An instant noodles product released only in the Shikai region by Green Turtle Foods. The product, Turtle Jelly Noodle, featured an abundant amount of turtle jelly toppings, claimed to be a miraculous ingredient for beauty enhancement. Advertised with the slogan, "take off 10 years just with a single mouthful…", the product was slated for national release until it was plagued by a series of strange events wherein heavy consumers disappeared, mumbling words to the effect of, "I want to go back to the sea."
These incidents triggered a full recall and nearly resulted in the product's cancellation. Huge losses brought about reduced production and a tainted brand image that forced the company to reconsider the products nationwide release.
However, to this day, there are several who think highly of "the ultimate local snack." What's more, a shortage of the product has resulted in a heated shopping frenzy among beauty-conscious housewives.
The television advert featuring Naoko Mihama, the missing TV reporter during her early years as a pop idol, continues to enjoy limited airplay in certain areas.
