Well, this was something that upon hearing about, made me extremely happy. Curry. From Nissin Foods America. I mean wow – this is something now made and available in the United States! How awesome is that? Not only this one, but the Seafood Cup Noodle is available too. They’ve changed the recipe a little and now have no artifical flavors and no MSG. Plus, you CAN MICROWAVE IT! Wow – pretty awesome! The lid says these are the #1 curry cup noodles in Japan. I’m going to go out on a limb and say these are the same for the United States as I do believe they’re the ONLY curry cup variety in the United States. So let’s see if these are good – I really, really hope they’re going to stick around for a while!

The noodle block.
Ample seasoning from the cup.
Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles are thin and flat with a very light tooth. The broth is a salty curry and strong enough. However, there is no spiciness. The included bits of potato hydrated perfectly. An apt translation of the Japanese original 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 070662402023.
So it looks like Nissin Foods here in the United States is finally moving towards the model from Japan. More varieties and weird commercials – very happy to see it!
