Nissin - The first Somen Cup Noodle
Nissin is going to release the first Cup Noodle product that uses Somen noodles - Cup Noodle Light Somen - on July 7.
Somen is a very thin Japanese noodle made of wheat flour, and since it's very simple and easy to eat, Japanese people eat cold Somen noodles a lot especially during summer.
The soup of Cup Noodle Light Somen is simple Japanese style made from mixed broth of chicken, shitake mushroom, seaweed and baby clams. The package also looks very Japanese, so it could be a fun reasonable souvenir to bring back to your country if you have a plan to visit Japan soon.
Cup Noodle Light Somen is good to eat cold, too. You can enjoy it cold by adding 180g of ice and stir well before eating.
