Nissin Cup Noodle Miso Flavor Instant Ramen

Nissin is the instant noodle manufacturer with the top share in Japan.

In recent years, its flagship instant ramen brand “Cup Noodle” is not only enjoyed among Japanese people but has become a favorite in many countries.

As you may know, the flavor of Nissin Cup Noodles varies according to the preference and eating habits of each country.

In Japan, when people think of the regular flavors, what comes to most people’s minds would be Shoyu (soy sauce), Curry, or Seafood.

“Miso (味噌)” flavor actually didn’t exist in the series until recently, even though it is one of the essential parts of Japanese cuisine, together with soy sauce.

To be exact, Nissin introduced Miso flavor from its Cup Noodle line twice in the past.

But both the sales periods of the first generation (released in 1992) and second-generation (released in 2006) were short-lived.

The Third Generation

Nonetheless, Nissin developed the flavor anew and put “Nissin Cup Noodle Miso Mini” on the market on April 2, 2018, which earned a good reputation.

As a result, Nissin re-released the regular size of the Cup Noodle on April 1, 2019, which I tried today.

This is the third generation of Nissin Cup Noodle Miso Flavor.

In the cup, you will see soup base powder and dehydrated garnishes mixed in with the dried noodle block. The garnish consists of mystery meat, corn grains, cabbage bits, carrots, and green onions.

The cooking of this ramen is the same as other regular Cup Noodles; pour boiling water into the cup, close the lid, and let the noodles steep for 3 minutes.

3 minutes later, remove the lid, and you can enjoy the noodle soup!

From ginger, garlic, and three different varieties of Miso paste, Mugi Miso (wheat miso), Aka Miso (red miso), and Shiro Miso (white miso), the broth gets a rich flavor and a little bit of kick.

Overall, the ramen was pretty good. Compared to others, like Nissin Sumire Sapporo Miso Ramen, the Miso flavor is simple and robust.
