Annie Chun’s Spicy Szechuan Noodle Express, 7.4-Ounce Bowls

A classic Chinese fusion of salty, sweet, sour, and spicy flavors over our delicious, soft ramen noodles. Tangy tomato with premium Gochujang red pepper and a hint of ginger make this unique dish a memorable meal. Low-sodium soy sauce keeps the flavors healthy and balanced. Spicy Szechuan noodles are delicious by themselves, or with a handful of veggies like shredded carrots and bean sprouts. Try adding a handful of cooked shrimp, chicken or tofu. FreshPak Noodles authentic gourmet noodles are a culinary departure from the deep fried variety found in college dorm rooms. They’re prepared in the traditional style of Asian cuisine – steamed and blanched for a firm and flavorful texture that blends beautifully with my signature sauces. Once you try these delicate, FreshPak noodles, you’ll never settle for dry noodles again. This meal comes to you in a biodegradable tray that decomposes in the soil with no harm to the earth. It’s better for the planet and one small way we can care for our environment together.

Quick and delicious

I found this VERY delicious – to me it tasted like a good dish at a Chinese restaurant – spicy and flavorful. My only caution is that the box is TWO servings, not one, so the calories aren’t a nice, low 170 – it’s 340 if you eat the whole thing (which is VERY easy to do). I don’t know if it should have been named ‘Spicy Szechuan’ because the paste included is actually made from a Korean dish – gochujang red chili paste – but I found this VERY tasty!
Pros: made in USA, natural ingredients, no MSG or preservatives
Cons: 2 servings as packaged so 340 calories, 58g carbs and 38% of daily sodium.

Not as good as other Annie Chun Items

I have ordered Annie Chun items before to take to work for lunch and they were all pretty good. This item however was VERY salty and the sauce had an odd taste. I ended up throwing the other five packages away because no one in the house would eat them.

disappointing product from a great company

I like a lot of products from Annie Chun’s and their noodle bowls are convenient for that quick lunchtime meal. However, this particular one tasted like the 25 cent noodle packs you bought back in college with a bunch of flavoring thrown in. The sauce was not very good either. After so many great products this one seriously disappoints. (I should say disappointed me because everyone’s taste buds are different.)

Do not recommend AT ALL

I bought a couple of these at Whole Foods, couldn’t finish the first one, and threw away the second. They do not even resemble food. Ramen kicks their butt. Absolutely disgusting. Ew. Gross. Don’t waste your money the way I did!

quick and tasty

Heat up very quickly and taste great. I like to add chicken to it. Nice for at work.

Love Annie Chun’s, this was not my favorite

I didn’t like the taste or texture. I’m a big Annie Chun’s noodle fan – I was not a fan of this product.

Spectacularly Awful

I can’t believe how bad this stuff was. I opened the noodle package and it smelled stale and awful. The dehydrated vegetables didn’t hydrate in the microwave time (I even added more time), and so I was crunching on them while trying to eat the noodles. It was not a good crunch. The saving grace was the szechuan sauce, which was good, but not good enough to cover the bad. I’d rather have Cup Noodles than this stuff.

Annie Chun’s noodles best on the market

benefits from buying this brand: made in USA, all natural ingredients, cooks in 1 minute, many varieties of flavors to choose from. Even the cooking bowl is bio-degradable, so doesn’t harm the environment.

highly recommend Annie Chun’s brand of noodles. Taste great, many flavors to choose from. Can’t go wrong with this brand.

makes a great lunch or a quick meal when you are in a hurry if running late for an appointment…

Cheap, fast cooking, non refrigerated, and tasty. Got it while on sale and great price with the additional discount. What’s not to like about this dish? AND it comes in a nice reusable plastic container.

Love these noodles

I make these noodles with tofu and veggies.
First thing to do is to drain extra firm tofu and wrap it in paper towels and putting a heavy pot or can on top of the block of tofu for about 15 min.
Second thing to do is to heat up enough frying oil in a saute pan and toss chopped tofor in nutritional yeast. Then when oil is hot adding the tofu in one layer and letting it fry for about 5 minutes at high heat or until golden brown and then flipping it over so it can get nice and golden brown all over.
In the meantime, add sesame seed oil, soy sauce and thai sweet chili sauce into container with lid so u can toss tofu when is finished being fried.
Now u use stir fry veggies (i get mine at costco) and u saute them along with the noodles in a big pot with a bit of peanut oil or whatever soem oil u like to use for about 3 minutes and then add the noodle sauce and topping.
When tofu is ready u put it in container with lid and shake it until is coated. Now add tofu to veggies and noodles and toss. Add scallions and sesame seeds and enjoy!

A Bit Dry

I got these for convenience, and because it has no MSG. I found after following the directions the noodles weren’t done enough for my taste. I added 1/4 cup of water, 2 T of olive oil and a tablespoon of tahini. I then cooked it on high in my 600-watt microwave for 2 more minutes, all the water absorbed, and it was just right. I think next time I won’t use quite all the sauce as it seemed a little overpowering.

I thought it made a nice full serving for lunch or a quick snack. With the amendments, this is a product I will buy again. I like the fact that the packaging is all biodegradable.

This dish tastes great and I love the spiciness! I only wish there was a little more because I’m still hungry afterward.

Was hoping this would taste good but I would of actually preferred those cheap top ramen packages over this!(which I hate)
Very over-powering flavor that tasted nothing like anything out of any good Asian restaurant.
Couldn’t even take more than one bite before tossing it. Lesson learned to just go out to eat from now on when I’m craving Asian cuisine.
