McCormick Noodle and Seasoning Mix: Real Flavors for Real Moments

The noodles has always been a Filipino favorite. Old Filipino movies often have a scene of someone carrying a paper bag or plastic of pansit as pasalubong, and then and now, we Filipinos associate the pansit as our comfort food, the instant kind a staple in most tables during breakfast, or something to serve during study sessions.

It is true, that people love expanding their horizons. Now, we don't just settle for something convenient, we want convenient, delicious... and yes, social media sites worthy. Innovations and fusion between cuisines are aplenty, but for some (like me), the taste of the classic noodle dish is still the best of all.

Taking all of these into consideration, McCormick, the brand synonymous to flavor is now offering a new innovation - the Noodle and Seasoning Mix. These new product, takes away the pressures of cooking, as it already had half of the things needed to create that "instant" noodles with the "authentic" flavor.

Each pack contains noodles and a separate pack for seasoning. All we have to do now is prepare the fresh ingredients as needed, follow the easy steps, and then eat. Or maybe take a picture of it first and share it on social media sites. :)

McCormick Noodle and Seasoning Mix offers five different variants -

Birthday Noodles
Chinese noodle dish usually served during birthdays to represent long life. Usually uses wheat noodles seasoned with savory soy based sauce, with leafy greens, meat, and quail noodles.

Chap Chae
Korean noodle dish using sweet potato noodles, stir fried with beef, mushrooms and leafy greens, and is usually flavored with sesame oil, soy sauce and sugar.

Peranakan noodle soup dish (a combination of Malay and Chinese), that is popular in Malaysia and Singapore. It uses rice noodles, coconut cream, tofu, shrimps, and bean sprouts, and spiced up by sambal paste.

Filipino noodle dish using vermicelli noodles, topped with an orange sauce made from shrimp broth, fish sauce and annatto seeds, garnished with boiled eggs, smoked fish, shrimps, and garlic.

Pad Thai
Thai noodle dish using rice noodles, stir fried in sauce made with tamarind pulp, palm sugar, and fish sauce, and garnished with greens, bean sprouts, shrimps, chicken, peanuts, and chilies.

It really is surprising how something instant could turn out to be a winning dish your family or friends would surely love. Of course, it is recommended you use fresh ingredients, which you can prepare while boiling the noodles, to maximize your time. Each pack serves 4 people, perfect to serve when you have unexpected guests coming over.

Jenn, the Foodie

I come from a family who loves cooking and eating. I never had any formal training in cooking and that I taught myself how to cook based on the handed down recipes, but I could say that I can cook good food. In 2008, I started documenting my food trips for my travel blog, and since I have quite enough to start a food blog, might as well put all those food trips in one location. Thus, a food blog is born - thanks to the new Friendster Blogs. However, due to several problems, I was left with no choice but to pack bags again and move here instead. Here's the permanent address, promise! Enough talk, let the food trippin' begin! {Know More About Me}
