Here’s one of the new straight noodle varieties from Nissin – miso. So miso is one of the main varieties of ramen – here’s some info on it from Wikipedia –
Miso ramen is a relative newcomer, having reached national prominence around 1965. This uniquely Japanese ramen, which was developed in Hokkaido, features a broth that combines copious miso and is blended with oily chicken or fish broth – and sometimes with tonkotsu or lard – to create a thick, nutty, slightly sweet and very hearty soup. Miso ramen broth tends to have a robust, tangy flavor, so it stands up to a variety of flavorful toppings: spicy bean paste or tōbanjan (豆瓣醤), butter and corn, leeks, onions, bean sprouts, ground pork, cabbage, sesame seeds, white pepper, and chopped garlic are common. The noodles are typically thick, curly, and slightly chewy.
Yeah, this is one of those flavors that’s really hit or miss for me. There are quite a few kinds of paste out there and some companies use one over the other. Let’s give this a try and find out if I like it!

One of the two bundles of noodles (there are two servings per package). I like to call these bindles and have for a long time. It’s just because I like the word. But really, that’s incorrect so I’ll just call them bundles as I should.
