TOKYO, Jan 13 (Bernama) — Nissin Foods Holdings Co. said Tuesday it will release in March a limited number of cup noodle products using 1-meter-long noodles to commemorate the centennial of the birth of Momofuku Ando, the late inventor of instant noodles and cup noodles 13, Japan’s Kyodo news agency reported.

The company said the noodles will be the longest ever to be used for a cup noodle product, surpassing the 70-centimeter buckwheat noodles in the ”Donbei tempura soba” — currently the longest for Nissin — and taking after the Chinese tradition of eating long noodle dishes on birthdays to symbolise longevity.
