Found this in a Zenpop.jp box – you get seven varieties of instant noodles to try! I would say that almost every time I’ve gotten one of these, I’ve never tried any of them before which is really awesome. Use coupon code THERAMENRATER for a groovy discount! Here’s what they had to say about this one – ‘
Sapporo Ichiban x Riken Wakame Soup Flavored Ramen = Yes please! The moment you’ll open the lid of your cup, you’ll be greeted with the scent of wakame seaweed. There’s no mistaking it. This cup delivers classic Japanese flavors in a compact packaging. They might not look like a fancy cup from the outside, but we were all surprised when we got to try them: yummy! That’ll sum it up. It’s exactly what you’ll expect from a wakame ramen. It will transport you to the seaside of Japan for a gustative experience.
Riken’s dried wakame seaweed is known for its multiple health benefits like being rich in vitamins, minerals, iodine, and dietary fiber and this cup will make your body whole.’
This is the last one from this Zenpop box and I’ve been kind of debating doing it. I’ve had quite a few wakame varieties and honestly not hugely into them. But, I’ll shove that aside and give it a try.

The noodle block.
Loose bits from the cup.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added narutomaki, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion, sesame seed, and shichimi. Noodles were slightly spongy and just looked so unappetizing with their bleached demeanor. Flavor was a funky ‘of the sea’ and seaweed/kelpy kind of horror show I couldn’t get with. 0.25 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4901734042440.
