    They are great for hiking/camping. They are very light and don't take up too much room in the pack. The taste isn't bad either.

    You can do so much with them, many people shun them because of the high sodium. The thing to do is use only half the packet of seasoning or ditch it altogether and use your own. I just boil them, then stir fry them with fresh veggies and low sodium soy sauce.

    I have never tried them, because I was told that they were to salty.
    Take only what you need, and leave the rest.

    They are a quick meal. I have some stocked in the pantry. They are light to pack and carry.

    I don't eat them so much anymore. I did pick up a couple of cases a while back when they were on sale to add to my supplies. Tony - as far as the salt, Marylp is exactly right. Don't use the entire seasoning packet or make your own if you are concerned with the salt content (I never have). When I lived in Hawaii they were a diet staple. They were even on the menu at McDonalds.

    I keep some in my BOB.At 3oz. and 390 calories and the fact that they are dirt cheap,you cant go wrong.The flavor packet has zero calories and is simply beef boulion crushed up.That is where all the sodium and msg is too.Not everyone is sensitive to sodium and blood pressure and it is a vital electrolyte.These can even be eaten as trail mix without adding water.Ive tried it and prefer em cooked but with low water supply or no time to stop and cook your still getting the calories.

    I lived on them for six months when I was going through my divorce. They're great for what they are, but I can't eat them anymore without turning my stomach.

    Strange, I lived on MREs for almost two years, and I still crave them. Maybe I overdosed on the ramen noodles.

    Uh yeah...I lived on ramen when I was in college. That was over 10 years ago. Only over the past fall was I able to look at the cooked product without going a bit green about the gills... I gotta try dumping some in some coffee, just to see...

    I still make them the way we used to get them in korea...with a little beef or chicken and a slice of american cheese melted into the broth. But I eat Ramen with tuna, tuna and cheese, jalapeno's, they're very versatile. As for the salt, if you're cooking them at home, a tablespoon of butter goes a long way to reducing the sodium while still providing the full flavor of the seasoning packet. I don't put the butter and cheese at the same time. Too much fat. There have been times when I'm totally burnt out on Ramen, but it's a diet staple now because they are cheap and they can prettty much be stashed anywhere. And whoever was talking about the jailhouse chips, yeah, you can crush the noodles in the bag and just sprinkle the packet over the noodles, but then you REALLY notices the sodium eating them raw.

    I really like them. I'm a big eater, so when I make them, I make 2 packs at a time. I also like to add cheyenne pepper and bbq spice to mine. I like the strong flavor, so I boil and then pour out the water, and then I add the packet of flavor. Yep, I'm not in need of sodium for a while.

    Love Ramen noodles. At home I like to stir fry after cooking the noodles, and add fresh veggies and sometimes chicken or venison. I add my own seasoning with much less salt and msg. At work I like to use the cup-a-soup version.

    I think your getting me confused with vthompson.
