    Maggi are the worst of all of the instant noodles I have ever tried.. None are healthy but the best seem to be Korean Nong Shim brand, Japanese Nissin, or Thai Mama…. Maggi seem to be softer noodles with the nastiest most salty flavour sachets..still $3 is cheap for those that like them… I think Coles (Hurstville, NSW) had paldo brand noodle bowls which were ok for $1.20 each…

      Depends what kind of instant noodles you like. I prefer the dry ones without soup, like Indomie and Trident. But I agree, Maggi are the worst.

      Have a try on Maggie curry made in Malaysia.

        For anyone that doesn't know, look for the red writing and Kare (curry). They're delicious.

        The Maggi Ayam (chicken) from Malaysia are also 10x better than the Maggi Chicken you buy here.
        In the Australian market they have cut down all the sodium and some other ingredients from the sachet and the ones you buy at Coles and Woolies are now bland and tasteless. Grey imports ftw.

      MAMA flat rice noodles are godly. picked up a carton when i was in thailand last year.

    •  

      You are wrong they have 99% fat free noodles and hidden fibre noodles low in fat in the chicken and beef and the spice packets have 50% less sodium than the regular. Normally instant noodles are very bad for you as once they cook them they deep fry them which dries them out for packing.

      But stay clear of the Indian noodles with lead in it.

    Maybe they are pasty as made from atta flour?

    •  

      'Atta noodles' is another variant from India for slightly more health conscious people. The one posted here is standard variant, which is the highest selling. It's made of regular flour.

    50c at my local Coles. Was good value when I thought it's a 4-pack, surprised it was 8. Not individually-wrapped though.

    Taste ain't bad…not an expert on anything Masala.

    Indian here.

    Maggi used to give the samples free like 20 years ago. That is the only reason it is so popular there.Fortunately, there are other noodles there now.

    There are so many better noodles in India and elsewhere. No one should be eating this. If nothing else, the other noodles give you a larger packet of spice mixture. Some noodles give you

    A) Spice mixture
    B) Fried onions
    C) Flavoured oil
    D) Soy sauce

      You are comparing apples and oranges. You can not compare masala noodles with Asian style noodles.

    •  

      With a large vegetarian population in India, 'Maggi Masala' variant (this one has no meat flavour though they have a chicken variant) has always been the favorite choice of Indians. Most of the noodles available here in Coles and Woolies have meat flavours.

      Plus, 'Maggi Masala' or 'Top Ramen' are a class in themselves. They can't be compared with Asian style noodles.

        With a large vegetarian population in India

        Where are you getting that from? Vegetarians in India account for about 5-10% of the population. They may be a large number compared to other countries or the largest worldwide, but the vegetarian population in India is a minority now.

          5-10%? Really? Mate, have you ever lived there?

          •  

            @virhlpool: Actually yes i have "mate".

            Also if you bother reading the following paragraph, it paints a closer picture of reality than you think. Even 20% is an over estimation IMO.

            A 2018 study from Economic and Political Weekly by US-based anthropologist Balmurli Natrajan and India-based economist Suraj Jacob suggests that the percentage of vegetarians may be closer to 20%; the study argues that meat-eating behavior is underreported because consumption of meat, especially beef, is "caught in cultural, political, and group identity struggles in India".

    How much sodium 🧂 are we talking about?

    i wonder whether any tests were done on Maggi's Australian products to ensure they don't have high lead content! HIghly concerning!

    I agree when some of you claim Maggi makes some of the worst instant noodles out there… but that's only true in Australia.
    Maggi localizes their flavour to suit different country preferences. Have you ever tried Maggi Malaysia/Singapore Kari (Curry) flavour?
    It's almost always sold out in asian supermarkets around the CBD that I frequent.
    It's my favourite Maggi flavour too. The Maggi Malaysia/Singapore Ayam (Chicken) flavour tastes different too compared to the local one we get in Coles.
    Personally, I'm not a fan of both chicken flavour varieties regardless of country of origin, but I know a few people who really enjoy the Malaysian chicken flavour.
    P/s: They also make Tom Yam flavour which again, I'm not so much a fan of but try it for yourself instead of taking my opinion for it.

    All in all, hit an asian supermarket and try the aforementioned flavours.

    •  

      You nailed it. This is true for all Indian flavours of Maggi too. I wonder why it took Australian market decades to get these Asian versions sold in local supermarkets here. Indian Maggi arrived just a few months back to Coles and Woolies (and only in some stores based on local demographics, which is fair) - and it's just this variant. Maggi sells multiple flavours in India.

    Are the noodles in this package individually packed? Keen to give this a go, but i dont want to have to use them all up at once.

    •  

      No. Only the flavoring comes in individually packed satchets

      You do not have to use it all at once. USe 1 out of the 4, close it with a clip or a simple rubber band. Use it again when required.

      Why do you have to use all four noodles' portions at once? You can always clip it back properly and consume it after a week or a few. Sachets are individually packed anyway so you can use one sachet with one portion of noodles.

    Anyone know of any MSG free instant noodles?

  •  

    These are the best and most popular noodles in India.

    If you don't know authentic Indian spices taste, you may not like it.

    They got banned for few months after like 100yrs being the best noodles but have been cleared to be consumed safely and are still the most popular and best seller.
