These Cup Noodle sodas look great (but sound gross)

We love trying new flavours, but sometimes you find yourself asking, is this safe? Much like the Coke plus Mentos scare, there was a rumour going around online some time ago that drinking fizzy drinks while eating instant noodles could cause your stomach to explode. Cup Noodle seems determined to challenge that myth head-on, now combining two of our favourite junk foods into what might be the most bizarre limited-edition snack ever.

To celebrate its 50th anniversary, Nissin Foods has launched a bold limited-edition range of cup noodle-themed sodas in Japan, available in Cup Noodle, Seafood Noodle, Curry and Chilli Tomato flavours. How mouthwatering that sounds will come down to the courage of individual tastebuds, but there's no denying that they're beautifully packaged, with the bottles faithfully replicating the packaging design of Cup Noodles products they're based on (for more packaging inspiration see our collection of standout packaging designs.)
