Here’s what they had to say about this one – ‘Butter and soy sauce, if that’s not how a love story starts, then I don’t know either. This Pokémon noodle is the twin-cup of the one we have in
our Mix pack, and a delightful meal in itself. These are butter soy sauce flavored ramen come with cute Pikachu kamaboko (蒲鉾, fish paste). The noodles have a nice texture and are
easy to slurp in their smooth broth. The soy sauce-based seasoning makes the soup warm your heart and belly in this Valentine’s season. The soup naturally has the umami (うまみ) of chicken and the mellow flavor of butter, with flavored vegetables and the richness of scallops. It also includes more toppings with the Pikachu kamaboko, such as potatoes and corn.’

Been doing a lot of buttery stuff lately. This one sounds pretty good – let’s check it out!

Loose bits and seasoning from the cup.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added egg, spring onion, and sesame seed. The noodles came out only so-so. The broth was as expected – a shoyu with a little movie theater popcorn flavor. Pieces of corn and potato were in there, and the potato was reminiscent of Taco Bell Fiesta Potatoes. 2.0 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4901734044826.
