Making the Viral Frozen Ramen in Chicago

Making the Viral Frozen Ramen in Chicago
Winter Storm Heather, a potent low-pressure system, swept across the U.S. from January 13th to 16th, 2024, leaving a trail of icy conditions and snowfall. Pretty much everywhere in the US experienced blizzards, power outages, and extremely cold temperatures. 
Most of the PulseTV Office had a snow day and worked from the comforts of their homes since travel was dangerous. A few days after everything calmed down from the initial blast in the Chicago Suburbs, temperatures stabilized but was still -1 degrees, and maybe -20 with the wind chill. One night, I decided to try the viral #ramenchallenge trick I saw so much on TikTok!
I always have a few packets of ramen ready to go, and regularly use my Rapid Ramen Cooker (I've had this in my kitchen even before PulseTV started selling it!) so it was a no brainer. Want to make your own "frozen" ramen? Here are the steps.
  1. Prepare your Ramen. Get out the noodle block and place it in the Rapid Ramen Cooker. It's square shape accommodates the noodles better than a round bowl!
  2. Add Water to the fill line. I love that you don't have to grab a measuring cup or guess how much water to add.
  3. Microwave 2-3 minutes. 
  4. Go outside and grab your chopsticks (or fork). Spin the noodles around your utensil and hold it up somehow - use a mason jar, boxes, tupperware... something so that you create a little sculpture. Fluff it up or add more noodles to your liking.
  5. Wait for it to freeze! It was super cold, so must have frozen solid for me within 10 minutes. I'm not sure of the exact time, cause I was NOT waiting around out there!
But it was a fun experiment! Does it have to be done using Shark Tank's Rapid Ramen Microwave Cooker? Absolutely not - but I use that thing all the time anyway! I recommend this as the easiest way to make microwaved ramen, hands-down. But for this frozen trick, you can use any bowl, plate, or takeout container.
That brings me to another idea - you don't even have to do this with ramen. You can do the exact same thing with a plate of spaghetti and meatballs! Whatever you do, just make sure it's cold enough.
Overall, it was a fun little video to shoot, and even got a few laughs out of making a blooper video (See Below). For more fun content make sure you Follow/Heart/Subscribe to us on all our social media platforms like TikTok and YouTube
