Ramen in the Wikipedia

All you’ve ever wanted to know about ramen is posted here in the Wikipedia. There is, of course, a link to the “Official Ramen Homepage”.

Excerpt:

“Despite some health concerns, ramen is a popular food item among college students due to its ease of preparation and extremely low cost—as of 2004, one packet could be bought for as little as 10-15 U.S. cents. Ramen is also very resistant to spoilage and can be easily prepared with boiling water, making it a favorite of backpackers.”
