When you think of ramen, two very different dishes likely come to mind. Theres the ramen you would get at a nice restaurant that comes with high-quality noodles, delicious, from-scratch broth, and all the toppings your heart desires. This stuff is top-notch soup, and you might even eat it for a celebration.
On the other hand, you may also think about Maruchan ramen. You know, the stuff that comes in a package? You have the powdered broth, the questionable noodles, and not much else. Sure, it may not be the top-of-the-line ramen youre used to having, but its a pantry staple that we just cant get rid of.
Whether youre a broke college student, bartering soup on the informal ramen jail economy, or just need something to feed yourself at the end of a long day that wont require hours of cooking or any effort, ramen is the way to go. But which flavors really taste the best? Take a look at this ranking of every Maruchan ramen flavor, from worst to best. That way, you know what to avoid and what to pick up the next time youre in the ramen aisle.

1 25 Percent Less Sodium Beef
Most people already know that packaged ramen is far from a healthy food choice. Its not something you eat on the first day of your new diet or what you feed to a sick child. Therefore, any attempts to make it healthier are likely to fall flat.
Normal Beef Maruchan contains 790 mg of sodium, which accounts for about a third of your days salt intake. (Also, keep in mind this is in a single serving, and there are two servings in every package.) You may be disappointed to learn that the 25 percent less sodium Beef flavor isnt exactly healthy either. It has a whopping 540 mg of sodium per serving, which is still about a quarter of the salt you should eat in a day.
And with less salt, the flavor really falls flat. Lets be honest, Maruchan ramen would probably taste like nothing without the salt. Therefore, you can really tell when they take it away. And since the Beef flavor isnt our favorite flavor to begin with, youre left with a noodle dish that youll probably just want to throw in the trash.
