Just tried one of these, a new product I just saw for the first time today at Wasserman's, a relatively small grocery store on Main Street, and I have to say, I was fairly impressed. I ate it at home, but it would be great for travelling or to bring to work, if you have access to a microwave that you can use. I'm pretty sure the treif world has had this type of stuff for ages, but it's a new addition to the kosher world.
I had the Spicy Kung Pao flavor. It's a plastic bowl with four packets in it (or at least the flavor I chose): a package of pre-cooked noodles, a packet of sauce, a small packet of dehydrated vegetables (like for soup), and a smaller packet of chopped peanuts. You add an ounce of water to the noodles in the bowl and add the veggies. Microwave for two minutes, add sauce and peanuts, and you have a really decent lunch. I saw two other flavors, but went to their website, and they have five flavors in all. They have a symbol on the package saying this flavor is four out of five hot peppers, but those five peppers must be Jewish! In other words, it's really not that spicy, but we all know how timid many Jews are about flavors and spiciness (see thread on Shalom Bombay, for ex.) I definitely plan to try at least a couple of the other flavors.
it's OU, bishul yisroel, and for those who care, vegan.
By the way, I have no connection whatsoever to the company or anyone selling it; I was just impressed that it wasn't real drek.
