The Best Instant Ramen Flavors

Based on 50,850 Influenster Reviews

Instant ramen gets a bad rap. High in sodium, low in nutritional value, and full of artificial ingredients -- these are some of the reasons people tell you to not eat instant ramen (and they're probably looking out for your best interests). But let's focus on the good parts of this portable meal. Full of flavor, incredibly cheap, quick to prepare, and tons of flavors to choose from. These are some of the best flavors of instant ramen for when you want to indulge in this guilty pleasure (or stock your doomsday pantry).

The best type of kind of ramen in this type of packaging (there are good ramen flavors in the other types of ramen varieties). The chicken flavor is tasty and blends well with the noodles. It doesn't taste nearly as salty as some of the others and it doesn't have any strong aftertaste. It's not the best food in the world but they really are pretty good noodles especially for the price. They have been a frequent meal for me in college and one I eat quite often. You can also eat the noodles raw as a cracker like alternative. ...read more

These are great for a simple dinner. They taste amazing. Great value for the price. I usually buy them in like a package of 12 and they last a while. Very tasty. I love them on a cold night when I'm not wanting too much to eat. We make them a meal & my kids love them too. ...read more

Who doesn't love ramen? Maruchan's Oriental Flavor is absolutely fabulous. It is so extremely tasty! While I prefer to add the water to create broth in mine to make it a soup, my fiance likes to drain the water and then sprinkle the seasoning to make a noodle dish. There is also a great Oriental Salad Recipe! This has always been great to keep on hand when our cupboards are running low. It's so inexpensive and so filling. It's great to stock up these! ...read more

This is the best instant ramen in America! It's super cheap, has a lot of noodles, and the broth is so good! It's pretty spicy, but still enjoyable, and the dehydrated veggies actually taste pretty good! I know it's so bad for you, but sometimes you get a ramen craving! ...read more

These Koyo Ramen noodles are fabulous! They're made with organic noodles and recognizable ingredients. The best part is there is NO MSG. And a portion of the export profits from the product goes to support organic agriculture in the local community. What's not to like? You get TASTY noodles and you get to give back while filling your belly. These are seriously the best I've ever tried. I'm not certain if all of the noodles are vegan, but this particular flavor is, and they're fantastic! ...read more

This is my favorite brand of instant ramen. The noodles themselves even have some sort of flavor to them as well. It's super easy to prepare and they are a bit spicy, which makes them even more appealing to me. I eat these alone or even add eggs and pork for a makeshift ramen bowl. ...read more

MAMA noodles are amazing! My local Asian market always carries this brand and flavor and I am absolutely in love with it. The noodles are somewhat thinner than what I am used to but it add to the texture of the meal itself. The tangyness and spicyness are a perfect balance (however, the spicy factor may be a little too hot for some people). Definitely would recommend other to try this! ...read more
