If you're a long-time fan of this quick and tasty instant ramen, you might be in for a surprise – the old cups were never meant for the microwave, but most of us have probably nuked them anyway.

Big news for Cup Noodles fans! Starting in 2024, Cup Noodles is getting a makeover, and the highlight is that their new cups are microwavable. The reason for the change? Cup Noodles is going green! They're swapping out the old polystyrene cups (you might know it as Styrofoam) for eco-friendly paper cups made from recycled materials. 


They're on a mission to reduce carbon emissions by 30% by 2030 and reach carbon neutrality by 2050. It's a big step toward being more environmentally conscious.

These new cups are made from 40% recycled fiber, and the sleeve is 100% recycled paper. No more plastic wrap either. Plus, the elimination of polystyrene means the whole Cup Noodles range will be plastic-free.

Kudos to Nissin Foods for their commitment to sustainability. But here's the fun part: you can finally microwave your Cup Noodles without worry. The new paper cups are microwave-safe, so you can enjoy your favorite instant ramen in just 2 minutes and 15 seconds. It's all about convenience.

Look out for these new eco-friendly, microwaveable cups in early 2024. They promise the same great taste and iconic look but with added sustainability and microwave-friendly ease. Cup Noodles is serving up deliciousness with a side of Earth-friendliness!
