Hey everyone! I’d like to announce the 4th Momofuku Ando Day here at The Ramen Rater will be on Monday, January 19th 2015. For those of you who aren’t aware, Momofuku Ando was the inventor of The instant noodle and he also started Nissin Foods. His first product, Chikin Ramen was sold in 1958. This year, I’m doing something a little different, and I’ll be featuring a couple video reviews dealing with Cup Noodles, which leads me to this year’s Momofuku Ando Day Photo contest! Here are the rules:
Take a picture involving Nissin Cup Noodles. Email your picture to [email protected]. On Tuesday, January 20th 2015, the best picture will be selected and will win a nice prize courtesy of Nissin Foods USA! Some things to note:
There’s only one prize – winner takes all. Here’s what you’ll get if you win: Nissin Foods USA has agreed to give out a small Nissin notebook, light up pen, mouse pad, reusable shopping bag, hacky sack, and products (case of Cup Noodles, Top Ramen, Big Cup Noodles, and Chow Mein). I’ll also toss in a The Ramen Rater Fan Club card, welcome letter and The Ramen Rater stickers!
- Contest is open only to residents of the United States
- Picture must be of Nissin Cup Noodle products
- If you win, you will be contacted via a reply to the email you sent (Email your picture to [email protected]) with the picture. I’ll ask your mailing address and then send you the membership to The Ramen Rater Fan Club myself and give Nissin Foods USA your address to send the prizes they are supplying.
- The top five pictures will be featured in a special post on January 20th, 2015!
- Be creative!
My wife as always will be picking her favorite. She won’t know who sent them or where they’re from. I’ll let you in on a secret too – she likes to see actual noodles in the pictures when she judges them, so keep that in mind.
So you’ve got until midnight on January 19th, 2015! Good luck!
