Japanese fashion brand UNIQLO has teamed up with instant noodle giant NISSIN to release a HEATTECH Donbei instant noodle to fight the cold of winter in Japan.
The collaboration instant noodles will come in two different variants: “HEATTECH Donbei Meita-style Ankake Udon” and “HEATTECH Donbei Pork Dashi Ankake Soba,” according to Hypebeast.
The udon variant will center around the savory flavor of mentaiko, a salted pollock roe, combined with a ginger-based soup. The soba variant will come fully packed in a strong pork flavor with an ankake-thickened ginger soup stock, Hypebae reported.
To make sure you stay warm during the winter, UNIQLO X NISSIN seasoned up the two flavors with spicy ginger and shichimi pepper.
The UNIQLO x NISSIN HEATTECH Donbei Instant Noodle Cups are expected to go on sale in Japan on Jan. 25 for 193 yen ($1.86) each. Imports to the United States are expected in the near future, but no specific dates have been announced yet.
