Cup Noodle
Posted by keavdog on Saturday, October 3, 2020 8:00 PM

We have no food forum so here I am.  TB posted a link that inspired me... Cup Noodles no paint snap-tite kit.  Perfect for my wife - she's a Cup Noodle fan.  She built it in two days.  It's a really ingenious kit and super accurate - so here we go

Me and my wife doing stupid stuff

The model

Amazing kit - granted outside the norm, but super fun!

 

 

Thanks,

John

That's pretty cool John.  I was wondering if it came prepainted or if you had to paint it.

John, if you're cup noodle fans, check this out. I have no idea where you'd get one though.

its all molded in color plastic so no paint, no glue.  She put it together in a couple hours.

Thanks,

John

I'll bet first time I see these in a grocery (the food, not the noodles) I won't be able to resist getting some to see what the fuss is all about! Big Smile

Greg,

Cup Noodle was groundbreaking in 1971, but like vacuum tube TVs and lead based paint, it has been surpassed in the 21st century.  Try it if you must, but I warn you it’s not that great.  People here in Hawaii still buy it by the case though.  I have no idea why.

Now all there is to do is wait for Nissin Foods to send their assasin ninjas to silence my blasphemy.

Ha! That made me chuckle. Smile

Thanks for the product synopsis. and the taste disclaimer. I am forewarned, but still curious. Stick out tongue

Say, John, I'm confused about your pics. One shows a secure peel-back lid. Another shows a rolled-up lid. Third shows 'product' in the container. I presumed all three were the model, but how can one pic have the lid on and the next have it peeled back?

Curious minds and all that......

Oh, and clever tee-shirt. Smile

For me, this was college food.  Throw an egg in there and you have a meal!

Everything you see came in the kit.  The top is a resealable tacky Vinyl.  

Extremely well engineeered kit.

Thanks,

John

Yes, college dorm food, absolutely.  An egg?  I never thought of that.  Raw or cooked?  Sorry, my Japanese DNA resurfaced again!

Raw egg, add water and nuke in a bowl.   Egg poaches in the hot water.   Works with top Ramen maruchan Ramen etc

Thanks,

John
