A few interesting and creative recipes for instant Ramen noodles, whether you are surviving the zombie apocalypse or college

The cardboard blocks of noodles and their accompanying magical flavor packets when combined with water and heat…produce a treat that even a mother can love. These life sustaining bricks can be had for as little as 10 cents apiece when on sale and will last well into the next ice age if stored correctly.

I literally have several cases of these things in my closet that we use for side dishes or a cheap lunch. They are also great to add to your food storage plan as long as you will have the water to rehydrate their cardboard behinds…I can’t see anyone ever trying to eat these in their brick form.

Like all underrated survival foods Top Ramen has a website, Nissin foods produced these bricks at an alarming rate and continues to pump them out so drunk college kids don’t starve to death.

I can honestly say you are missing out if you have never had Top Ramen…go out today and pick up a few at your local supermarket for a few pennies and at worst you will have something you can use as a coaster if it turns out you don’t like them (I can’t imagine anyone not liking these). They are loaded with sodium so take it easy if you have high blood pressure or something like that.
