Snack Review: Gom Tang Men


Details: More information can be found at

This was really disappointing. Gom Tang is a Korean soup made from bone broth, like tonkatsu ramen broth. It’s supposed to have an almost creamy mouthfeel, with a very subtle taste. This ramen captures none of that. The noodles were too thin and kind of crap. The broth just tasted like your average, cheapest priced ramen, except that Paldo ramen generally cost more than the cheapest priced stuff. Avoid this.

Score: 4/10


Snack Review: Paldo Jja Jang Men, Chajang Noodle


Details: More information can be found at

This is a damn good choice for Korean style jajang instant noodles. The sauce comes in a liquid package, which tastes better than powdered seasoning, but has the shorter shelf life of one year. The liquid package requires the additional step of dumping out most of the water and adding and cooking the sauce packet afterwards. This also adds to the superior taste over instant noodles that rely on powdered seasoning. They also have substantial sized package of vegetables to mix in. This was great.

Score: 7/10

Soft Drink Review: Paldo Aloe


Details: Official site is Bought a small bottle for around two dollars in New York City.

Paldo Aloe drink is a common aloe drink brand and, if you’ve ever had aloe flavored drinks before, is pretty good.

If I were to try and describe aloe flavor, it just taste like a fruit I guess. There is a lot of sugar in this so expect to be about as sweet as any sweetened drink in America. There are also chunks of either aloe or aloe flavored jelly. I enjoy the jellies.

Overall, it’s a good drink.
