This thing tastes so good! It has a natural caramel flavor and is much healthier when you compare it to cane sugar. It's very versatile also and I've found that I use less of this when compared to using cane sugar ...read more

My family loves almost all of the Thai Kitchen products. This, though? Seriously! I stock this in bulk in my pantry. My five-year-old thinks these noodles are the best thing in the world. It's the only thing she will eat when she's going through a picky stage. And it's perfect for us.

These noodles are really easy to mix when adding sauces or veggies, etc.. Easy to cook with when making stir fry. They don't get "gummy" like some. I nearly took off a star for being more fattening than the real deal procured from our local Thai grocery. But then realized that these noodles may not be as good if they're less calorie heavy. But it should be noted. Now, I'm off to get fat from a load of these bad boys. Get you some ...read more
