Progresso is by far the best canned soup brand on the market. I order the flavor I like on-line because the supermarket chain I frequent no longer carries that particular flavor of soup....THAT'S how good their soup is, well the flavor I like anyways :)

When I make instant noodles, it's because I'm too drunk, hung over, lazy, or broke for a real meal, so I just use the packet it comes with.
Ramen is literally just Japan's version of Kraft Dinner. I mean, you wouldn't have Kraft Dinner as a real meal, you'd only make it for the reasons I mentioned above.

I tried ramen noodles once and it was so salty, I poured it down the drain.

"it was so salty"

Most of the sodium is in the seasoning packet. That's why I use my own seasoning recipe.

Thanks, Linnster.

I had never tried it before, so it didn't occur to me that there would be so much salt in the seasoning packet. If you look at most prepared foods, there's too much salt and/or sugar in them - even foods that are supposed to be "healthy."

I agree. Most "health foods" are unregulated scams that prey on the fears of the health-conscious.

Unless you grow your own food, you really don't have any idea whether it's "organic" or not.

If I'm down to ramen noodles there's a good chance that I'm dumping in what's provided and chowing down.

"down to ramen noodles" LMAO!...Yep, that's pretty much scraping bottom.

Thanks, Freeranger.

I never touch them because of the huge amount of sodium in them. I have to keep as low of levels of sodium as possible as it aggravates my Meniere's disease.

Too much sodium causes and/or aggravates many health problems.
When I cook, I only use unrefined salt.

I use the flavor packet but I add a small can of mixed vegetables. It's actually pretty good.

I use their seasoning packet, and also add some fresh lemon juice and several shakes of hot sauce to the ramen noodle broth.... Also, you can add fresh spinach, mushrooms/other veggies and a protein of our choice to turn it into a a great homemade ramen noodle soup.

Yeah you should definitely try it that way, it's way more tastier...my kids who use to love the Ramen noodle broth as is, would easily make it on their own after school. eh now they won't eat that soup unless I'm home to doctor that simple soup up with my seasonings and added veggies/proteins to it...THAT'S how good my recipe to that soup is! :)

If you ever get to try fresh-made Ramen noodles, I highly recommend.
