An ancient Chinese custom states that if you save someone’s life, you are thereafter responsible for it. Well, honestly, I have no idea if that is a real custom or not. They said that in an a episode of Bewitched I saw once. I think they did this one on Lavern and Shirley, too.
And anyway, if it was true then the CEO of Nissin would be sending me checks weekly, because that’s dude’s products pretty much kept me alive in college. Exhibit A:
Well, I was more of a Top Ramen man, myself. I can’t imagine why though, as I sit here eating my Cup O’ Noodles–this is clearly a superior product. Not only does it come with it’s own container, but each serving comes complete with 6 dehydrated peas, corn kernels, and carrot shards. That’s six units a piece!!
Here’s the back of the box:
Lots of text, and yet I am pretty sure this is the first item I’ve consumed that did not have a URL on its package. Seriously, I am searching everywhere for one, but as far as I can see there’s OH MY GOD I just this second realized that the name of this product is “Cup Noodles”. There is no “O’” in “Cup O’ Noodles”! WTF universe?! My entire life is predicated on a lie.
Rating: Unlike Snickers, which tasted different than I remembered, Cup mmrgh Noodles is pretty much exactly as I recall. Of course, given the fact that I ate approximately one infinity packages of Top Raman over a four year period, I’m guessing that there are large portions of my memory devoted to the stuff (and explains why I cannot remember my son’s middle name). That said, it’s somewhat less satisfying when eaten at a desk during a work break than it is when eating at 2:15 AM after smoking a bowl. Also, as you get older, you just become less and less inclined to voluntarily ingest sodium tripolyphoshate. Fun fact, for you youngsters out there. 65¢/$1
