You might want to check those expiration dates. The king of Rice-a-Roni died today at 92. I think his daughter said it best:
“He brought all these test products home,” his daughter said. “We ate these products until we were all sick of them.”
College students everywhere mourned by wearing black armbands and browning vermicelli in their studio apartments. The inventor of Top Ramen was unavailable for comment. But he probably would have said something about his product being America’s favorite ramen soup.
The trolley has rung its last bell. Ironically I had Rice-a-Roni fried rice just this evening before I heard the news. Godspeed, Vincent DeDomenico.
Exit question: why is Rice-a-Roni, the San Francisco treat, made in Chicago, IL? Another of life’s imponderables.
