Allergens: shrimp, wheat, egg, dairy, soy, chicken Processed in a facility that also processes crab Cooking time: 3 minutes To start 2023, we’re riding the Kimetsu no Yaiba (鬼滅の刃) wave and still enjoying this already cult anime. With this unique collaboration, Nissin delivered something new and exciting for one of their classic recipes. W-dashi (two kinds of bonito) soup stock is used to give the soup a rich and deep flavor. With this, the kitsune udon noodles (きつねうどん) feature 100% whole soybean flakes made using the same process as that used by tofu makers. It’s a quite unique combination with lovely flavors and aromas. This cup is perfect for you to start the year with a healthy and heartwarming cup of noodles!

Sangaria Mikkuchu Juchi (みっくちゅじゅーちゅ) is one of them! This typical drink from Osaka contains 500ml of mixed fruit juice. It’s made with 20% fruit juice from a blend of five typical fruits (orange, apple, pineapple, peach, and banana) traditionally found at mixed juice shops around the city.

More than famous actually, as the city is associated with this traditional street food, often found in the streets along the Dotonbori river. Unfortunately, you can't bring takoyaki back home as souvenirs from Japan, which is precisely where this snack comes in! After a lot of trial and error, Idea Package (アイデアパッケージ) have created an ultra-realistic "Pachimon Takoyaki"! It looks exactly like a small takoyaki. The moist texture of the takoyaki soaked in sauce is just like the outer layer of a takoyaki without the inner batter.
