In a way, the Dream Tomica Cup Noodle embody postwar Japanese culture in a single box: on one hand, you have Nissin's instant ramen, perhaps the most famous Japanese food item after sushi and a staple of any Japanese household from 1948 onward; and on the other, Takara Tomy's Tomica, undoubtedly the most famous Japanese car-related toy and a staple of any Japanese home with children (and particularly boys) from 1970 onward. It's almost a wonder why such a collaboration never happened until now – especially considering the fun, somewhat surreal note!
What's so surreal? Well, the Dream Tomica Cup Noodle are vehicle-shaped mini cups of some of Nissin's most popular flavors! You have your Curry, Seafood, Chili Tomato, Miso, Kara-men, and Tom Yum Kung, with every detail on the cup painstakingly duplicated because they have been created in partnership with the designers of the real things! And when you open the lid, you can see a very realistic reproduction of the contents of the Nissin instant ramen cups!
