When I was in the local grocery last week I noticed a new flavor of my favorite Lucky Me Pancit Canton, the Sweet and Spicy. Curious, I bought three as the one does not really satisfy my craving for quickly prepared Pancit Canton.
I opened the plastic wrapper, it had the usual curly dried noodles and two sachets, one has the soy sauce and the oil and the other has the seasoning/flavoring. The soy sauce though was different from the usual as it was thicker than the usual. I think the sweetness or the sugar was mixed in the soy sauce.
I boiled water and poured on the dried noodles. Usually, I do not follow the guidelines for the boiling of dry noodles as I like my noodles a bit hardy or not well done. So after some minutes I took it out, strained the water, placed the noodles on a plate and by biting on the sachets, poured the contents messily on the noodles. Then I mixed it until the color of the noodles becomes an even shiny dark yellow.
The smell was great as it could transmit the spicyness of the pancit canton and making me hungry.
I tasted it and it was a little spicy than the Lucky Me Pancit Canton Spicy flavor, but I could not taste the sweetness of the flavor. Still it was a great snack.
Compared to the ChiliMansi flavor I will still go for the ChiliMansi flavor unless I’m really in the mood for something that has a hint of chili.
