If making Cup o'Noodles was a bike forums thread:

[newuserbikeguy] Hey guys, new to the forum! Just making some cup o'noodles and heard conflicting reports, should you fill the styrofoam cup ALL the way to the fill line with hot water? That seems like a lot. Also, what temperature should I use?

[mr.straight-laced] Yes. That's why it's there.

[Controvesial_Campy_Karl] No way, maybe 3-4 mm below for best results. Otherwise it's soupy

[Capn-Obvi] [quote: No way, maybe 3-4 mm below for best results. Otherwise it's soupy] isn't it soup?

[Fancy.Equip.Bill] As far as the temp goes, I use the 190F faucet I installed. Works great

[Token_retro_grouch] Hey, @fancy.Equip.Bill, must be nice! The rest of us use an old tea kettle

[Token_retro_grouch] Cup o'Noodles are just Ramen in a cup. Why not just get a bowl and eat ramen?

Waxed ramen cups are cleaner and better for the environment.

I didn't know exactly how this would happen, but I KNEW this would morph in to a wax vs oil, chain lube thread!

Those styrofoam cups will explode if they get too hot. Just get old skool Ramen for 30 cents a pack.

Best served in a steel bowl.

Ignore the cooking directions. Dial that microwave up to 1200 Watts until those guads are noodles.

I don't like Cup o' Noodles. Anyone who eats Cup o' Noodles is stupid.

The cup is just a solution looking for a problem.

Why are the manufacturer's forcing me to boil water?

My average speed increased 2 mph when I started eating Cup o' Noodles.

The cup adds too much rotational weight.

Try something different and pour some hot chocolate on your Cuo o'Noodles for some very unique taste.

Ok back from Giant Tiger and bought a bunch of Mr Noodles cups. Got the environmentally friendly waxed cups not the nasty petroleum plastic things. 77 cents each. xD

That would be considered doping.

Cup of Noodles is only NSF and is not sold by locally owned grocery stores suitable for support from Real Cyclists.

Besides, Real Cyclists eat pizza and drink beer for both pleasure and sustenance. Only cheapskates and the unworthy would admit to voluntarily eating cheap noodles, food snobs brag about their noodle dishes.

NOTE:
NSF is the acronym for Noodle Shaped Food; of course all tne Kool Kidz already knew that.

Bulk Store Oddities would be just as sufficient
