I tried Nissin Reiwa Cup Noodles with the name of Japan’s new era

Since “Reiwa (令和)” has come, I have seen several products whose name includes the name of the Japan’s new era recently in supermarkets.

I love noodle soups, so when I go shopping at a grocery store, I definitely head to its instant noodles section and look for newly released products with delicious-looking appealing packaging.

Last time when I shopped at a drugstore near my workplace, I came across the Peyang’s instant Yakisoba cup with a golden product package for celebrating the advent of Reiwa.

Nissin Reiwa Instant Cup Ramen

And yesterday, piles of this Nissin’s instant ramen cups welcomed me at the entrance of the instant noodles section of a supermarket in my neighborhood. 

On the golden paper lid, the “Kanji (漢字)” Chinese characters meaning “the first year of Reiwa”, “令和元年” are printed.

For this package design, what do you think is used as a motif? If you are acquainted with Japan’s things, you will be able to answer it easily!

The answer is

Daruma (だるま)

Daruma is a traditional Japanese wishing doll, which is known as a lucky charm for the new year in Japan. Now, let’s get back on track!

The Flavor 

Actually, I wondered what flavor this instant cup ramen has when I looked carefully at the product package, because there was no description on the flavor there.

Therefore, I checked the ingredient list and Nissin’s official website. According to those, the contents of this instant ramen were the same as those of Nissin Cup Noodles Soy Sauce (Amazon.com).

Like this, Nissin Reiwa Cup Noodles was just the Nissin Cup Noodles Soy Sauce with a memorial lucky package for the Japan’s new era, “Reiwa (令和)”!
