16. Lucky Me! Instant Pancit Canton – Kalamansi Flavour

This is the last packet of Lucky Me! sent by my friends from Dubai, thank you again Suri and Punica! I am ready to receive more packets now!

“Pancit Canton” means stir-fried noodles in Filipino and “Kalamansi” is a citrus fruit that’s ubiquitous in the Philippines!

Lucky Me! is the undisputed no. 1 instant noodle brand in the Philippines with a wide array of innovative and flavorful noodle varieties (according to their website). Launched in 1989, Lucky Me! has since grown into a household brand enjoyed by almost every Filipino family.

Again a tiny packet weighing just 60g against the standard 70-80g packs.

Cooking instructions as on the pack – cook noodles in briskly boiling water for 3 minutes. Mix Special seasoning, soy sauce and oil on a plate to form a paste. Drain noodles and place on the plate with the prepared sauce. Mix well. Enjoy!

 Cute little noodle block.

Each sachet comes with a message –

  1. The sauce pouch reads – Due to temperature changes, sauce may have crystal-like salt particles which will melt in freshly cooked noodles.
  2. And the special seasoning sachet says – Seasoning may harden but dissolves when mixed with soy sauce and oil. Quality and taste remains the same.

  1. A very thin soy sauce.
  2. Seasoning oil which is coconut oil basically.
  3. Special seasoning powder which contains traces of cane sugar, chicken flavour, dehydrate veggies like carrots and chives and lastly and obviously – citrus flavour enhancers. And this has an extremely strong citrusy aroma!

I wasn’t too sold on lemon flavored instant noodles but I wasn’t too skeptical either because I liked the last two Lucky Me! flavors I tried.

However, this is a disaster. Should have known after smelling the seasoning! Way too citrusy and no other flavor at all.

Even the soy sauce was too thin to give it a good color. So here are bland looking noodles that taste like they have been drowned in lemon juice.

For once I am glad that a noodle pack was smaller than standard packs. Hate wasting noods.
