Those spongy lumps of uncertain origin in instant cup noodles? Turns out consumers in Japan love them just as much as the main attraction.

Nissin Food Products is now selling the lumps on their own as "mystery meat,” a term popularized by customers of the cheap, quick meals.

Each 200-gram box — or the equivalent of 47 cup noodles’ worth of the chunks — retails for ¥650 ($4).
