The first time I ever got this brand, I got the teriyaki beef. It was one of the most amazing noodle things I have ever had. Since I usually don't go with the beef brand of options, I decided to check out the Maruchan Yakisoba Chicken Flavor. When I got it out of the microwave, I was so excited. However, when I took the first bite...I was severely disappointed. It wasn't TERRIBLE. I mean, I wouldn't turn it down if someone were offering it for free, but I definitely wouldn't pay money for the chicken flavor one.
