Not only college students, but families on a tight budget!
Readers Digest used to give a $10 prize for the best suggestion.
That was in the days of train travel.
So, I wrote (expecting to win).... dry brewed coffee somehow, Put it in single serving packets on trains so people could just add hot water to make a cup.
No, I didn't win. But somebody sure found out how to dry brewed coffee! I was robbed!

The inventor of instant noodles, Momofuku Ando, has died in Japan, aged 96, of a heart attack.
He developed his first instant noodles, Chicken Ramen, in 1958.
His most famous product, Cup Noodle, was released in 1971.
Its taste and ease of preparation - adding hot water to dried noodles in a waterproof polystyrene container - have made it popular around the world.
No glib comment here... this guy helped feed millions of college students for near past 50 years. I can't think of anyone I know who has never had a bowl of instant ramen noodles at least once in their life. Ford, Edison, Bell, and a few others ever had as much impact from inventing a product as this man ever did.
