Three cheese instant ramen hits the market
Ramen has caught on big in many cities here in America. New York City even went through a ramen boom a few years back, with a few popular restaurants' customers waiting more than an hour to get a table. The Japanese love their ramen too, and to appease the always demanding public, NISSIN, the company known for their Cup Noodles, has come up with a new "Three Cheese Chicken Ramen."
Instant chicken ramen has been around since 1948, and it was the first ever packaged instant ramen. More than 65 years later, it's still going strong, though constantly evolving. Just yesterday, a brand new flavor came out, a chicken ramen with mozzarella, cheddar and gouda cheese. Cheese and ramen may not sound harmonious, but according to a ramen-loving reviewer, the mix goes surprisingly well together.
"I was apprehensive at first, but after waiting three minutes after pouring in some boiling water, I put in the cheese powder. The cheese melted into the hot soup, creating a special flavor. The cheese and soy sauce based broth blended together perfectly." Deliciousness for only 199 yen, or 2 USD.
So there you have it. Three cheese chicken ramen. On a side note, the man who started NISSIN lived until he was 96 years old. According to the man himself, his secret to long life was a simple one. "I eat instant ramen every day and play golf!"
