Photo by © Grape What Mini Cup Noodles Look Like in the Hands of Rui Hachimura 2020-11-04 Wed 2020-11-04 Wed Nissin’s Original Cup Noodles was introduced in 1971 and has since spread around the world. But Nissin realized that, like most things, instant ramen is not one-size-fits-all. Hence the addition of their Big and Mini size Cup Noodles to their product line-up. And more than a few of us may even feel that the Mini size fits in our hand just right. People come in different shapes and sizes and that’s just nature. But which size is suitable for someone who’s more than 2 meters tall? Luckily, Nissin carried out some tests and made the results public. What does it look like when a pro basketball player holds Mini Cup Noodles? Nissin got some help from Rui Hachimura for their photo op. If you don’t already know, Hachimura was picked 9th overall by the Washington Wizards in the 2019 NBA Draft. He’s the second Japanese-born player to be drafted into the NBA, after Yasutaka Okayama. What’s more, he made history as the first Japanese player to ever be drafted in the 1st round. Hachimura first appeared in a commercial for Cup Noodles last July. Some viewers may have wondered about the actual size of Cup Noodles in Hachimura’s hands. So Nissin obliged, recently updating their official Cup Noodles Instagram account (cupnoodle.jp) with the following photos. Don't forget to click on the arrow on the right to view the second one too. この投稿をInstagramで見る 身長が203センチもあるバスケの八村塁選手がカップヌードルを持つと「ミニに見える」と僕の中で話題だったので、カップヌードル「ミニ」を持つとどう見えるのか検証しました。八村選手、ご協力ありがとうございました。 #八村塁 @rui_8mura #日清 #日清食品 #NISSIN #カップヌードル #謎肉 #麺スタグラム #cupnoodle #cupnoodles #ラーメン #ラーメン部 #ラーメン好き #ラーメン好きな人と繋がりたい #ramen #🍜 #今日のごはん #たべものぐらむ #たべすたぐらむ #食べるの好きな人と繋がりたい #食べるの大好き #noodle #noodles #ラーメンインスタグラマー #麺活 #麺好き #麺 カップヌードル(@cupnoodle_jp)がシェアした投稿 - 2020年11月月1日午後6時00分PST Well, they both look mini right?
