Fans of the Carl Reiner/Steve Martin comedy classic The Jerk will undoubtedly recall “Pizza in a Cup,” the fictional dish beloved by the film’s main character Navin Johnson. I’m sure there have been multiple attempts to capture the appeal of Pizza in a Cup since then, and now we have the Nissin Tomato Potato Cheese Pizza Cup Noodle.
The latest new flavor in the brand’s Cup Noodle line, the Nissin Tomato Potato Cheese Pizza Cup Noodle combines a creamy, cheesy tomato basil soup base with potato, cabbage, bacon-style pork bits, and squares of real cheddar cheese. Honestly, it doesn’t seem too much like authentic pizza to me, but it’s still pretty close to the Pizza in a Cup dream.
Nissin Tomato Potato Cheese Pizza Cup Noodle will reportedly hit select grocery store shelves in a week’s time, on November 13th, 2017. And watch for the Opti-Grab to come out sometime in the spring of next year.
