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.
