Hey check it out – Nissin Cup Noodles got a big facelift.
Here’s how they used to look – cardboard outer packaging is now gone. Less packaging and different materials have been used to make them more environmentally friendly. Also, they’re ot microwavable! Yes, I’m sure maky of you microwaved them before, but you weren’t supposed to. The new cups also have a little extra room so you can add veggies and meats or whatever you want to oomph up your noodles! Let’s check this new cup out!

Detail of the top and bottom of the lid (click image to enlarge). I think this is the first time I’ve seen print on the underside of a lid in a US made instant noodle product – awesome!
The noodle block.
Some loose noodle bits and seasoning.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added a shrimp. The noodles came out great – thin and flat. They were all hydrated well. The broth has a shrimp taste to it. The bits of vegetable and shrimp were also perfectly hydrated. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 070662030028.
