Regular cup noodle bowls not enough for you? Try this 2,000+ calorie instant yakisoba instead

Cup noodles are beloved worldwide. With so many varieties of noodles, including soba, ramen, udon, and yakisoba, combined with tons of different flavors like abalone and oyster stew, miso ginger, and pizza, and super easy, five-minute-or-less preparation, it’s easy to say why. They’re cheap, convenient, and darn delicious.

Except sometimes they don’t quite seem like enough food. Do you ever finish a bowl of cup noodles and think, “I’m still hungry”? Do you ever feel somewhat satisfied by a cup noodle bowl, but then an hour later you’re hungry again? Well, now there’s a solution: Peyoung’s Super Super Super Big Portion GIGAMAX Yakisoba.

Peyoung is a big dry food brand in Japan, and a core division of their products is instant yakisoba. Their ordinary size cup yakisoba comes in 120 gram packs, which might not be enough for some people, but even those with the heartiest of appetites will probably be completely satisfied with GIGAMAX’s whopping 439 grams of noodles.

How many calories are in 439 grams of yakisoba, including its sauce and vegetable toppings? 2,142 calories. That’s more than the recommended caloric intake for a whole day for most adults. If you’re on any kind of diet, don’t even look at this instant yakisoba, because it also contains over 235 grams of carbohydrates and over 120 grams of fat.

Seriously, this cup noodle is not for weenies. It may not sound like much, but considering GIGAMAX contains four standard servings of yakisoba, if you’re not prepared to eat like a yakisoba king, you won’t make it to the bottom of this bowl. It’s so big that it even says on the logo, “Please don’t eat more than one of these per day.” Challenge accepted.

It’s not hitting stores until June 18 in Kanto, and then July 9 in the rest of the Japan, so if you plan on taking on this giant serving of instant yakisoba, you have some time to train your stomach.

How much?

120g of fat? I bet most of that is palm oil too. I don't even eat the regular sized ones - pure junk food at its worse.

This kind of thing is one of the reasons why Japanese parents have to see their children die of diseases not common if at all existent in the ancestry.

I tried the smaller size Peyoung instant yakisoba. Not recommended. I like real yakisoba, but my stomach was not happy at all with the Peyoung instant stuff.

Many of my coworkers eat this junk for lunch everyday, then go outside for their cigarettes and canned coffee. They all have that sunken, pallid look of someone about to shuffle off this mortal coil.

Gross. I actually like the occasional instant yakisoba, but I usually feel sick after anything more than regular size.

I'm sometimes shocked at the level of pasta and bread eating here. Only time I eat pasta is in spaghett, tuna salad or the rare okinokiyaki visit. I really don't get the obsession with noodles.

 I really don't get the obsession with noodles.

Oh, and fried chicken thigh parts too.
