Annie Chun Product Review

I was recently given the opportunity to try some amazing products from Annie Chun all natural Asian cuisine. Before I go into my review here is some information about Annie Chun (from website):

Annie Chun founded the company in 1992 with the dream of creating healthy, delicious Asian foods that would introduce America to the diversity of Asian foods and flavors.

Since those early days, the company has grown to become the leading producer of all-natural, gourmet Pan-Asian food in the United States. Today, Annie Chun’s continues to provide consumers with simple, convenient meal solutions through innovative product offerings and unique flavor profiles that unlock a sense of worldliness with every bite.

In 2005, Annie Chun’s forged a strategic partnership with CJ Corp., Korea’s largest food producer, strengthening the company’s commitment to creating all natural, great tasting products that promote good health and further the company’s goal of introducing new and exciting Asian foods to the American consumer. The complete line of innovative, premium goods provides a variety of options such as vegetarian, organic and gluten-free to adapt to dietary restrictions or preferences.

Annie Chun’s products can now be found at most major supermarkets and natural foods stores, Whole Foods, Target, Wal-mart, and Trader Joe’s as well as in select Canadian chains.

Roasted Sesame Seaweed Snacks:

 Growing up a “military brat” my family was stationed in Japan for several years and I remember when i first tried seaweed from my 1st grade  teacher who brought some in. I loved it! The flavor definitely took me back. My kids did not care for the taste but my husband liked it. “Korean seaweed is roasted to perfection and then seasoned with a dash of salt and sesame seed oil, creating a savory taste sensation that promises to excite your palate”. These snacks are really light they are about 2×1 inch sheet and virtually see-through but packed full of flavor. Having only 30 calories and 2.5 grams of fat they are surprisingly filling.

Cost:

1 Pack, 0.35 oz:  $1.69 or 12 Pack, 0.35 oz: $19.27

Shiitake Soy Ginger Sauce 

“Light and savory, this delicious blend of hearty shiitake mushrooms and low sodium soy sauce is full-bodied and incredibly versatile without any fat.  Great with fish and tofu. ” We made it with Tilapia and it was delicious!

Cost:

1 Pack, 9.7 oz:  $4.69

This weekend my mom is coming over for dinner and I am going to use the recipe I found on the Annie Chun website for Baked Fish with Soy Ginger Sauce.

 

A simple, fast, and delicious fish recipe. A great recipe to quickly add flavor and zip to your favorite fish.  Couldn’t be easier and sure to please the palate. Also really great for the waistline!

  • ½ cup Annie Chun’s Shiitake Soy Ginger Sauce

  2. Rinse and dry fish.
  3. Place fish in a baking dish and top with sauce and scallions.
  4. Cover and bake for about 10 minutes or until fish is cooked.
  5. Garnish with lemon wedges.
  6. Serve with rice and some of your favorite veggies.

I am really excited to see how it turns out!
Miso Soup Bowl and Pad Thai Noodle Bowl
Since I have been fighting a cold since this past weekend I was happy to get my hands on the Miso Soup bowl. I loved the bits of tofu, scallions and spinach that took the classic noddle soup and made it into an amazing meal. I myself did not try the noodle bowl, my husband took it to work with him and he was definitely envied in the break room, he topped it with some of the left over shrimp and loved it. He wants to try some of the other flavors they offer which can be found in Annie Chun’s online store.
Cost:
Miso Soup- 1 Pack, 5.4 oz:  $3.49  or 6 Pack, 5.4 oz: $17.34
Pad  Thai- 1 Pack, 9.1 oz:  $3.49 or 6 Pack, 9.1 oz: $17.34

“Our delicate, appealingly tender Maifun (angel hair) rice noodles are fantastic any way you serve them in soups, stir-fries or cold salads. You can toss them with any of our Annie Chun’s Sauces to make a quick, satisfying hot or cold meal in less than five minutes.” Now I have always been a big fan of the Angel Hair pasta and Maifun is no exception. However, I did find it to be a little thinner then regular Angel Hair pasta. I paired this with a vegetable stir fry and added some of the Shiitake Soy Ginger Sauce and it was really good.

Cost:

  • 1 Pack, 8 oz:  $3.39
  • 6 Pack, 8 oz: $19.32

All in all after trying the items above I am hooked.
