Strange how lately Walmart has become a treasure trove for Maruchan products – found six I hadn’t reviewed there recently! Anyways, here’s the chicken lower sodium pack.
The back of the package (click to enlarge). I really like how they have a little aside about the versatility of instant noodles here – not something you see all the time.
The noodle block.
Usually when I think of this color, I think of hot and spicy. Thought it interesting they should choose it for lower sodium.
Took a taste of the seasoning – quite nice. Has a slight sweetness at first then a good herbed chicken taste.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added stir fry veggies, baked chicken with Tony Chachere’s Creole seasoning and some Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake. The noodles are a little different; not in any sort of bad way though – they’re really good, just seem a little different as far as the outside. The broth is good – a very nice real chicken flavor, although seems like it needs a little salt. I would imagine 35% more salt. I think though if I weren’t used to eating salt in such abundance that it would be enjoyable if I were on a restrictive diet where salt was a concern. This is good stuff – seems like they’ve gotten the lower sodium pretty darn on the money. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 041789004117 – get it here.
This commercial is awesome – mariachi with noodles are cool!

I actually vastly prefer these over the regular sodium variety, as they are much too salty. I make mine in the cup and have not noticed any difference in the noodles.
