Your pantry staple could soon be a shelf mainstay to feast your eyes on. For its birthday this year, Nissin—originator of instant ramen and owner of Cup Noodle (Cup Noodles in the US) and Top Ramen—has teamed up with Japanese toymaker Bandai Spirits to create a DIY kit that is anything but bland.

The 1:1 Cup Noodle replica, which debuted earlier this month, is touted as a commodity that “can’t be [prepared] in three minutes.” That’s because the kit is an intricate model containing a chockful of pieces to put together—down to the packaging seals, logo, and signature golden fragmented lines that border the packet.

Aside from having fewer calories, the perk of this collector’s item is that you’ll be savoring it even longer, better appreciating what goes into the production of each cup. The model kit is created from a 3D scan of real Cup Noodles, ensuring that every ounce is a treat.

Try not to salivate as you decorate the bowl with realistic-looking plastic shrimp, “mystery meat” and egg bits. To make the ingredients look authentic, each piece is individually designed.

Finally, the setup is topped with an actual Cup Noodle seal for authenticity.

The kit, available at mass retailers, toy model stores, and e-commerce sites in Japan, is priced at JP¥2,420 (US$23). Not your typical instant ramen, but it offers a shelf life and satisfaction that can’t be matched.

Along with this version, Bandai Spirits also released a rare ‘Golden Cup Noodle Plastic Model’ for a raffle, with only 100 kits up for grabs.
