Headline: Inventor of instant noodles dies at 96

I can still vividly remember my first encounter with Ramen noodles. It was in Pittsburgh around 1979. One of my housemates was Chinese-American and showed me some packets which he cooked up in a couple of minutes.

I was hooked. I got him to order a case of them through his Dad. Back then they were a specialty item.

Not now.

My kids love them. And they're cheap.
