This is not a drill! Cup Noodles is finally getting into the breakfast business.
The famed microwavable ramen we’ve grown to love has gotten a morning makeover, dubbed “breakfast ramen.” While the company is not exactly serving up pancakes, they have developed a product with the flavors of some American staples. Cup Noodles Breakfast blends the taste of pancakes, sausage, maple syrup, and eggs in a savory sauce that only requires water and four minutes in the microwave. These breakfast-flavored noodles are perfect for early mornings in the office or when you don’t feel like the hassle of pancake batter and skillets.
Nissin Foods, Cup Noodles’ parent company, says the concept is the first of its kind within the ramen world. However, they are standing by the breakfast noodles and even suggest adding a few drops of syrup or hot sauce into the broth for maximum flavor.
“By adding Cup Noodles Breakfast to our line-up, we are truly feeding cravings around the clock morning, noon, night, or late night,” stated Priscila Stanton, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Nissin Foods USA.
Cup Noodles Breakfast is just the latest unique flavor that has incorporated sweetness. In 2021, they debuted the pumpkin spice flavor to commemorate the company’s 50th anniversary. That also marked the first option in its limited edition line, with Breakfast only being the second notch in this collection.
Cup Noodles Breakfast was rolled out on Wednesday but only in Walmart stores and Walmart online. However, only select stores carry the special edition ramen with a suggested retail of only $1.18.
