	That was me, and I was serious - but ONLY Top Ramen Oriental is 
vegetarian.  Maruchen (sp?) have no veg flavors, and all the other TR 
flavors contain meat.  It's not low-fat, though, so I 'spect to get 
flamed from the rest of the list for that.

	I definitely agree about the symbol - I've often lamented that 
fact, since meat shows up in the most unlikely places, and it's sometimes 
hard to find it in the ingredients list.  I wish they could put a V or 
something on food like they put K on Kosher food.

Take care,

(also an aggie, btw, '92)
