ZenPop Ramen Unboxing Posted in: Reviews
Love Japanese ramen? If so ZenPop offers the perfect subscription box for you which is filled with ramen packs straight from Japan. Each of the ZenPop boxes is filled with an assortment of 9 delicious instant ramen packs that can be made in just a few minutes by adding hot water but are way more delicious than the regular instant ramen you typically can find outside of Japan. Within the ramen pack, you will find noodle varieties like Udon, Soba, Ramen, and Yakisoba.
ZenPop offers the option of a one time purchase of the ramen pack without a subscription for $29.50 or if you sign up for a 3 month subscription the price is $28.00 per box. For those interested in not just ramen, ZenPop also offers a box of 2-3 bowls of noodles plus 6-10 Japanese sweets.

My ZenPop ramen box was outstanding, all the ramen, soba, udon and yakisoba packages very delicious. I really appreciated that the box contained an information sheet that included a short description of each type of noodles a list of ingredients along with the cooking instructions. Each ramen pack makes a filling meal, but particularly some of the larger noodle packages will leave you full. For all, you ramen lovers outside of Japan, rejoice – ZenPop ramen pack is such a convenient way to get ramen sent directly to your home.
