    OSAKA (Kyodo) Momofuku Ando, the founder of Nissin Food Products Co. and inventor of instant ramen, died of heart failure Friday evening at a hospital in Ikeda, Osaka Prefecture, his family said. He was 96.

    Born on March 5, 1910, in Taiwan, Ando initially ran clothing companies in Taipei and Osaka while he was a student at Ritsumeikan University. In 1948, he founded the precursor to Nissin and in 1958 unveiled Chicken Ramen, the world's first instant noodle product.



    I gotta say I love me some ramen. I will be eating a bowl for him tonight.

    Where would college students who put beer before food be without him? Unable to chug with their buddies because of their empty stomach. I'm going dump a bowl out on the sidewalk in his memory.
