“Delicious to eat, fun to look at. This bowl contains cute Pikachu naruto (fish cakes) inside. The creamy soup is seasoned with seafood, pork and chicken. Gotta eat it all! (It’s easy ’cause it’s small.)’
Well then, let’s check out this little Pikachu noodle cup from Japan!

The noodle block.
Loose bits from the cup including little Pikachu fishcake.
A collectible Pokemon thingy.
Here it is (click to enlarge). A little disc that isn’t cardboard but is slightly more rigid than paper. Looks like you can collect lots of them. I should also mention – in Japan, Pokemon is referred to as Pocket Monsters.
Finished (click to enlarge). Noodles are alright – not really amazing or anything since the focus of this product is Pokemon. The broth is a salty and buttery seafood taste which was quite good with the noodle. Bits of corn hydrated well and the abundant fishcake was fun to eat. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.

If you’re a fan of defenseless and weak Pokemon, this is the one for you. I’m pretty sure Magikarp is worth something but not sure what.
