Cup Noodle”Nissin”scoring table

ease of making is evaluated by a deduction method from 10 points.

①If the waiting time after adding hot water is 5 minutes or more, 2 points will be deducted.

②If it is difficult to open, 2 points will be deducted.

③If there are 2 or more bags of ingredients and soup, 2 points will be deducted.

④If the required amount of hot water is 400cc or more, 2 points will be deducted.

⑤If hot water drainage or hot water replacement is required, 2 points will be deducted.


The evaluation with “amount of ingredients” and “ease of making” is high.
But I have the impression that the “texture of noodles” has a low rating.
