Dorm Room Ramen

Back in the day I was living on campus during college, there was dorm room ramen.  I’m sure you sure ate it, too – it was ubiquitous.  It was in either highly toxic Styrofoam cups you microwaved, or little packages full of MSG and other preservatives that cost about $.05 to make.

Well, New Jersey based Sun Noodle is changing that and offering a much healthier (and yummier!) alternative.  Using CEO Hidehito Uki’s philosophy that “if good noodles are made, noodles will be accepted anywhere in the world as long as they're delicious," he has two new at-home ramen kits.  These MSG-free ramen kits – Shoyu Ramen and Miso Ramen, are being sold exclusively at Whole Foods Market stores in New York City. The products are refrigerated packs of fresh ramen noodles paired with concentrated soy sauce or miso base.  Hopefully we will be seeing these at Whole Food Markets outside New York soon!

It sounds tasty enough to take a trip down memory lane to try and make some new ramen memories!

Meanwhile, here’s a little background on Sun Noodles, the provider of quality noodles for the likes of David Chang’s Momofuku Noodle Bar and Ivan Orkin’s, Ivan Ramen and Slurp Shop.
