During the Nissin Japan Meet The Manufacturer, I reviewed 15 varieties. Well, Daisuke-san from Nissin Japan sent many more – amazing varieties that I get to put into the regular rotation and share with you now! Thank you again, Daisuke-san! This is one of the new new Cup Noodle Light varieties – let’s take a look! By the way – he mentioned that just recently, Cup Noodle(s) has been enjoyed over 40 BILLION times since the 1970s! Wow!

Finished (click to enlarge). My first thought is wow. So the noodles come out very nicely – light chew and nice gauge. These noodles are different from the standard Cup Noodle. The broth is sensational; it’s very thick and has a very nice cheese taste as well as a layered and rich vegetable flavor which is not only savory but has very gourmet notes to it. I’m finding cabbage and red bell pepper as well as sweet carrot and potatoes. This is really great – and that it’s a light variety is mind boggling as it’s full of flavor and doesn’t skimp on anything. Very delicious. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4902105237199.
