    Just put the shin black into my cart at superstore for tomorrow. Will report back.
    I hate how superstore only carries the cups. If you end up liking it and prefer the stovetop packs, Walmart is the best place to buy them. I think it’s 7.99 for a pack of 4 stovetop packages

    Superstore got a little excited and in addition to the cup of Shin black, they gave me a 16-packet case of the Shin regular. I really just wanted to try it out. Taking it back seems like a hassle.

    Idk what superstore you shop at, but I buy 4-packs of shin black stovetop there on a regular basis at Signal Hill SS. It's not cheap, like $10 for 4 I think, but it's definitely there.

    Yeah you’re right, I noticed a few days ago that they sell these now at SS. 8.99 a pack of 4. I swear they didn’t back in March/April when pandemic started (or maybe just at Huntington hills) as I was hunting pretty hard for them to eat for lunch.

    Shin Black ftw. God I love that stuff. It's just the right spicy and that creamy broth is the shit.

    It's dependant on the Superstore location, for instance ours in Methbridge only carried the cups for the longest time of the blacks. Finding the 4packs was impossible during the beginning of the pandemic too, believe me I tried, lol.

    It’s actually a bit less spicy IMO. It has an extra broth packet and the veggie packet is better. It’s in another league entirely.

    I tried Shin Ramen again after years and noticed the noodles are a bit off, but broth is still good. But the noodles were off enough it ruined my nostalgia for it. Black tastes very similar to red with differences that don't make the premium worth it IMO.

    Then I started looking into it a bit more and a lot of the noodles are made in Nongshim America. If you go to T&T, one batch is Nongshim America, and another is Nongshim China (Shanghai?). I need to go to a Korean store and see if I can find one from Korea to compare. If you know me, I been going nuts over the last decade on Nongshim changing their noodles in the Bowl Noodles and I knew they tasted different vs. When I was a kid.

    Then I just stumbled upon this website today and it made me feel less crazy. I'm not the only one... phew.

    Coles notes: Look at the back of the Nongshim package and try the one from Korea vs. Nongshim America. Korean Black Nongshim should be better too but I never tried any.

    That settles it, we need to find Korean Shin Black to taste test.
    I can eat more hot wings than you.

    The korean store doesn't even sell Korean Shin Black.

    But I spent $6.99 today on 4 packs of korean red.

    Side by side compare between USA and Korea pack. Looks the same minus some instruction info pictures...

    Will cook both the same without any add-ins and see if I taste a difference. Not today though, I ate too much already...

    Test Day:
    20210117_115328.jpg
    Dehydrated veggies looked the same. Couldn't tell a difference.

    20210117_115418.jpg
    Seasoning pack looked similar too with maybe one with slightly more tinge of red to it.

    20210117_115538.jpg
    Noodles in.

    20210117_115830.jpg
    Noodles out.

    20210117_120213.jpg
    Soup base compare.

    Verdict:
    Left bowl was Korea.
    Right bowl was America.

    Korea version is slightly more sweet, slightly less salty and surprisingly less spicy.

    America version is slightly more red in color, slightly saltier, surprisingly more spicy and doesn't have that hint of sweetness. I prefer the cheaper American one as it had more of that umami flavor. Wasted money on the Korean one haha.

    I don’t want to start a new thread, this is probably as good a place as any - who has recommendations for brands of precooked udon noodles? And places to find them in SW Calgary.

    My wife couldn’t find any at superstore tonight which kind of surprised me, so hoping to get some recs and save us driving from store to store. Not that it makes a difference, but our plan is to make a stir fry with them.

    Tia.
