Foodie Friday ~ Name Your Favorite Instant Noodle

The world will always love, honor, and remember Momofuku Ando (1910 - 2007). He's the man who invented the Ramen instant noodle.


Fascinating food history:

Instant noodles were first marketed in 1958.

Cup of noodles didn't come along until 1971.


My not so fascinating life history facts:
♦ I was born in 1955. Can't remember when I started eating the instant noodles, but it must have been after the year 2000 and it must have been because one of my daughters who love all things Asian was eating them. I know I didn't eat them during my childhood, during my years at the University of Miami (the 70s), during the first 25 years of my marriage (2001 is when my last child was born). I did the grocery shopping most of the time and my husband shopped every now and then. So it had to be one of my kids that introduced this food into our home. Can't recall. Just know that instant noodles got added to our grocery list one day and we've been eating them ever since.
Said all that to say this.
♦ When it comes to the selection of Ramen noodles at the local grocery stores, there isn't really a vast range of products to choose from. Pretty much it's the popular name brand of the instant ones in the cup or the ones in the little package. That particular food is so cheap you don't need to buy the “generic brand” to save money. That was the inventor's purposeful good intention. He wanted a food that was super cheap that could feed the masses. (Gleaned that food fact from a documentary I watched on TV, several years back.)

Who would have thought that someone could publish a blog with nothing but reviews of Ramen noodles?

The blog is called … what else? The Ramen Rater.

When I first saw it, I thought:
Oh come on!! How many packaged instant noodles can there possibly be for you to rate them?

Uuuhhh … try 2000+.

Seriously. His Tumblr blogs posts go back to 2012 but the guy's reviews go back to date back to 2002!! TheRamenRater.com
(Maybe that was also the year I started eating them. (O.o) (???))
