How to eat raw noodles

One day, when I was grade 4, my friend Shinichi and I were playing video games at his house.

Shinichi and I went to the kitchen. He grabbed a package of instant noodles from the cupboard.

He crushed the noodles by punching the package, and opened it.

After putting seasoning into the bag, he shook the bag. 

He said, "It's yummy, you should try it!"

I ate it and I liked it.

I felt like I was doing something bad, because I thought you were supposed to boil the noodles first.

These raw instant noodle had a junky and cheap taste, but 9-year old me thought it was pretty good.

And oddly enough, this was a popular snack amongst my friends.

Here is how to eat raw instant noodles...

1. Crush the noodles

Before opening the package, make a fist and crush the noodles.

If you like larger pieces, then just punch three times.

2. Open the bag.

3. Take out the soup packet.

4. Sprinkle the contents of the soup packet into the bag of noodles.

Note: Do not put everything in, as it will be too salty.

5. Close the bag and shake it.

You can coat the noodle pieces with the seasoning by shaking thoroughly.

6. Just eat it by hand.

It tastes like a snack called Baby Star Ramen.

Have you ever eaten it? This snack is quite popular in Japan.


What situation is suitable for eating raw instant noodles?

It might be good for emergency situations like earthquake, hurricane, and flood when you don’t have access to hot water.

You can eat raw instant noodles as emergency food or snack.

But don't use too much soup packet. It will be too salty and you will get thirsty quickly.
