American The Ramen Rater's Top Ten American Instant Noodles Of All Time 2017 Edition

After a few years, I thought I ought to update this list. I thought I even ought to change the name a little. Honestly, not a huge amount of instant noodles from the United States cross my desk these days and of those that do, not many are 5 stars. Nonetheless, there are some changes in the past few years that I thought were noteworthy and so here you go! These are the best instant noodles from the United States out of the 2,500+ varieties of instant noodles I’ve reviewed thus far.

Honorable Mention: Mama Pat’s Chicken Fajita Flavor Instant Ramen Noodles

American The Ramen Rater's Top Ten American Instant Noodles Of All Time 2017 Edition

This last year, I’ve gotten to try hundreds of new instant noodles. Well, this one has a difference that is unique among thousands. First, it’s a chicken instant noodle which isn’t strange – however, this one is made for the United States and has a vegetable sachet as well. For the economy category, this is pretty awesome and unseen here. Second, it’s the first instant noodle I’ve ever seen with a sachet that has drink mix in it in an American instant noodle – let aloned one anywhere in the world. Lemonade, fruit punch – and it’s not bad! Definitely, find this! Original review
