Vegan-friendly Fortune Yakisoba Stir Fry Noodles Review | Hot and Spicy Flavor

Since deciding to eat a vegan diet for the love of animals and for spiritual reasons I cook at home even more. When I am in the grocery store I tend to look for new vegan products to try. This time I saw Fortune noodles in the refrigerator section of my local Ralphs and decided to pick up a few. For lunch, I prepared some Beyond Meat Italian Sausages and had some veggies and decided to add those to the noodles too as recommended on the packaging. I used to enjoy hot and spicy noodles so that's the one I purchased by Fortune. Everything you need is in the packaging, but I recommend that you add your favorite vegetables, etc, to make it your own.

In the video below, I share how I prepared the Fortune noodles and there is a surprise guest who decided to drop in on the kitchen action :D

My Review

  • I liked the texture of these noodles and they retained their consistency after I stir fried them in a pan. The directions give you microwave instructions as well. However, I do not like to use microwaves too often. 
  • The hot and spicy packet of seasoning is intense, so it lived up to the 'hot and spicy,' but it blended well with the noodles and everything I added to it. 

Since preparing these in the video, I have purchased the Fortune Yakisoba Stir Fry Hot and Spicy noodles again and I still love them. They had a fatter noodle with mushrooms I think, but I did not like the fatter noodles so much. There are a number of varieties by Fortune and they appeared to be all vegan-friendly, so give them a try if they are in your local supermarket. 

I give them a 4 out of 5 stars because I can customize them to my liking by adding different vegetables and vegan meat alternatives.

IsaDora Makeup Now at Walgreens in this BzzAgent #Unboxing

BzzAgent invited Selena Thinking Out Loud to the Walgreens-sponsored IsaDora makeup campaign. I received a number of makeup products from the Swedish brand to try and share my makeup look.

In this video, take a look inside the box and learn more about IsaDora's makeup. 

After taking some time to try each of the products, mentioned in the video above, I have discovered some new favorites. My Top 2 are:

#1 - IsaDora Stretch lash mascara (01 Black)
This mascara gives my lashes the length that I like to see without having to wear fake lashes. I applied two coats and my lashes stretch double-time. 

#2 - IsaDora Twist-up Gloss Stick moisturizing lip filler (01 Toffee Pop)
Wow! I didn't know what to expect about this color and the actual lip filler concept, but it is great! It glides on smooth. The tint is lovely for summer and all the seasons. It comes in a twist-up tube, which makes it quick to apply and easier to carry in a purse or your pocket. I will purchase this product again at Walgreens.
