New Zero Calorie Ramen to Use Recycled Plastic

Several ramen companies in Korea have joined together and are working on what they claim will "reduce Western fattiness and beautify our cities". Their solution? Ramen noodles made from recycled plastic. It sounds odd and maybe not flavorful, so I'll just quote them, "plastic is heated and molded into noodles. During this process it is infused with best flavors for enjoyable tasting. The person will not digest this noodles and so, no fat gaining!". They further claim that "using old plastic bottles and bags will increase beauty in all cities".

No release date was given for the new noodles, although I'm betting on Earth Day. Personally I think the idea is great and can't wait to try them.
