'Ramnuts' Are Ramen Doughnuts, And Yes, They Actually Exist In Real Life (Photos)


A couple years ago, it was all about the Cronut.

From there, we were introduced to a handful of mouth-watering food concoctions like deep-fried guacamole wontons and glazed cannoli doughnuts. This time, it's all about Ramnuts, doughnuts made using ramen noodles as a base.

This rare food mashup is creating quite the buzz for itself after the OC Night Market announced it would be serving Ramnuts from June 5 to June 7 at the Foodbeast booths.

Now we know these actually exist, but who is the mastermind behind the Ramnut?

According to Bustle, Josh Scherer of the food blog Culinary Bro-Down is the man responsible for this madness.

If you're wondering what a Ramnut tastes like, think funnel cake but slightly different. The ramen noodles are soaked in horchata. Then, they're deep fried and filled with cream cheese right before being coated with powdered sugar.

What more could you want? Not to mention, they're highly customizable as far as toppings and flavors are concerned. Patrons will be able to choose between vanilla, cream cheese or chocolate cream fillings as well strawberry, chocolate or cream cheese frosting.

Check out the photos below for a closer look!

Behold, the Ramnut.

It's the brainchild of Josh Scherer of Culinary Bro-Down.

It's a doughnut made using ramen noodles as a base, and there's a slight chance you might actually like it!

I mean, who wouldn't like horchata-soaked ramen noodles filled with chocolate and topped with strawberry glaze?!

If you're looking to try this new food trend, you might want to head over to the OC Night Market.

In case you were wondering, this is how a Ramnut is made.
