A huge shout out and thank you to Breeze K – a regular reader and commenter – for sending these along! She got them from a friend who visited the Cup Noodle museum in Japan! Man, I want to check that place out someday – what a humbling experience that would be… All those Cup Noodles… Anyways, the guy on here’s name is Anpanman. He’s a comic/cartoon hero of sorts from Japan you may have seen before. This cup is very small – only calls for 170ml boiling water to cook it. Shall we give it a try? Let’s!
Nissin Anpanman Soy Sauce Flavor Cup Noodle – Japan
Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Unsure whether it contains meat – check for yourself. To prepare, add boiling water to line and cover 3 minutes. Finally, stir and enjoy!

A little noodle block.
Loose bits including fishcake.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added nothing. The noodles are thin and very soft – like softer than soft. On the plus side they aren’t spongy or crumbly whatsoever. They embrace a light shoyu broth which is reminiscent of Chikin Ramen. Lots of little character fishcakes float about happily. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4902105227008.
