It took Momofuku Ando, the founder of Nissin, 12 years (from 1958 to 1971) to go from his original creation, the instant ramen, to the product that made him and his company even more famous, the Cup Noodle. Dimple as it might seem, the idea of putting the noodles and the toppings in a foam cup that could be used as both a pot to make them and a bowl to eat them took Japan (and the world) by storm. Today, 50 years later, the company celebrates its half-century mark with the amazing Nissin 50th Anniversary Cup Noodle Soda Pack, a Cup Noodle "greatest hits" set – with a twist!
The "greatest hits" part are the nine cups, one each of the best Cup Noodle flavors: Plain, Seafood, Curry, Chili Tomato, the thick Tonkotsu, Miso, Cheese Curry, the salty Shio, and the extra spicy Karamen. And the twist is that they come with one 280 ml (9.4 fl oz) each of four special carbonated drinks flavored based on Noodle Cup bestsellers: Plain, Seafood, Curry, and Chili Tomato. A ginger ale, cream soda, cola soda, and tomato soda, respectively, these limited-edition, Japan-only drinks prove that Nissin can still surprise the world with its innovative spirit!
