Costco Shoyu Ramen Bowl Review
I didn’t make this review…but I think you can get a good look at the product and hear their thoughts, feedback and comparisons. Spoiler alert…they aren’t big fans. But they do seem to really know ramen….on the one hand their opinion is pretty trustworthy…on the other…if you grew up on el cheapie American ramen noodles I think you’ll still find the Shoyu Ramen a vast upgrade to your ramen game!
