Goods: Animate Japan Instant Cup Udon (Yupon, Comiket 79, C79 Nitro+Chiral Set)

Just add hot water!

Title: Event only Animate Japan Instant Udon freebie for Comiket 79 Nitro_Chiral set
Price: Free :P (but you can factor in proxy costs OTL;;)

Anyway, I got this udon cup bowl noodle way back in January 2011. The expiry date is 11 May 2011 ^^;;; and OMG how time flies! It’s May already and I finally ate it on Monday 9 May 2011.

Opened pack with usual soup base powder and dried udon noodles inside. I was expecting the “fat” type of udon tho. Typical bare-bones cup noodle lol~

Let’s take a closer look. Two ways to eat it. Soup style or dry style. Soup style: add the soup base powder, then add hot water. Dry style: add hot water to soften the noodles, pour away the water, then add the soup base powder and mix.

Well, usually the dry method = to very salty noodles ^^;; so I’ll do the soup style and add the powder into the bowl.

Add hot water, cover and wait 3 minutes.

While we wait for the noodles to be softened, I checked out the label. And hey! It’s actually a sticker! :D Nice surprise!

3 minutes up. Well, I actually waited a little bit longer than that. Let’s check the noodles.

Yep! Looks good!

The noodles were quite chewy and the texture wasn’t too bad.

The soup is the clear-type. How do I describe the taste :-\ hmm… well it’s typical… shouyu (Japanese soy sauce) flavour? Not too bad either.

So that was my breakfast on 9 May ^^;; and I consumed 156 calories comprising of mostly carbo and probably a day’s worth of sodium intake OTL;; Definitely not healthy food lol~

  1. (*_*) Somehow this makes me think if I ever gone to Japan, I won’t survive the “too cute.. must have!” attack…

  2. OMG! I didn’t know about this udon!
    Where can I find Tetsuo in sweet pool?^^
    And I think you can say shouyu if you mean soy sause. Shio is salt.

    1. @Bangin-san: opps XD salt flavour… thanks for correcting me hehe will update :3 always nice to see your comments!

      I got it as a freebie from the nitro chiral set i ordered from the last comiket if I remembered correct.

  3. @ponytale yup, they’re for emergencies xDDDDDDD. Yeah, but I think that the cardiac problem wasn’t exactly that, and was a sign of my hypoglucemia. The latter can cause fatigue, and that includes (or at least I felt it) mild tachycardia. I went to the doctor, take some pills and never had that problem again.

  4. The worst thing about food goods is always the expiration date :P
    I recently had to eat through a box of candy because of this lol

  5. hahaha cup udon just got cuter =w=
    Hmm….it’s a lot easier to eat than the cup udon they sell in korea
    Cuz here, we have to add water to soften the noodles first before we add the soup…
    hahaha definitely not the healthiest thing to eat but if I ever do drop by in japan, I will definitely get one for my self :)

  6. Looks interesting, but I’m not fan of instant noodles. Yes, they have more sodium than normal food, and it does not good to my health (I had some minor cardiac problem when I was about 10-12 years old).

    But are helpful if you’re lazy and don’t want to make a complicate dinner, or there’s no time or food.

    1. @Asamisa: They’re great for satisfying sudden cravings occasionally XD but definitely bad for health if you drink up the whole of the soup… too salty! Not recommended for daily consumption. :O have you recovered completely from the cardiac problem?

  7. Aw. lol, I agree with Oru and plank-chan~ Akira’s cute lil mouth is so adorable. LOl, kept looking at that picture instead :D

  8. Gosh, I totally agree with Oru, Aki lil mouth is so cute! LOL I was trying to figure out who’s the other guy on futon, I was, is he from some Nitro+ or something?, but then I remembered, I think he’s the Animate mascot, right? And he’s very cute on Yupon style.

    1. @planck-chan: yeah :D love yupon <3 Yep, the guy in the futon is Animate Tencho~ the Animate mascot… since this is a animate sponsored udon :P

  9. Cannot look away from Akira’s cute little bic-mouth, so adorable ; h ;
    And that sure was pretty close to the expiring date, good thing you got reminded else it’d be a waste (though at least you’d have a sticker? XD).

    1. @Oru: yeah he is too cute :3 well I kinda knew the expiry date at the back of my head but I just somehow can’t find the opportunity to eat it :P home is well stocked with food lol. So yeah finally it’ll be too late so I can’t delay anymore ^^;;; the sticker definitely is a nice touch!
