Nissin Foods® Introduces First-Ever Soupless Cup Noodles to Fans Across America: Cup Noodles® Stir Fry
(Gardena, Calif. – Aug. 5, 2019) – Today Nissin Foods, the creator of instant ramen, announces the newest addition to the company’s beloved Cup Noodles brand in the U.S.: Cup Noodles Stir Fry. As the first soupless offering from the brand, Cup Noodles Stir Fry was inspired by the rising popularity of Asian dishes from around the world. The flavorful noodle meal comes in a microwavable cup and is ready in only four minutes, giving consumers the chance to enjoy an authentic stir fry-style meal on-the-go, without extra preparation – adding to the Cup Noodles portfolio of convenient and delicious meals.
“At Nissin Foods, we value consumer feedback and are always looking to deliver new and exciting taste experiences to our growing fan base. After learning from consumers that they loved the idea of bringing Cup Noodles and stir fry flavors together, we knew we had to deliver,” said Jackie Park, Vice President of Marketing for Nissin Foods. “With the introduction of Cup Noodles Stir Fry, fans have yet another delicious reason to keep coming back to the Cup Noodles brand.”
Cup Noodles Stir Fry is making history in the U.S. as the first Cup Noodles product that is not a soup. This product lineup is the newest offering from Cup Noodles since the 2017 launch of Cup Noodles Very Veggie, the first instant noodle cup with one full serving of vegetables. Cup Noodles Stir Fry comes in three exciting flavors, including Korean BBQ, Teriyaki Beef, and vegetarian friendly Sweet Chili, all of which are free of added MSG. Additionally, to create a seamless meal experience from start to finish, each package includes a unique variety of high-quality vegetables for added flavor and texture.
Cup Noodles Stir Fry can be found in Walmart stores nationwide beginning in September and in additional retailers in December.
