Tips for Buying EarthBound

July 1st, 2010 | Images, Itoi, Uncommon Knowledge

A while back I posted about how Shigesato Itoi had a special, limited-edition type of curry. I found out recently that he also had a limited run of instant ramen:

Here’s another pic of it

I don’t have any details to go with this discovery, but if anyone comes across any more info, let me know!

That red half-circle on the lid and side is most definitely the NISSIN label.

I recognize that big-eared thing in the cup from his website.

Were those submitted to the site or did you find them? This site looks like it might have them, but I don’t speak Japanese unfortunately.

I used to eat ramen a lot but I ate it so much I grew tired of it and don’t really like it any more. Despite that I’m curious if this ramen tastes different then regular ramen.

I’ve never had ramen noodles :/

On a side note, how does everyone pronounce it? Ray-man or rah-men?

I wish my local store had Itoi ramen instead of Maruchan.

Is it Kraken flavored?

PK Saturn said on Jul. 2, 2010

Rah-men not Rayman

There’s one of these for sale on YAJ right now:

Looks like the same pics. WARNING: If purchased, DO NOT EAT. These are old.

MG said on Jul. 2, 2010

How old?

Hm, I certainly wouldn’t mind resorting to basically living on that type of ramen for the duration of my uni education. Admittedly, being a crosspromotion it probably wouldn’t have been quite as cheap (assuming Japan is anything like anywhere else) and therefore would have defeated the purpose of living on it alone. 😛

Actually you can eat them. Dried noodles have a shelf-life of like 1-2 decades. Sometimes, if stored properly they can last indefinitely.. Depending on storage conditions and the fact it is sealed would be fine to consume, however, instant ramen tastes better if prepared before the 6th month mark.

Eveything tastes better with Itoi on it 😛
