The Maruchan Instant Lunch is very handy. I keep a supply at home for days when I don't feel like making a lunch. (Although, combining one with a cheese sandwich make a very nice lunch!) Unlike the regular Ramon noodles, the instant lunches come with their own cup, so all you have to do is add water and wait, and you get a delicious soup with lots and lots of noodles. (My parents used to buy these, cook them up, and then pour out the soup, eating only the noodles. But, I think that the soup is very good, and I always eat that up as well!)
Each of these packages contain 290 calories (110 calories from fat), and has 37g of carbs, which is not too bad. It does have a whopping 1,410 mg of sodium (59% of your USDA recommended daily allowance!), but I do think that that is to be expected from an instant lunch - many canned soups contain two servings per container, and have about the same amount of sodium per serving, and I have known people to consume an entire can of soup for lunch.
So, let me just say that this is not health food. But, what it is is a convenient, low-cost lunch - one that you can leave sitting in the back of a cupboard, or slip into a backpack for a warm meal on an outing.
Please note, though, this is NOT a vegetarian soup - it does contain chicken broth, which I think really does violate the whole "California Vegetable" idea.
