See, I'm kinda mixed here. I love them *and* hate them. I hate eating the ones you can get in the US by themselves.
Living with my girlfriend's family has taught me that you should almost always add stuff to ramen. Then it's delicious. And we don't eat US packaged ramen here, either. It's usually Korean or Chinese ramen.
And I love Japanese ramen. That stuff is much higher quality than the stuff we get in the US, and you can almost never find the simple ramen wrapped in plastic. It's almost always in a cup that you eat the ramen out of, and almost all ramen has other ingredients in it, and the noodles always seem fresher.
