Here's why packet ramen noodles are the best thing known to man

Ramen noodles are superior. Don't @ me.

This is the stuff that got you through college. It was the reason why you were able to afford to go to that concert last night. Yet, it doesn't get the credit it deserves. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, ramen noodles, the most under-appreciated food in the world.

Everybody has eaten ramen noodles before, but nobody seems to appreciate them. But no need to fear, all of that is about to change. Without further-a-do, here's why ramen noodles are the best thing known to man.

1: There are so many flavors

Believe me, there are more ramen noodle flavors than you could guess. And the great thing about having so many flavors is if you get bored with one, you can pick something else. Here are all the flavors of ramen noodles on Maruchan's website: Chicken, Chicken Mushroom, Creamy Chicken, Roast Chicken, Picante Chicken, Beef, Sriracha Chicken, Picante Beef, Roast Beef, Shrimp, Lime Shrimp, Lime Chili Shrimp, Chili, Chicken Tortilla, Pork, and Soy Sauce (there is also a 25% less sodium version of the beef and chicken flavors).

2: Different types of ramen

Of course, there are the typical ramen packets you can buy at the store for 50 cents, but there are also so many other different types! Allow me to explore all the different types of ramen for your convenience.

To start, there's the Gold series. The gold series is advertised on Maruchan's website as restaurant-quality ramen. This new series is the latest addition to its ramen fleet. The Gold series consists of two flavors: Soy Sauce and Spicy Miso.

Next is Yakisoba, which is made of Yakisoba noodles. This is served in a giant tub and doesn't contain any broth at all. There are a number of flavors of Yakishoba: Chicken, Cheddar Cheese, Spicy Chicken, Teriyaki Beef, Teriyaki Chicken, Korean BBQ, and Spicy Beef.



3: You can customize your ramen

Alright, say you get bored of every single flavor and type of ramen, and you are in desperate need of a solution. Here it is: add flavors! It's super easy to up your ramen game by simply adding herbs and spices to the mix.

My personal favorite is adding Montreal Steak Spice to the Beef Flavored ramen, with a little oregano. But, you can go further than that! You can go as far as adding eggs and real meat to your ramen to make a gourmet dinner, instead of a boring cup of noodles.

Surely, after that super convincing article, you will give credit to ramen on a daily basis, as if a ritual. But all jokes aside, this article took a surprising amount of time getting all the flavors of ramen in there, as well as getting all the types of ramen so I hope you enjoyed it. Now go do it, get some ramen in your life!

  • Have you tried the Gold Soy Sauce flavor? I’m a dedicated fan of Roast Chicken Ramen with spinach and rotisserie chicken. I bought the Gold Soy Sauce, but admit that I haven’t figured out what would be a good pairing for it... No one I know has tried it yet.

    • Annoyingly, I haven’t been able to find any of the gold ramen near me...

    • Not sure what country you are in, but Harris Teeter carries them in the area of the US I live in. (Pretty good odds Kroger would too. They usually have the same stuff)

  • Popular local Malaysian made ramen in chicken flavour which I pimped up with some leftover soy seasoned pork slices, stir fried baby bok choi and a fried egg to top it off.

  • Nissin Raoh makes a good meal. Add scallions, onions, sautéd spam. For that guilty pleasure, Demae Ramen! Just by itself.

  • My favorite ramen is tomato. I don’t think they do it in the US, but in Brazil is very common. Kids love it because it pretty much tastes like ketchup... especially if you do it like me and add extra ketchup to it. 😂

    We also have beans flavored ramen here - it is amazing.

    I don’t even remember which ones I used to eat in the US, but I loved them all. Ramen is the best.
