Well, there's a lot of sodium in it and it's spicy... But I couldn't tell you about the taste. It has a lot of ingredients. There's garlic and some other things, but I wouldn't say you necessarily taste the garlic.

Also, I've heard it said that the noodle quality for these instant-type cups is lower than the "normal" square ramen type, but I personally just love the powder so I don't care much even if that is true.

In for one or two orders.

Both statements are only partially true. You have some control over how spicy/salty/sodium by using only part of the seasoning pocket. I typically only use 2/3. Having this control is great because in comparison, Campbell soup also has a ton of sodium but consumer don't have the option to reduce intake by making it less salty. The left over seasoning doesn't go to waste. I use them for as dry rub for chicken wings. Better than all the wing seasonings I have tried.

And here's my 10mins Ramen one pot meal recipe :

500ml in an 1 quart pot if you are not adding much extra (see below), or 1.5qt pot with more extras
on high heat bring to a boil 3-4mins
drop the Ramen cake in
add seasoning pocket (1/2 pocket to full pocket depending on personal preference)
Keep water boiling with heat at medium-high
Add extras depending on what's in the fridge.
Noodle takes 4 minutes for al dente or 5 mins for a softer texture

the included dried veggie pack takes about 1-2 minutes to cook
and here are some extras I frequently add:
Tofu - sliced to roughly McD fries size 3-4 minutes
Egg - 1-2 minute for soft poached, 2-3 minutes for harder (some people like to drop in the egg at the very end and stir to break the yolk. not my personal style)
Veggie - kale/cabbage/mushroom 3 minutes, spinach/arugula/lettuce 1 minute - all chop to soup size
Frozen seafood (seafood mix, small scallops, muscles, shrimps) 3 minutes

Add any/all of the above based on the noodle's cooking time. e.g. you want al dente noodle, then add frozen seafood 1 minute after dropping in the noodle. Make sure bring the soup back to boiling with medium/high heat after adding any extra then turn to medium/low.

You'll have a tasty/healthish (if you added a decent amount of veggie) one pot meal in 10 minutes.

It occurred to me just now that you could just buy a single pack of the ramen from Walmart and try it out yourself... before committing to a 12 pack. Some people who really like the spice will cook the ramen and the vegetable packet, then drain the water and add the powder at the end. Some Korean guys I used to live with did that, so I started doing it and prefer it more, since the water really dilutes the flavor.

As for how to cook the ramen, I usually do one side for 3-3.5 minutes, then flip it and do the other side for 2-2.5 minutes. Otherwise it isn't as evenly cooked... and I add the vegetable packet after flipping it, since it might be a little overcooked if in there the whole time

You might be doing something wrong. Either water not boiling or not enough water. In a pot with enough boiling water, the noodle cake would submerge and disintegrate in less than 3mins. It's not flipable and no need to flip by that point.

The ceramic bowls that I have don't fully submerge the noodle. If I was cooking it on the stovetop with a pot, it might not be necessary. I guess it's more specific advice for this type of situation

Decent price, but as you said cheaper at Asian Grocery stores, BUT not all have access to Asian Grocery Stores. Fortunately I have an 99 Market about four miles away and if I go there Ramen is always on the list and Shin is just OK compared to many others you can get. The selection is mind boggling, Having said that, for the adventurous try

MyKuali - Spicy Prawn
MyKuali Red Tom Yum Goong
MyKuali Pennang White Curry
Mama Shrimp Tom Yum (Reg. or creamy)

The Prima Taste Laska La Mian and Curry La Mian are supposed to be first rate but hard to get other than Amazon and not a good value ($3 to $4 each pack)
He said "cheaper THAN", not "cheaper AT".

I thought this is as spicy as the Samyang. If you are in for real spicy, buy Samyang instead.

This is, without reservation, the best instant ramen you can usually find. The noodles have a really good texture and the flavor is better than the majority of other packet/cup noodles. Toss a slice of American cheese in @1 min left and stir in a scrambled egg at the end for a souped up version.
