In 2000, Japan voted instant noodles as their top invention!
Although the country was also responsible for such inventions of the 1900s such as the Walkman, small cameras, computer games, and Pokemon, Ramen noodles were voted as the best idea from their country!
The #2 spot went to karaoke! After its conception, the food industry in Japan thought the food was just a fad that would die out over time. However, instant noodles are one of the most popular food items in the world today! In fact, instant noodles are Japan’s best exports! If you're a college student, we're pretty sure you agree.
