#354: Maruchan Instant Lunch Chicken Flavor 35% Less Sodium Ramen Noodles With Vegetables

Here’s another new one brought from California by my lovely lady. Thanks, Kit! On with the review!

Okay first off… ‘this product contains 660mg of sodium versus 1170mg for our regular product.’ What I’d like to know is why it says 735mb of sodium on the cardboard package them. I just looked at Nissin’s Hearty Chicken Cup Noodle and it has like 40mg more than this one. Weird.

Looks like a nice amount of veggies and seasoning…

I found this guy kind of annoying…

On the other hand, I found this to be interesting. Do they really have this globalization cam thing at McDonald’s? Sounds fascinating…

  1. Just tried one of the 35% less sodium bricks by Maruchan ramen, beef flavored. Even the beef one had a sortof buttery flavor, like you mention with this. Dunno how that 35% less salt causes such an odd flavor change.
