Ahh the last one of the new cup versions from Nissin Foods, USA. Thanks again to the folks over there for sending them along! We’re all familiar with the old style cups – they had a cardboard outer packaging with the foam cup underneath in plastic wrap. This is much different – a little bigger and free of all the extra cardboard and plastic wrap, making it a little more eco-friendly. I still haven’t spotted this one in the ‘wild’ yet – I hear that they’re only available to start with at the Super Walmarts – the ones with the regular big Walmart stuff and the grocery store as well. Anyways, chicken’s baking in the oven to add to this one, so let’s check it out.
Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Contains chicken. To prepare, remove lid and add room temp water to inside line. Set in the center of the microwave and cook for 2 1/2 minutes, then let it sit in there for an additional minute. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.
Some loose seasoning from the cup.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, chicken baked with Johnny’s Chicken Seasoning and a little kizami shoga (pickled ginger. The noodles are broad and flat and hydrated perfectly in the microwave. The broth definitely had more of a creamy chicken taste to it – which was very good! I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed this one thoroughly. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 070662030233.
