The Liberal Media Forced Me to Eat Ramen

Lately, I've found myself eating Ramen noodles again, after a break of about 10 years.

I blame the liberal media. Specifically, I blame Salon's "Ask the Pilot" column, a recent edition of which sang an airline pilot's praises of ramen.

It spoke to me, reaching some inner emptiness that could not be fulfilled by healthier, non-deep-fried instant noodle products (of which I have many, especially the Trader Joe's instant noodle soup bowls.)

I dug through my cupboard and found a few ancient packages, which to my ramen-deprived palate, tasted the same as if they had just been purchased yesterday.

I ran through those pretty quickly.

Fortunately, as luck would have it, a 10-pack of Maruchan brand (which is made in Irvine, CA and Richmond, VA) was on sale at the supermarket:

Ramen 8-pack

Now that's good eating, at only 380 calories and 14 grams of fat per two-serving package.

All those great asian grocery stores in your vicinity and you get Maruchan?

You need a noodle care package.
