Annie Chun’s – Products Worth Reviewing

Imagine you’re at home and your kids are screaming that they are HUNGRY but you don’t have anything quick to serve them. Uh-oh, what’s a mom to do? Well, should you reach into your pantry to give them something greasy and unhealthy or should you give them something that’s convenient to make and delicious and nutritious as well? But what, you may ask? The next time you’re stuck in what to make quickly and conveniently, give Annie Chun’s a try. Annie Chun’s sounds like an action figure or a famous actress, right? If it indeed sounds familiar to you, that’s because Annie Chun’s products come in a delectable array of easy-to-prepare foods.

The folks at Annie Chun’s have been making natural, gourmet, Pan-Asian foods for 20 years and are still coming up with delicious, nutritious, and convenient meal solutions for families throughout the nation. Their products include varieties such as Noodle Bowls, Soup Bowls, Asian Meal Starters, Gourmet Sauces, Frozen Potstickers, and many more. We particularly enjoy their Seaweed Snacks as they are individual slices of yummy, healthy seaweed that’s great to eat as is or crumbled over rice and other dishes. Our house is always packed with Annie Chun’s products and I’ve used their Gourmet Sauces in many of my Asian food recipes. Their Gourmet Sauces include blends such as Kung Pao Sauce, Pad Thai Sauce, Shiitake Soy Ginger Sauce (our favorite!), Teriyaki Sauce and a few others. Their Gourmet Sauces have all the ingredients you’ll need to make a complete dish and all with natural ingredients and no preservatives. Annie Chun’s recently added their Frozen Potstickers and Mini Wontons to their delicious lineup of products so if your hungry kids are bugging you for something delicious and quick, then try Annie Chun’s Frozen Potstickers and Mini Wontons. You can also dip them in one of Annie Chun’s yummy Gourmet Sauces for additional flavor and satisfaction.

Annie Chun’s began with the mindset that eating Asian foods doesn’t necessarily require hours of preperation and cooking. Although Asian foods are usually known to be healthy and delicious, sometimes it can be time consuming to prep the ingredients and cook them. With Annie Chun’s, they’ve made most of the prepping and cooking already so all you have to is heat them up, eat them as is, or stir-fry them with a few simple ingredients such as veggies, tofu, or meat. And most of Annie Chun’s products are great to take along to work, school, or an outdoor picnic, or even served at fancy parties. I keep a couple of bottles of their Gourmet Sauces by my stove and we’ve stashed an assortment of their Seaweed Snacks, Noodle Bowls, Soup Bowls, and Asian Meal Starters in our pantry. Whenever I’m too tired to cook or need a quick inspiration for a healthy and delicious Asian meal, I usually turn to Annie Chun’s for help. After all, who wants to slave in a kitchen all day when I’d rather be spending extra time with my family. With Annie Chun’s products, you can achieve both healthy and delicious foods and not have to spend hours cooking them.

But what we love most about Annie Chun’s is their use of high-quality, natural ingredients that tastes like it’s homemade. When I first discovered Annie Chun’s at my local natural grocery store, the packaging looked interesting with it’s colorful and scrumptious-looking dishes. But what really drew my attention was reading the labels. The ingredients were familiar ingredients like ginger, garlic, soysauce, and sesame oil and there were no added preservatives or MSG. So I picked up a box of their noodle soups and decided to give it a try. I have to say though, my first experience with the noodle soup wasn’t a good one. I microwaved it per the instructions but the noodles turned out too chewy and the soup wasn’t hot enough. But it was still flavorful, so the next time I decided to give another noodle soup bowl a try. The second time however turned out to be successful. The noodles were soft and dense and the soup was piping hot. I realized I must have read the instructions wrong or not fully because the noodle soup bowl was very satisfying and filling. After that, I became hooked on Annie Chun’s products and use them constantly.

I was super delighted when Annie Chun’s wanted me to try some of their most popular items. The products they sent me were their Garlic Scallion Noodle Bowl, Kung Pao Noodle Bowl, Teriyaki Noodle Bowl, Classic Stir Fry Sauce, Shiitake Soy Ginger Sauce, Teriyaki Sauce, Maifun Brown Rice Noodles, and Pad Thai Rice Noodles. It was incredible having to try all of them and with their Gourmet Sauces and Rice Noodles, it was fairly simple to put together a healthy and hearty meal for me and my family. All I had to do was add a few chopped vegetables and shrimp (for my son and husband) and we were completely satisfied with the noodle dish.
