Though the clumps of meat in the noodles are known as “mystery meat” by fans, they’re actually pieces of flavored minced pork. But regardless of what anyone wants to call it, it’s a fact that they’re downright delicious. And for this special 45th anniversary version of the Big Cup Noodle, the extra addition of mystery meat will be accompanied by even more flavored pork, green onions, and red bell peppers.

Devoted fans will have to partake in this extravagant festival of meat, of course with their very own cup of the “mystery meat” noodles.
