Never did care for them. Water and flour make cheap noodles and to me taste better.

Also, I found the taste of the uncooked noodles to be much better then the high Sodium, High in fat content rest of the mess, cooked. The following is how I have eaten them, most of the time....
When we're being lazy, my wife and I often cook the noodle brick with low-sodium low-fat chicken broth, rather than the powdered heart-attack-in-a-bag that comes with the noodles.
What the hell is everyone talking about? There's like some salt and some flavoring stock in those packets, and not very much either, how is it bad?
And you bumped this after three months because....?
I think it's like a disease - if you use House as your avatar you have to cuss and disrespect all statements by others and act the part of the tortured misunderstood genius and generally be a jerk for a minimum of two weeks.
Can I do all that minus the "Jerk" part? >:-D
A serving of ramen is high in carbohydrates and low in vitamins and minerals. Ramen soup tends to be high in sodium.

In some ramen noodle brands, the sodium content reaches 3000 mgs...

Those of us on a low sodium diet, because of heart problems, OR high blood pressure (or both), need to keep meals below the 200 mg level, for the entire meal. If I don't keep it below 150 mg for a meal, I get tremendous headaches. But that average package of ramen which contains more than 1,560 mg of sodium is pretty dangerous.
I, too, am on a low sodium diet--I eat much salt, my feet & legs swell up like a puffer fish. But even salt isn't the worst of ramen--do you realize those tasty tidbits are deep-fat-fried before packaging? Take a look at the fat grams, and more importantly, the sat fats & trans fats. I'm going to stick to my whole-wheat noodles, thank you very much!
Yeah, the sodium is of GREAT concern to me, more for the fact that it causes renal failure, and my kidneys ARE failing already.
