    Dang, Myojo brand is 6x more expensive than what Maruchan noodles go for. Now granted we're talking $0.50 per package for Maruchan versus about $3 for the Myojo brand which is a big difference in price but we're not talking about a lot of money. So is there really that much difference in the taste and texture of these two noodles?

    Well I'm going to find out because I just placed an order through Amazon.

    The larger Asian markets in my area carries them for around $2.00. But sometimes I find it easier just to order from Amazon, especially with my Prime shipping.

    I don't much care for it, but I have eaten it. It is my wife's favorite midnight snack. The kids like it too, especially the little one. This may be because of the taboo factor-my wife gets upset if she desires it and there is none in the cupboard.
    These are all marachuan and at the local market they are .29 and occasionally 5/$1.00

    Well, my order arrived today, got to love Amazon Prime, and Myojo noodles are better than the Marachuan version. 6x better? Well that's an individual call but I do like them better.

    Mmhh, I will have to look around in Chinatown. The way things are going right now, I may eat lots of them until the end of the year.

    I have shopped some ramen bowls at some of the local groceries that cater to the SE Asian community around here, and the selection is amazing, however the sodium levels are even more amazing. I saw one bowl that had over 4000 mg of sodium! Eat one every 2 days and nothing else and you would be fine!

    while i quite like "real" ramen, i can't eat the instant kind, due to far too many consumed at University.

    Don't eat them, too much sodium in a bowl of instant noodles at about 2x RDA.

    I am addicted to salt. Every time I pass through my kitchen, I take a pinch of kosher out of it's dish and eat it. Instant Ramen is bland, needs more salt.

    I remember these things! Lived off them first year university! Then sodium levels got dangerously high and I got super sick!

    Doctor's cure: no more instant noodle for you!

    Would love to have some spicy noodle right about now!
