Japan’s Cup Noodle releases ramen with chicken nuggets, french fries
Of all the wild food combinations one could come up with, the crispiness of chicken nuggets and fries and soupy ramen don’t strike as the best of partners.
Well you’d think that, but Cup Noodle in Japan has released a product combining the three classic fast foods in one package.
The Cup Noodle Potenage Big, as its called, was officially released by Nissin on Monday and costs a rather reasonable 205 yen (US$1.91).
As the name gives away, it’s a touch bigger: The Potenage Big is 94 grams (3.3 oz), while regular Cup Noodle weighs in at 77 grams (2.7 oz).
On the list of ingredients there’s noodles, a spicy soup with a black pepper kick, scrambled eggs, green onions, and of course, the chicken nuggets and peeled potatoes — the latter of which are meant to represent French fries.
Of course, the product is only available in Japan, and you’ll need to fill it up with hot water just like any other cup ramen on the market.
The folks at RocketNews24 tried it, noting the chicken nuggets are “small in size, but pack plenty of flavor with their spicy breading,” while the potato has an “enticing aroma, and are soft and delicious.”
We’re not quite convinced, but guess we can’t knock it until we’ve tried it.
