“Simply Asia” bought out “A Taste Of Asia” prior to 2006. Since then the product has been morphing into HIGH fat, HIGH salt, less fiber, and less ‘real’ ingredients.
Here are the stat’s from the back of 3 ‘period’ boxes:
Original product that I came to love: Total Fat .5g, Sodium 395mg, d.Fiber 3.5g., sugars 8g(along with only:palm sugar, tamarind juice, soy sauce((soy, salt, sugar)), shallot, pickled radish, garlic, soybean oil, salt, chili powder).
2006 new mfg. box: Total Fat 1g, Sodium 720 mg, d. Fiber 2g, Sugars 20g.,
2008 box: Total Fat 3.5g, Sodium 1010mg, d. Fiber 1g, Sugars 20g.,
SO WE NOW HAVE 7X THE FAT, OVER 2.5X THE SALT, 2.5X SUGAR & ONLY ABOUT 1/4 THE FIBER.
I will no longer buy this product, and will choose noodles and a ethnic jar sauce separately. Even if you don’t have a prolbem eating higher salt, fat, and sugar, please know that they are tools used to stimulate your appetite, which drives up obesity in the long run, and may not be just added to save the mfg. money. It’s a double-win for them.
You have heard the expression “Restaurant Quality”. These are definitely not. Pad Thai is usually hotter than these, the noodles are not up to par. definitely a disappointment. I donated all but the first 2 boxes (I tried it 2x to be sure I did not cook it wrong)to a local food bank. Although I hated it, I’m sure someone needing food would find it edible.
If you are expecting it to compare with a Thai restaurant you are in for a HUGE disappointment
AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL
I love restaurant quality Thai. *Love it.* I made this stuff and almost gagged at the smell. It smells like what I would expect boiled dry dog food to smell like. We made it with chicken and I was determined to try to gag it down to not waste the chicken. I couldn’t do it. I tried putting Thai sauce on it, soy sauce on it – anything. Nothing could hide the smell and stale musty flavor.
Save your money and your senses and avoid!
First I soak the rice noodles in hot water. I then cook sliced, boneless chicken and a few large shrimp in wok on high heat – take them out. Add a bit more oil to the wok and add garlic, sliced onion and julienne carrots. Quickly stir fry on high and make a well in the center and add 4 eggs, stir until cooked. Then add the soaked noodles and meats back to the pan and add the sauce packet – I also add a splash of fish sauce. Heat through and add sliced Napa cabbage and bean sprouts and stir. Finish off with diced green (spring) onions.
I love to add Annie Chun’s Go-Chu-Jang, Korean Sweet & Spicy Sauce, 10-Ounce Bottles (Pack of 6) on top of a lot of my Asian dishes.
It’s pretty good eatin’.
This package contains rice noodles & a flavoring pack, so you need to add your own cooking oil & (if you wish) egg, chicken or shrimp or vegetables or tofu & possibly lime, chilli, cilantro. So, it’s authentic as far as it goes but…I’ve been to Thailand 4 times & I think this product is pretty good, but I’m not a purist. So, I often add some salmon, mushrooms, mixed veggies, or whatever else I happen to have handy. The sauce is pretty strong so you can add a fair amount of things without demeaning the overall flavor of the dish. It doesn’t take long to make either. I try to save washing so I use a big pot & a collander, not a frying pan or wok. This dish is tasty but NOT spicy hot–like many other Thai foods–unless you add your own peppers. Thai Kitchen makes other flavors too. Enjoy!
I love all the Thai Kitchen products but the Pad Thai noodles are the best because it is a great meal that you can put together in 15 minutes. You can add pretty much anything you like and it turns out great.
This pad thai was a soggy, mealy mess, with no flavor at all. Perhaps the worst food-out-of-a-box I have ever eaten. I have to wonder if the Thai Kitchen company samples its own products before selling them. They must not.
