A while ago, my mom called me to ask what Tony and I wanted for Christmas. We really didn't know what to say. I guess you get to a certain point in your life when you realize that Christmas really is for the kids. At least the whole gift-getting part of it. When you are a self-sufficient adult, you pretty much just go and buy something when you want it. There are no wish lists or "pretty pretty pleases" to your parents to buy it for you.

In the meantime, pregnancy cravings kicked in and I'll be damned if I couldn't find what I craved in the stores! Such a simple product that I had grown up loving for its salty goodness, and yet here, in Buttfuck Ontario, it was nowhere to be found. What's more, no one even knew what I was talking about. I mentioned this to my mom, who laughed and wondered how I could stand eating the stuff as it is so salty. But to a pregnant woman, the stuff is like candy. Salty goodness candy. It is SO not the same as Mr. Noodles. Period. And I am not the only one who affirms its superiority.

This arrived today as an early Christmas gift:

Best Christmas present EVAH!

I may have already eaten some. For breakfast.

Salty goodness

My mommy is good to me.


  1. see now THAT'S a Christmas gift! :)

  2. Yum!! What a great mom.

  3. I love you.
    I want your present.

  4. Girl, have you ever eaten the ramen noodles raw? Nom Nom Nom Nommmmmm

  5. Yeah, I looked on the pkg for the sodium content - half a pack contains 48% of your daily sodium intake needs. And really, who eats HALF a pkg??

  6. OMG that brings back such memories. I went through a few weeks when I was pregnant with CJ where I ate ramen for EVERY SINGLE MEAL. I haven't touched the stuff since. Enjoy your salty goodness!

  7. No, I love you better...and I go get my own and eat it right now. Seriously

  8. I love that stuff! But my kids hate it! They like the knock off, no-name brand stuff better.

    Kids. They just don't know what is good for them.

  9. Cute story! The picture definitely reflects how much you enjoy Sapporo. I don't know who Mr. Noodles is...but I'm sure he tastes just a shade worse than sand.

  10. i have a craving (no, i'm not pregnant!). you know, i can get them in my Loblaws here in Ottawa...not sure why you can't get it there! it's even cheaper than Mr. Noodles...fools!

    and btw...i used to eat them raw all the time...and looking at your comments, i'm glad to see i'm not the only one!
