ALDI – Red Thai Curry – Journey To Thailand – Food Review

June 13, 2018

You won’t have to journey to Thailand to find this, but you may have to wait 12 months – or at least until ALDI decides to have this special again.  I don’t know how I missed it the first time, but I did find it marked down to $1.25, half price, the next week.  Unfortunately when I got back to the store two days later, it was all gone.

This is very good.  The slight sweetness of the coconut milk contrasts nicely with the spices and moderate heat of the other ingredients in the thin curry sauce.  It’s a very good sauce approaching good restaurant quality.  Floating in the sauce are big chunks of veggies and big noodles. The wide flat noodles are thicker and wider than a linguine noodle for comparison.  The cooked noodles had a nice texture and were cooked just about to perfection. Among the veggies were baby corn, sugar snap peas, carrots and pieces of red bell pepper and mango.  Normally I don’t like baby corn, but these were different.  First, they were the size where they should be attending kindergarten.  Second, they also were correctly cooked and had none of that starchy taste of the smaller baby corn.



Amy’s Thai Green Curry – Target – Food Review – Vegan

March 5, 2018

Certified vegan, certified organic, non-GMO, dairy-free, gluten-free, family owned, 100% recycled paperboard carton and re-recyclable, Amy ticks off almost all the check boxes.  It even tastes pretty good.

The green curry is medium spicy. More than the heat, it also a nice flavor. The flavor is not as complex as what can be found at a good Thai restaurant, but still nice by frozen box-food standards. The rice and vegetables are a bit softer than I like, but not overly so. Like many commercial products, the amount of sodium in the product is on the high side, 780 mg. At 360 calories per container, it’s a light lunch, but still filling.  The$3.75 sale price is getting up there for a single portion frozen boxed meal. However if you need one of those check boxes listed above, this product could be for you.
