Perhaps you feel that Ibumie is a pirated product that is leeching off the success of Indomie. Not only are the packaging similiar in appearance, the taste is exactly the same.
COPYCAT! PIRATIST! You may yell. This Kuchingite definitely did.
Original Indomie packaging. Borrowed from a site which discusses about being fat. (seriously)
And Ibumie packaging. Borrowed from the miffed Kuchingite's weblog.
There's a pretty good explanation to this piracy.
They are by the same company.
(Corbis image added to increase dramatic tension)
Both noodles are distributed by Biz-Allianz and Ibumie apparently decided to buy the Indomie name.
So. Unnecessary research aside, eat well knowing that Ibumie isn't a cheap knock-off of Indomie, but, its spiritual successor.
