When you hear the word "ramen," what do you think of? If you are a Westerner, chances are you think of dried noodles with some strange powder, served in a styrofoam cup. You pour boiling water into the cup, wait for three minutes, and serve. Ramen is also usually inexpensive, leading to the quote above where having to eat ramen on a daily basis is an implication that you're close to broke. Which companies and brands you see most often will depend on the country you're from:

There are dozens of companies creating literally hundreds of different sorts, with at least one representative from every Oriental country. Step into an Asian (or even a general) supermarket, and you will see an entire aisle devoted to these noodles, usually spanning both sides. Dehydrated noodles exists for Indonesian ''mi goreng'', Vietnamese ''pho'', Japanese ''udon'' and ''yakisoba'', Thai ''tom yum'' and ''pad Thai'', Korean ''jjajang'', Chinese ''wor wonton'', and so forth. ''Udon'' is an odd case in that the noodles do not dehydrate properly, so they are normally shipped undehydrated and stored refrigerated, separate from the other types of ramen, or simply vacuum-packed, though in this case it's better to check the expiration date carefully � they have somewhat shorter shelf life. Nevertheless, preparation techniques are the same as their dehydrated kin.

* In Creator/AAPessimal's ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' and ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' crossover ''Fanfic/TheManyWorldsInterpretation'', Ponder Stibbons is introduced to instant ramen in a laser research lab at Caltech by Leslie Winkle. He tastes them and instantly realises there are Dibblers on Roundworld. He deduces this because like a Dibbler sausage, you can't believe what you're eating, you sense the plastic pot would be more nutritious and less harmful than the contents, you have suspicions as to what nameless stuff goes into it, and yet knowing all this, ''you still want to eat the stuff''.

* There is a video out there (on YouTube) where purely for scientific interest, two willing volunteers prepare and consume a twelve-year-old Pot Noodle found in the forgotten dark depths of a food cupboard. What worried them was that while it ''looked'' grey and unnappetising, it still ''tasted'' broadly as if it were still fresh. Preservatives are there for a purpose, it seems...

* In ''{{Uglies}}'', they have tons of types of dehydrated meals, many involving noodles, which are all written in CamelCase, and so would all be WikiWord-ed here.
* In ''TheTomorrowSeries'', [[CityMouse city girl]] Fi is entirely unfamiliar with Two-Minute Noodles. Jack tells her about him subsisting on Two-Minute Noodles for a whole week when living with his father before the war.

* An early episode of ''{{ER}}'' had Dr. Ross catching Dr. Carter preparing to feast on a cup of instant noodles, despite being from a ''very'' wealthy family. Turns out, his family [[RichesToRags cut him off]] due to a disagreement.

* Implied in a few NPC thoughts in ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou'' -- they don't specify, but 100-yen ramen is ''probably'' not a fresh bowl from Ramen Don's. Incidentally, that very shop does offer insta-noodles in exchange for a 100-yen ''pin'' (cash not accepted for this product); unlike Ken Doi's other fare, this one is no good for StatGrinding as it only boosts your sync rate.
