Yoriko Takahashi - June 23, 2014

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.

Nissin just released the first product from their new instant noodle series called JACK.

The first JACK instant noodle, just released 2 days ago, is a super-hot instant friend noodle that comes with spicy powder made from 3 stimulating ingredients: habanero pepper, wasabi and hot mustard. Nissin calls the power "JACK powder". The provided sauce to mix with the noodle contains sweet soybean paste and spicy sichuan pepper.
