Noodling Around

Maybe it’s because I’m always hungry but I’ve noticed a flourish of instant noodle products, not only strange new flavors but fan-boy products, too. Check it out:

Imagine you’re in a heated battle in WoW and can’t peel yourself away from the computer, not even to unload yourself. But then your stomach starts growling and you begin feeling faint. What do you do?! With this handy-dandy machine, you won’t even need to run to the kitchen to boil water. Just pop in a coin and out comes a Styrofoam cup. Place in under the hot-water spout and in 3 minutes lunch is served!

This Tokyo Toy Show favorite challenged visitors to put together all the pieces of the ramen before the clock runs out. In the same amount of time it takes to cook, you’re given 3 minutes to neatly stack the pieces of egg, noodles, and tiny slices of fishcake into the cup. When time runs out, the pieces pop out like New Years confetti. Oh boy. Can you say nerve-wracking?

And then there’s this game….

If you’re lucky, you’ll find this at your local Japanese game center. As soon as you drop in a coin, the giant lid opens and you have to toss in as many balls as possible. Sorry, a winning score won’t reap a lifetime supply of ramen. You’ll have to win the lottery for that.

Personally, I don’t like playing with my noodles. They’ve been dehydrated for one purpose and one purpose only – to jump in my belly! \(^o^)/
