Nissin Cup Noodle Cheese Curry the New Edition
Cup Noodle Cheese Curry is one of my favorite instant noodles introduced by Nissin in 2000.
Unlike the regular version of Nissin Cup Noodle Curry, the broth of this ramen is demi-glace-based.
It has plenty of umami from beef, onion, and tomato, and the added mild, rich cheese sets the soup much apart from its counterparts.

Recently, Nissin renewed the Cup Noodle Cheese Curry, and the new edition came into the market on March 1st of this year (2021).
The cup has an extra cheese sachet attached to the lid, and the special cheese powder gives the soup extra mildness and deepens its taste.
Incidentally, based on the official website of Nissin, it is made up of 3 different varieties of cheese, parmesan, Emmental, and gouda.
It appears like the contents are almost the same as the old edition.
The dehydrated garnishes on the dried wheat noodle block consist of seasoned beef mince, processed mozzarella cheese, mushrooms, and carrots.
As the new cup comes with an extra cheese powder sachet, the preparation requires one more step.
After cooking the noodles by pouring boiling water and waiting for 3 minutes, you need to top the soup as a finishing process with the cheese powder.
Taste-wide, the noodles are of usual Cup Noodle quality, soft and not bouncy.
But the broth takes on a layered, complex flavor, compared to the old edition, and is pretty good.
According to the ingredient list,
the soup base consists of sugars, pork lard, wheat flour, cheese powder, starch, tomato powder, flavoring, curry powder, onion seasoning, dairy products, salt, spices, yeast extract, and beef lard.
