#2683: Nissin Cup Noodles Champignons (Mushroom)

#2683: Nissin Cup Noodles Champignons (Mushroom) - Japan - The Ramen Rater

So here’s one I got up in Canada in July. So Nissin Japan does regional varieties – there are tons of Nissin branches all over the world – Nissin Germany is one of them. This is one for the Japanese market and looks a lot like the German Cup Noodles varieties.

At the outset, I should mention something. So yesterday I picked a couple varieties for reviewing today and I picked two mushroom varieties. Honestly, I didn’t think about that, but generally, I’m not a big fan of mushrooms. Hoping today is a good day for mushrooms and my palate. Let’s give this one a try.

Loose bits and seasoning.

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles are thin and flat with a soft chew. The broth does have a mushroom taste, but it is more milky and also augmented with mushrooms and I think there was chicken in there. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4902105242193.
