    when I was in college, I used to buy them by the case, and sell them at a 100% mark-up to people at like 1 in the morning. it was great, I was like the floor's crack dealer.

    They're better if they are smashed in side the packet and then shaken with the flavoring. I used to snack on them like that when I didn't have time to really eat before class @ my first college in 98 / 99.

    All of the crack heads and college students should mourn this day as the inventor of the one food item that gets both groups of people by has passed. A sad day indeed.

    I strayed away from the noodles for a bit due to their similar smell to all of the funerals I was attending at the time. They're pretty damn good though and while they didn't serve as my backbone in college I know many for whom it did.

    Wow, it sucks that he died of a heart attack. Not the best of endings for such a great man. Still he has helped many and that remains important. :D 

    So long and thanks for all the noodles!

    Those things are so loaded with sodium, no wonder he died of a heart attack. Heck I think one package of Raman noodles with the seasoning exceeds my daily allowance of sodium.

    It's something that college kids, and most people under 40 would never worry about though.

    I think tonight I'll have some Ramen in honor of his life's work. Man, everyone who has gone to college should thank him for the noodles that truly have fed the masses.

    It's weird. Apparently they are terrible for you yet he was 96 years old when he died.

    I wonder if the guy who invented Kraft Dinner is still alive?
