#2379: Nissin Cup Noodles Hot & Spicy Shrimp Flavor Ramen Noodle Soup (New Recipe)

#2379: Nissin Cup Noodles Hot & Spicy Shrimp Flavor Ramen Noodle Soup (New Recipe) - United States - The Ramen Rater

Well, this is it. Right now, I’m listening to the inauguration of Donald J. Trump. It’s January 20th, 2017 and kind of a weird day. I thought it would be fitting to review something from the United States today. Finally, after decades of sticking with the same recipe, Nissin has decided to go with something new. On Cup Noodles’ 45th anniversary here in the USA, they’ve changed it to make it healthier. Some changes are no added MSG and no artificial flavors. Furthermore they’ve lowered the amount of sodium in these cups from the previous versions using potassium chloride.  So, let’s give this Hot & Spicy Shrimp a try!

Some of the loose ingredients. In spite of being a shrimp variety, I couldn’t find any shrimp. Perhaps they are hiding out in the noodle block.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, shrimp and Cholula Original hot sauce. The noodles are of the standard Cup Noodles gauge and softness that are found in the domestic United States varieties. A good quantity as well. The broth had a hint of spiciness and a shrimp taste. What was a letdown here was that there were no shrimp. Zero. Zilch. Nada. I’m guessing maybe they just missed this cup or they don’t put the little shrimp in these. 2.5 out of 5.0 stars.

#2356: Nongshim Spicy Shrimp Cup Noodle - South Korea - The Ramen Rater -  instant noodles

I’ve had the export version in the past but this is the version that Koreans eat in South Korea. I picked this up in Taipei at a Carrefour store. I’d never been to one before and really didn’t know anything about them other than that I knew they existed in Taiwan. Here’s some info from Wikipedia –

Carrefour S.A. (French pronunciation: ​[kaʁfuʁ]) is a French multinational retailer headquartered in Boulogne Billancourt, France, in the Hauts-de-Seine Department near Paris.[2] It is one of the largest hypermarket chains in the world (with close to 1,600 hypermarkets at the end of 2015). Carrefour operates in more than 30 countries, in Europe, the Americas, Asia and Africa. Carrefour means “crossroads” and “public square” in French. The company is a component of the Euro Stoxx 50 stock market index.[3]

In 1989, Carrefour became the first international retailer to establish a presence in Asia when it entered Taiwan through a joint venture with Uni President Enterprises Corporation. It leveraged the experience it gathered in Taiwan to expand into other Asian markets.

Apparently there are 87 of them in Taiwan. We call them supermarkets here, but overseas they’re known as hypermarkets. Shrimp! Let’s take a gander.

I just realized – I meant to review the chicken Cup Noodles – no matter though! Nissin Mexico was kind enough to send 5 of each variety I’m reviewing, and so I can use one to get all the pictures and one to review. Keeps things tidy! Well, the one I grabbed as the second one is chicken. So… Going to have to switch that as it definitely won’t taste like shrimp haha! Let’s get started.
