Changes To The Ramen Rater’s Top Tens

Changes To The Ramen Rater's Top Tens

A special note about Top Ten lists going forward

After long consideration and thought over the years, I’ve made a decision about the Top Ten lists. Are they going away? No, absolutely not. Top Ten lists going forward are going to have only one entry per company. I’ve had many Top Ten lists (this one is a good example) that have multiple wins by the same company. This list today is the end of that. You’d think ten spots would be enough to cover a lot of stuff, but I find it more and more restrictive, hence this new policy. Don’t worry – other varieties by the company will most likely be mentioned in the video. I think this change does two things. First, it provides more visibility for market diversity. Two, it provides more options for people to find products. This will start with the next Global Top Ten list which should be debuting on Monday, April 22nd, 2024. I should note that this will not apply to the Spiciest and Bottom Ten lists, as those are a bit different. Global, Cups, Bowls, and Trays as well as country-specific lists will be affected going forward. There are some instances this may not work. The USA list might be a little difficult as I don’t know that there are ten different companies to select from. This is going to be a big change, so we shall see how it goes. Global, cups and bowls definitely will adhere to this new policy. ...see full post

I want to thank the companies and individuals who have sent me varieties I could not easily get. Incidentally, all of these are reviewed the same way – I follow instructions to the letter and taste each variety before I add any external garnish.. I figure that a naked bowl of noodles every day would be quite boring, plus it has given many ideas on what to add to them. As always, if you are an instant noodle company  or a reader who wants me to try one that I’ve not, please contact me. With that, let’s have a look at the top ten for 2018 – the finest and most memorable instant noodles I’ve tried. ...see full post
