Craving a taste of Thailand but short on time and resources? No worries mamshie. I gotchu! Because I’m sharing with you my latest discovery — Yum Yum® Tom Yum Shrimp Creamy instant noodles! This convenient cup of goodness promises to transport your taste buds to the bustling streets of Bangkok, all in a matter of minutes. O bongga diba?

Tom Yum is a fragrant and vibrant broth known for its balance of sour, spicy, and savory flavors. So, does this convenient cup deliver the authentic Thai experience? Let’s find out!

Tom Yum with a Twist

While Ajinomoto offers a classic Tom Yum Shrimp flavor, the Creamy version (which is my favorite) adds a delightful twist. The familiar tangy and spicy notes of Tom Yum are balanced by a rich and creamy broth, creating a complex and satisfying flavor profile. This creamy element makes the noodles extra comforting, perfect for a cozy night in or a quick lunch break pick-me-up.

Unboxing the Creamy Tom Yum

The packaging is eye-catching, boasting a bright orange background with pictures of plump shrimp and enticing noodles. It clearly states the flavor: “Tom Yum Shrimp Creamy,” which lets you know exactly what you’re in for. Inside the cup, you’ll find the usual instant noodle suspects: the noodle block, dehydrated vegetables and shrimp, a powder sachet soup base, and a paste sachet containing the spices .

The preparation is as simple as any instant noodle. Just pop open the lid, add the seasoning packets, pour boiling water to the fill line, and wait for 3 magical minutes. The key here is to be patient – those 3 minutes allow the flavors to develop and the noodles to cook perfectly.

As soon as you lift the lid after those 3 minutes, a wave of enticing aroma hits you. It’s a lovely blend of lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, and a touch of shrimpy goodness. The first sip is a flavor explosion! The creamy broth is surprisingly rich and satisfying, with a pleasant tang that lingers on the tongue. The spice level is mild, making it enjoyable for a wider audience.

The dehydrated vegetables rehydrate well, adding a bit of textural contrast to the smooth noodles. While they might not be the star of the show, they complement the creamy Tom Yum base nicely. I love the rehydrated shrimps too!

The Verdict: A Yum-Worthy Instant Experience

Overall, Tom Yum Shrimp Creamy Yum Yum® Instant Noodles are a delightful and convenient way to enjoy a taste of Thailand. The creamy broth is flavorful and satisfying, capturing the essence of Tom Yum in a quick and easy format.

If you’re looking for a comforting and flavorful instant noodle experience with a touch of Thai flair, then Tom Yum Shrimp Creamy Yum Yum® is definitely worth a try!
