Cup Noodles Now Has Chicken Nugget and French Fry Ramen

In case you’ve missed it, Nissin just unveiled a rather odd combination of flavor for its ever-so popular Cup Noodles variant in Japan by combining three of the most popular fast food in one package: chicken nuggets, French fries and instant ramen.

This new variant, called Cup Noodle Potenage Big, first went on sale in Japan on February 12. It is 94 grams (3.3 ounces), making it a bit larger compared to the original variant of only just 77 grams (2.7 ounces). It’s being sold at a price of 205 yen ($1.91), Mashable reported.

The cup noodle may come off as a spicy variant for some as its ingredients include a spicy soup mixed with black peppers so it’s got a kick into it. Other ingredients include scrambled eggs, green onions, tiny cuts of chicken nuggets and peeled potatoes, which are meant to represent french fries.

Just like the other ones, you’d also have to pour boiling water into the cup and wait for a few minutes for it to cook.

SoraNews24, in its review, described the chicken nuggets as “small in size, but pack plenty of flavor with their spicy breading, and their meat is moist and tender all the way to the center.” The potato chunks, meanwhile, “have an enticing aroma, and are soft and delicious,” and its unique broth starts with a “soy base and adding a liberal amount of black pepper.”

Not gonna lie, this new product in Nissin’s Cup Noodles line of food does look enticing.
