Zero Second Chicken Ramen: Noodle Snack from Nissin
A noodle snack named Zero Second Chicken Ramen (0秒チキンラーメン) intrigued me recently, following the Nure Jaga (ぬれじゃが) wet potato chips I introduced in the previous post.
Although the maker Nissin announced that it suspended the product’s sales at the end of last month (as it sold much better than expected), I could find it in a 7 Eleven a few days ago.
Nissin Zero Second Chicken Ramen
This Zero Second Chicken Ramen (Price: 111 yen/about 0.9 USD) is the snack version of Nissin Chicken Ramen, one of the world’s first instant noodles that Nissin Foods boasts.
In fact, you can see the product’s mascot character, Hiyoko-Chan (ひよこちゃん), on the yellow package front.
This snack has almost the same size and shape as the Nissin Chicken Raman instant noodle block, and it may be hard to tell them apart if the packaging is gone.
Nissin recommends not cooking this snack, for the resultant dish is not good, so if you mistake it for the actual Chicken Ramen, the consequence will be tragic.
As 0 秒 (Zero Second) in the name suggests, you can eat these deep-fried noodles as they are without cooking.
Once biting into it, I found the crispy texture is better than Baby Star Ramen, as these treats come together in the mouth.
The taste is also as great as the actual Chicken Ramen, and I could enjoy this to my heart’s content.
