At Chikin Ramen in Osaka, you can enjoy a bowl of chicken ramen in its traditional noodle form, or as a scoop of flavored Japanese ice cream.
As a brand of instant noodles from Nissin, the Chikin Ramen Hyoko-Chan Soft Cream offers a new way to enjoy a meal that is traditionally served hot. Rather than being topped with sweet candy sprinkles, this savory chicken-flavored dessert is served with a sprinkle of crispy ramen noodles on top.
While unusual flavors of soda, potato chips and Kit-Kat chocolates are hugely celebrated in Japan, other cultures are beginning to look on with curiosity. As a staple for so many meat-eaters, soon, chicken-flavored ice cream has the potential to become the new vanilla.
