Take Two Minutes for Momofuku

Don't know who his is? Well, anyone who's been on a scout camp or has kids will know his invention...

Momofuku Ando, the Japanese inventor of instant noodles, has died aged 96. All hale the two minute noodle.

Favourite two minute noodle memories include:

  • the great debate - do you keep the soup or do you chuck it?
  • Adam Johnston throwing up two minute noodles on scout camp and frankly, if you put them back in the saucepan and fed it to a brownie, they would have been none the wiser
  • why do they taste better around a camp fire or in front of the footy rather than as a dinner mid week when you're living on your own?
  • Should Two Minute Noodle Prawn Flavour ever have made it to the supermarket shelves, I mean, really...
