#2578: Nissin Cup Noodles Chicken Vegetable Flavor Ramen Noodle Soup (New Recipe)

#2508: Nissin Cup Noodles Chicken Vegetable Flavor Ramen Noodle Soup (New Recipe) - United States - The Ramen Rater - instant noodles

I think this is the last of the new versions of the Cup Noodles from the USA. They changed the recipe last year to commemorate the 45th anniversary of Cup Noodles. Here’s a little from Wikipedia about the history of Cup Noodles –

1970s

In 1970, Nissin formed the subsidiary Nissin Foods (USA) Co. Inc, to sell instant noodles in the United States. Nissin recognized that the bowls traditionally used to package instant noodles in Asia were not common in the U.S, so they used the paper cup designed by Ron R. Matteson. In 1971, they introduced instant ramen packaged in a foam cup. In 1978, Nissin Foods offers new varieties of Top Ramen and Cup O’ Noodles. The product was known as Cup O’ Noodles in the United States until 1993.[citation needed]

1990s

In 1998, Cup Noodles Hot Sauce Varieties introduced (Beef, Chicken, Pork and Shrimp).[1]

Today

Today, instant noodles in Japan are often sold in foam bowls, sometimes with plastic utensils. Foam bowls are inexpensive, disposable, light, and easy to hold, since they insulate heat well. In 2016 the US version was changed, reducing sodium and removing MSG and artificial flavors.

Okay – let’s give it a try!

Some of the loose seasoning and garnish from the cup.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added baked chicken and spring onion. The noodles hydrated well enough – they have a slight crumble to them. The broth doesn’t exactly scream chicken to me; more vegetable. The included bits of vegetable hydrated nicely and were of decent quality. 2.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 070662030066.

#1246: Annie Chun’s Ramen House Chicken Vegetable Flavored Ramen

Here’s one of the new varieties from Annie Chun’s that they sent! It’s 22 degrees outside – very cold! This looks appropriate for such a cold day – let’s check it out!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat-free and a lot of natural ingredients. Lower calorie/fat as well. To prepare, cook noodles in 1 1/2 cups water for 1 minute. Drain water and boil another pot of water, 1 cup this time. Add the liquid sachet. Put the cooked noodles in a bowl and then add the broth.

The fresh noodles.

Liquid soup base sachet.

Has a nice chicken vegetable scent.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added baked chicken, broccoli, big ugly carrot, leeks, sweet onion and green onion. The noodles are reminiscent in texture of South Korean fresj udon cups – then again the noodles in those generally come in the same package. Yet these are much thinner than udon and have a slightly bouncy chew and good texture. The broth has a slightly sweet and full vegetable flavor which goes well with the noodle. The interaction between noodle and broth leaves me with a fresh and premium feel. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 765667140505.

Here’s an Annie Chun’s TV advert.

#373: Nissin Cup Noodles Chicken Vegetable Flavor Ramen Noodle Soup

So here’s one my lady Kit brought me back from California! Cup Noodles Chicken Vegetable time!

Standard lid for these…

No packets – everything’s in the cup.

Click image to enlarge. Here’s the finished product. The noodles were a little funky in this one – kind of tough even though they’d sat is the boiling water for a good five minutes. The veggies never seemed to completely rehydrate… The broth was nice though. All in all, a kind of lackluster Cup Noodles – 2.75 out of 5.0 stars. Get it here. UPC bar code 070662030066.
