Here’s an interesting one from Japan found in a Zenpop box – check out zenpop.jp and use the coupon code RAMENRATER for a discount!
Here’s what they had to say – ‘A collaboration between Acecook and Hello Kitty! Acecook, the noodle manufacturer famous for its pig mascot, headquartered in our hometown of Osaka, and Hello Kitty. Do we need to introduce Hello Kitty? Kitty White, by her full name, born in London, England, and now worth 7 billion dollars. Curious about her size? You’re going to need apples. Yes. That’s how she’s measured: in apples. Let’s get down to business: smooth and crisp round-edged noodles. That’s what he all came here for. It is seasoned appropriately and finished well with the soup. One more tonkotsu soup (it’s getting cold, you’ll understand!) flavored with a mix of vegetables and shiitake mushrooms based on pork is leveled up with pepper to create a timeless
taste. When it comes to savory fried balls and cute Hello Kitty, corn, sesame and green onions are added to finish. Acecook made a very tasty and healthy portions of noodles, wrapped in
a めっちゃ可愛い (very kawaii) box showcasing an all-time favorite anime character! Don’t forget to watch the limited edition video from the QR code at the back of the lid! ‘
Going to let my daughter enjoy this one I think – she’s a big Hello Kitty head and she can check out the video – that’s pretty snazzy. Let’s have a look!
