Nong Shim is a global food manufacturing company, based in Korea (the good guy side) with products in over 183 countries today. They produce a variety of noodle bowls, like udon, as well as snacks, like shrimp crackers. Some of their products have been in the US market for well over three decades and today they even have a state of the art facility in California. They say that they are ”committed to being a game changer in the convenient food industry: the next Samsung of the instant noodle business.”
Nong Shim items have been in Costco for many years in limited locations in multiple regions. However, this year they have gained quite a bit of momentum where they have expanded in selected full regions. They’ve also done a couple of roadshows, so you might shop at one of the lucky Costco’s where you could sample their noodles.
Today’s post is about the expansion of Nong Shim products to new stores. Nong Shim Japanese Style Udon Bowls, Item#125376, will now be available in more Costco locations. This really makes me jealous because I love udon noodles. And I know last time there was some debate about the salt content and such in the traditional noodle bowls, but the Udon bowls seem a bit better. They have no added MSG, 0 trans fats, and I believe they have less sodium at 740 grams per serving. I think, as someone else suggested, the way to avoid the sodium is to add your own seasonings and skip the little included packets, or only add part of the packet. These are a great, quick lunch option since they are ready to eat in just three little minutes. So, here are all the details on where you can now find the Nong Shim Udon noodles, and there’s also an instant rebate in the Midwest Region.
- Midwest Region is having $3.25 Instant Rebate Coupon. Six bowls for only $9.49. Valid now to September 26.
- You can now find this item in all Texas Costco, some Los Angeles locations and Hawaii.
