Never. Not even once.
I think it's because the sodium content frightens me. My mouth can't take more than the amount of salt that's on 1 or 2 french fries before it starts hurting.

ah then don't get them... very salty. but man are they good. unless you just used the seasoning packet to flavor the noodles then discard the broth.

I've also wished I could eat potato chips more! I do enjoy them, but the salt *ouch*! is too much. I'm waiting for the next fad to be the "regular food-but-now-salt-free" diet - I'd be in heaven!

We can buy the noodles plain here, without seasoning mix. I use them for stir fries now and then. In fact they are called Wok Noodles.

i watch my sodium like crazy. if i eat something salty then i drink like 62 oz. of juice to dilute it! my dietician tried to convince me that sodium is okay, but i flipped her the proverbial bird. i hate how puffy salt makes me; skinny as i am, i still worry about stuff like that.

Sodium is more than "okay" it is something your body requires! It gets a bad rap but it is honestly very important. It helps regulate fluids in your body and is also critical for nerve and muscle function. Sodium is only bad when it is overdone; too little sodium is just as bad as going overboard with it.

Having a bag of ramen noodles for supper won't make you explode with sodium unless that's the kind of stuff you eat day in and day out. I like the old 80-20 rule ~ if 80% of what you eat is good for you, that 20% you splurge on isn't going to kill ya.

let's see who can make the cheapest nutritious dinner and posts the actual cost (tax included)
I made Tortellini for two of us last night, nothing fancy, for around $7.
