I was shopping at Daiso when I came across one of my favorite snacks, Baby Star. I grew up eating the mini packages of the little crispy ramen noodles. This one in particular was bunched up in a shape of a circle. Since I'm usually used to seeing it in individual form, I thought this was another fun way to eat it.
Potatoes are great, and instead of ramen flavored, this was potato flavored. I had to get it, because, well who doesn't love potatoes? I am not quite sure what "Usushio aji" (うすしお味) means though. When put into Google Translate, it translated to "sushi taste", but why pictures of potatoes then? I guess I had to try and see for myself.
The small circle bites did not taste anything like sushi, and definitely more like a potato. I really enjoyed how the noodles are bunched in a small circle, it does make it easier than eating the individual noodles in the usual packaging. You get more from just a bite. I am hoping they make these in bigger bags (unless they already do) and also in different flavors as well. I did enjoy the potato flavor, maybe even more than their usual chicken ramen flavor since it is not as salty. You should definitely check them out and if you see them in a bigger package, please let me know!!
