I couldn’t help myself. I thought that for my 2,600th review, maybe an homage to the first video game console I’d ever played was in order. I thought the pixelated graphics could do a nice job and so here we are. So this is a new range for Nissin Cup Noodle Nice. The Cup Noodle Nice look to me a distant cousin of the Cup Noodle Light+ series – they contain non-fried noodles for starters. They have the same fiber as a ton of lettuce, lower calories, etc. If this comes out as good as the Light+ varieties did, then this should be something special. Let’s see what Wikipedia has to say about Nissin Japan –
Established in Japan on September 4, 1948, by Momofuku Ando as Nissin Food Products Co., Ltd. of Japan (日清食品株式会社 Nisshin Shokuhin Kabushiki-gaisha) and ten years later introduced the first instant ramen noodle product, Chikin Ramen (Chicken Ramen). They established a US subsidiary Nissin Foods in 1970 and sold instant ramen noodle products under the name Top Ramen. Instant noodles (1958) and cup noodles(1971) were both invented by Momofuku Ando. Nissin Foods has its headquarters in Yodogawa-ku, Osaka.
Nissin Foods has established offices and factories in various countries, such as Hungary (since 1993), Brazil (since 1981), Hong Kong (since 1985), India (since 1987), Germany (since 1993), Thailand (since 1994), China (since 1995), and Mexico (since 2000). Their products are also sold in the Philippines, Taiwan, Hungary, Singapore, Canada, Sweden, Indonesia, Malaysia, Australia, the United Kingdom, Italy, Argentina and the United States.

Loose garnish and seasoning from the cup.
Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles are excellent; I don’t know why they just don’t replace these in all Cup Noodle Japanese varieties; they’re just the right way to go I think! The broth has a bit of thickness to it which was unexpected but very nice. The included vegetable, egg and pork just all worked together so well. Really an amazing and excellent cup of noodles. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4902105237847.
