I got my Miracle Noodles in the mail today and immediately tried them. And, as I promised I would, here is a review of them from package to mouth (without pictures… because I was too busy stuffing my face to get my phone.)
- Package does not require refrigeration, but does have an expiration date (mine are set to expire in December.)
- Noodles are opalescent and translucent. Packaged in water.
- Upon opening, they gave off a fishy smell (you can’t deter me, noodles, I used to be a sailor…)
- Rinsed noodles for 30-ish seconds in warm running water and the smell was gone.
- While rinsing, there was no degradation or flaking of the noodles from the pressure of the water.
- I nommed a few noodles before mixing with food. They are mostly noodley. They have a texture to them that is slightly different than a pasta or rice noodle. It has a … resistance to it when you bite down. An inkling of a snap-back. Personally, I liked it. A lot.
- Unlike pasta noodles, these will NOT dry off very well on their own. They hold water like nobody’s business and they need to be dried before used for mixing or cooking. A heavy paper towel or a bread towel will work perfect. Don’t worry about putting them in a towel, they are very resilient noodles and won’t fall apart or ruin your towel.
- They are incredibly filling. No. Really. I ate a package because a package looks so small. So very tiny. Itty bitty package. Single serving sized package. WRONG! Ugh. I’m suffering for it now. Calories or no, my tummy is FULL! Oops. I learned. Half a package next time!
I must admit, all-in-all, they are a great purchase for those looking for a food with zero nutritional value.
