin.

      Once there, you will need to begin your training.
      You will learn how to stirfry frozen vegetable packs, and thin cuts of meat to turn the noodles into full rounded meals for 2 for under $5.
      As someone who has studied the way of the ramen for decades; I can assure you… Your journey is just beginning….

      •  

        Very well summarised, I won't be surprised if you say that you have authored some novels too..

      • +1 vote

        You can stirfry the frozen vegetables, but can you mix the raw egg through so it coats the noodles evenly. That is the mark of the true ramen master.

      but the company is Nissin - the original creator of instant Noodle and it's a Japanese company. Quality isn't really an issue here :)

      •  

        Depends. I've had Nissin that were made in mlaysia and they were great. I had ones made in hong kong and they were garbage.

    not work on Coles online for that price, not sure about other local stores

  •  

    Great deal !!! I love those, far better than other instant noodles you can get. Recommend adding a bit of milk so broth tastes richer. Hope this is nationwide…

    • +5 votes

      Instead of milk, I recommend a spoonful of kewpie mayo. You will get the milky/creamy effect plus kewpie umami goodness.

      • +3 votes

        I personally use the Wasabi Kewpie mayo.
        My opponents are yet to reach the level of umami I can offer from a simple noode dish.
        Order Up!

        •  

          Is the wasabi mayo good? It worth getting the Kewpie wasabi mayo as opposed to making your own by mixing some wasabi into the Kewpie mayo? I was curious about it, I just didn't know if I liked wasabi enough to have a whole mayo based around it on the ready. What else do you use it for?

          • +1 vote

            @ceebee: Its good, because it tastes exactly like wasabi, but only has about 50% of the potency of the burn.
            Flavour wise, I always want to eat entire spoons of wasabi; but my sinuses like to reject that idea :P
            This allows me to have a nose-opening experience with every bite, a strong wasabi flavour, but not be in actual pain.

            I often use it on cheese sandwiches, as a dip for tempura, I use it a lot on Okonomikai or Tomagoyaki.

  •  

    Got several 5x pack of the Nissin Pork a while back for 10 cents each and while I love the 100g serving size I'm a little disappointed in the quality of the noodle - I'm assuming this is the same noodle cake?

    •  

      I think these are two different series so the noodles may be different. But yes I agree with your evaluation for that particular one, I feel like the texture of the noodle isn’t that great.

      •  

        Yeah I can disguise the texture a bit in a stir-fry etc but I feel with the reputation and positive reviews they have I shouldn't have to and it must be two separate lines although that brings up a question of why?

        •  

          They are different. I personally prefer the original nissin (the one you linked) to this one but I grew up with it, so yeah :)

          • +8 votes

            @rainbowbutterfly: I also grew up on the original Nissin stuff. The key to better texture is after boiling the noodles, to then blanch the noodles in cold water and give them a quick rinse, getting rid of the old water. Use fresh boiled water to mix the flavourings/msg soup and then add back in the noodles.

            • +1 vote

              @ARX-8 Laevatein: That is how noodles are traditionally cooked in hawker style stores.

            • +2 votes

              @ARX-8 Laevatein: The technique I often use is you need to lift the noodles out of the boiling pot ( for few secs) constantly to cool/heat the noodles. Probably do that after a minute or so it's been boiling .It leads to noodles with a better "curl" and firmer texture.

              You can see cooks doing this in Asian at cafes/eateries if they have instant ramen in their menu

              @ARX-8 Laevatein: Can confirm the noodles vastly improved when I tried this method ^

      There are 2 types of noodle, the 'block' and the 'circle'.
      These are the circle style, they're thicker, and are arguably better than the 'block'.

      Those are the total budget model noodles. These ones are premium

    That's clearly the "per packet" price.

      It's not per single packet. It's 5 in a packet price..

    what if you grab 10 packs and start scanning and the price is the regular one, you would look like a fool at the checkout, cancelling it. hahahaha

    Does anyone know what Nissin are like with their palm oil? Ethically sourced or nah? Can only see on the ingredients that it's in it.

  •  

    At this price I would use the ramen as toilet paper!

  •  

    my brain has blown a fuse. this looks so cheap but… from the other nissin ramen posts, an excellent price is under a $1 per pack.
    OP's post is $1.49 per pack.. x4 in a big pack gives you $5.96.
    is it really a deal? what did i miss? cogs aren't turning :/

    • +2 votes

      $1.49 for the 5 pack, so 30 cents each, but the catch is that there are none available….

      •  

        aha i see it now, OP bought 4 lots of the 5 pack. thanks :)

  •  

    Is it grouped with the other instant noodles, or is it in another section, such as the Asian specific zone? Can't find it……

    •  

      At my local it is in the Asian section, not in the instant noodle section

      •  

        ok thanks, and was it $1.49?

        •  

          I wasnt able to go until after posting. My local was 10% off. Scanned at that price

  •  

    Is this all of nsw or just 1 store?

    •  

      My local in NSW was only 10% scanned price

      •  

        ahh so it's only that one store that scanned at $1.49

  •  

    This works so well with that ramen hack where you mix the seasoning packet with kewpie mayo, fresh garlic, a beaten egg and mix well. Make the noodles separately and then pour hot water and noodles back into wet mix and it’s chefs kiss.

    •  

      yeah yeah i know, but it's not actually $1.49 at coles is it

      •  

        Mate, I have no clue. Simply sharing a tip here lol

        •  

          ok ok

  •  

    This is only at that one single store, not every single store nationwide.

  •  

    Tastes good and crazy price. The Hokkaido Miso though is the only one I buy from those flavours. Quite tasty!

    •  

      ….if only you could actually buy it for $1.49

      •  

        Yes that would be good. I'm sure it'll hit that price as well at some stage. But I'm willing to pay the little extra more to get the miso version. Kyushu is good but theres something…something not right about it that bugs me every time I eat it.

  •  

    i will bitz 100 packs

    •  

      you can't because you can't get it hahahahahaha
