Here’s one sent by Colin from Massachusetts – thanks again! You might be thinking ‘man, this guy reviews a LOT of these Hong Kong CUP Noodles!’ Well, yeah I was sent 57 different varieties form Nissin Hong Kong last year so yeah – lots of them! But this one is actually from Nissin China. The packaging is similar, but different. Here’s a snippet from Wikipedia about Nissin’s footprint:
Nissin Foods has established offices and factories in various countries, such as Brazil (since 1981), Hong Kong (since 1985), India (since 1987), Germany (since 1993), Thailand (since 1994), China (since 1995), and Mexico (since 2000). Their products are also sold in the Philippines, Taiwan, Singapore, Canada, Sweden, Indonesia, Malaysia, Australia, the United Kingdom, Italy, Argentina and the United States.
It’s funny they don’t mention the fact that there’s a factory in the United States and of course Japan. Anyways, let’s crack open this cup – made in China.
