Unfortunaterly, the salty taste kept me at bay. Vegetable bits hydrated well enough. Just too salty and oddly so. 2.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 4013200883225.

#2683: Nissin Cup Noodles Champignons (Mushroom) - Japan - The Ramen Rater

So here’s one I got up in Canada in July. So Nissin Japan does regional varieties – there are tons of Nissin branches all over the world – Nissin Germany is one of them. This is one for the Japanese market and looks a lot like the German Cup Noodles varieties.

At the outset, I should mention something. So yesterday I picked a couple varieties for reviewing today and I picked two mushroom varieties. Honestly, I didn’t think about that, but generally, I’m not a big fan of mushrooms. Hoping today is a good day for mushrooms and my palate. Let’s give this one a try.

Meet The Manufacturer: #2496: Nissin Soba Gebratene Nudeln Thai

Here’s the last of the Soba varieties I’ve got here. I’m very curious about Thai; is it tom yum? Is it full of basil? This Soba is short for yakisoba – a little on yakisoba from Wikipedia –

Yakisoba (焼きそば?), literally “fried buckwheat,” or sōsu yakisoba (ソース焼きそば?) (the same, but in sauce). It first appeared in food stalls in Japan during the early 20th century.[1] Although soba means buckwheat, typically suggesting noodles made from that flour in mainland Japan, yakisoba noodles are made from wheat flour. Yakisoba is typically flavored with a condiment similar to oyster sauce.

It is prepared by frying ramen-style noodles with bite-sized pork, vegetables (usually cabbage, onions or carrots) and flavored with yakisoba sauce, salt and pepper. It is served with a multitude of garnishes, such as aonori (seaweed powder), beni shoga (shredded pickled ginger), katsuobushi (fish flakes), and mayonnaise.

Indeed, it could be anything – but I’m definitely going to find out!

Meet The Manufacturer: #2495: Nissin Cup Noodles Huhn (Chicken) - Germany - The Ramen Rater - instant noodles

Well, there’s always going to be a chicken variety. Here it is! I really don’t know how else to introduce it or what else to say! Here’s a little something about the history of Cup Noodles from Wikipedia –

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.

Alright – ready, set, chicken!

Meet The Manufacturer: #2494: Nissin Demae Ramen Korean Kimchi Flavour - Germany - The Ramen Rater - instant noodles

I think it only makes sense for cabbage to have some kind of standing in Germany. I mean, sauerkraut is pickled cabbage after all. Never tried kimchi before? Here’s a little information from Wikipedia –

Kimchi (English pronunciation: /ˈkɪmtʃi/, from Korean: 김치; gimchi [kim.tɕʰi]), a staple in Korean cuisine, is a traditional banchan (side dish) made from salted and fermented vegetables, most commonly napa cabbages and Korean radishes, with a variety of seasonings including gochutgaru (chili powder), scallions, garlics, ginger, and jeotgal (salted seafood) among others.[1]

A 2003 article in the Los Angeles Times said that South Koreans consume 40 pounds (18 kg) of kimchi per person annually.[54] A 2015 book cited a 2011 source that said that adult Koreans eat from 50 grams (0.11 lb) to 200 grams (0.44 lb) of kimchi a day.[55]

Some credit Korea’s industrious energy as a people, and their nation’s rapid economic growth, in part to eating the dish.[35] It is is made of various vegetables and contains a high concentration of dietary fiber,[56][57] while being low in calories. One serving also provides over 50% of the daily recommended amount of vitamin C and carotene

During the 2003 SARS outbreak in Asia, many people believed that it could protect against infection. While there was no scientific evidence to support this belief, kimchi sales rose by 40%.[63][54]

Here’s another new variety of the Soba line – yakitori chicken. Here’s a little something about yakitori from Wikipedia –

Yakitori (Japanese: 焼き鳥?, lit. grill chicken) is a Japanese type of skewer chicken.

The preparation of Yakitori involves skewering the meat with kushi (?), a type of skewer typically made of steel, bamboo, or similar materials. Afterwards, they are grill over a charcoal fire. During or after cooking, the meat is typically season with tare sauce or salt.[1]

In order to facilitate even cooking, the meat is cut into small, roughly uniform shapes and then skewered with kushi; after which the yakitori are seasoned and cooked. Charcoal is the preferred method of cooking as it produces high heat and strong flames while giving off little to no water vapor. This allows for the ingredients to cook quickly while imparting a crunchy texture to the skin. While gas and electric heat sources can be used, they do not develop the same aromas or textures as charcoal-cooked yakitori.

Guess I’d better cook some chicken up! Let’s check out this new variety!
