Can of Campbell's Spaghettios
Bowl of Campbell's Spaghettios

I was craving something easy to make that was soupy and tomatoey, so when I went to the grocery store I decided to try the SpaghettiOs that I saw. I thought I remembered disliking the meatballs in the normal kind (although I haven't had SpaghettiOs in years), so I tried the ones with sliced Franks.

I warmed the SpaghettiOs in the microwave, and overall, it tasted OK, as it halted my craving for something soupy and tomatoey. The tomato sauce was kind of sweet & watery, but it didn't taste that bad. The O's (pasta) were very soft, as expected, and they were OK, as well. However, I did not like the franks at all. The franks didn't really taste like anything and were just chewy discs that didn't belong. I ended up not even being able to eat the franks and threw them away.

Box of Tiger Thai Udon Noodles
Tiger Thai Udon Noodles Components

I had some Tiger Thai Udon noodles from Costco as a snack.

Tiger Thai Udon Noodle Soup

The texture of the noodles was good, and they had the usual slippery and thick texture.

The soup was OK, and it tasted a little bit like fish sauce, but it was not great. I did not like the tempura shrimp crumbles in the soup at all. The next time I have some, I will definitely not put them in the soup. One thing I did like was the different little packets that everything comes in.

Myojo Packaged Udon Noodles
Myojo Udon Noodles

I tried some packaged Myojo Udon noodles.

The texture of the udon noodles was pretty good. It was thick and slippery, as expected.

The chicken soup base came in a small packet, like the ones in typical ramen noodle packages. The soup tasted like a less strong version of Campbell's chicken noodle soup, which I didn't really like.
