Here’s an interesting one from Japan found in a Zenpop box – check out zenpop.jp and use the coupon code THERAMENRATER for a discount!
Here’s what they had to say ‘To start 2023, we’re riding the Kimetsu no Yaiba (鬼滅の刃) wave and still enjoying this already cult anime. With this unique collaboration, Nissin delivered something new and exciting for one of their classic recipes. W-dashi (two kinds of bonito) soup stock is used to give the soup a rich and deep flavor. With this, the kitsune udon noodles (きつねうどん) feature 100% whole soybean flakes made using the same process as that used by tofu makers. It’s a quite unique combination with lovely flavors and aromas. This cup is perfect for you to start the year with a healthy and heartwarming cup of noodles!’
Never heard of this anime – sounds interesting though… Wonder if it’s any good. Well, let’s see if the noodle is good.
