Does all ramen have some kind of meat in it or are there some flavors that don't have meat in it? I heard that there are also "vegan friendly" ramen brands out there, is that true? If so, what are they called??

Dr. McDougall's and Koyo Asian also make vegan ramen, but they're not my favorite. I'm partial to the junky ones I grew up with <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

In addition to what's already been mentioned, Annie Chun makes vegan ramen and soup bowls too. You can also find ones in Asian supermarkets that are vegan.<br><br>
Dr. McDougal's "Chicken" Ramen is my favorite.

Hmmm, never seen that one before. Are you sure there's no beef/chicken fat in it? Most of them have it.<br><br>
Your avatar is funny, btw <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

It looks like the mushroom flavor is vegetarian but not vegan. I've never seen it in stores, though!<br><br>
Here are the ingredients:<br><a href="http://www.zeer.com/Food-Products/Maruchan-Mushroom-Flavor-Ramen-Noodle-Soup/000039136" target="_blank">http://www.zeer.com/Food-Products/Ma...Soup/000039136</a>

are you sure?<br>
I remember, a few years back, my friend (a new vegetarian at the time) made the same statement about the same product, and when I checked myself, I found some meat flavoring.<br>
Look again, and make sure you read all the ingredients on the back. If I remember correctly, there's two lists - it's not on the first, but on the second.<br>
Granted, they could have changed it since, but you can never be too safe.

<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/yes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":yes:"> Positive. The website confirms their veganness. A lot of people call all ramen noodles top ramen, so maybe the bag you read wasn't Top Ramen brand. The oriental Maruchan contains beef powder.

I went to the store yesterday and bought 8 packets of Oriental Top Ramen, all vegan <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:"> No Shin cups, so I'll ask my bf to scope out WM for them. Got one of these instead, there was a $1 off coupon on it, so it was $3.<br><br><img alt="" src="http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51v8JHQxx6L.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br><br>
I LOVE noodles. I could seriously eat them alllll day.

I went to Wal-Mart today (ew) and they only had the packets of ramen, not vegan. Are you SURE the ones you got were vegan?
