    The two on the right got me through university. I had a drawer that would hold a case of ramen, and the local grocery had reward stamps for dollars spent. At least once a month you could get a package of hot dogs for fifty cents a pack with the stamps.

    I`m in-between "ramen" and "popcorn" stages...
    Not "microwave popcorn" just... popcorn (and butter!)

    Fun Fact: At my supermarket?
    Bulk (no name) popcorn costs 19 cents per 100 grams...
    Bagged `no name` popcorn? 1.79 / kilo
    2.29 for a 2 kilo bag...

    YOU do the maths!

    38 years of farm subsidies to corporate food conglomerates and it`s somehow Obama`s fault, huh Vic.

    Do all conservatives have the memory span of a brain damaged goldfish?

    Chicken? You clearly haven`t been to Ontario. Here, chicken breasts are about $5 each. We used to do the spaghetti thing when times were tight, but last week, a pound of hamburger was $10.

    Jesus. I just got Porterhouses from the butcher for $7.99/lb and fresh swordfish steaks for $14.99/lb.

    Then again, we only eat meat 3x a week so we usually have nicer meals when we do.

    People with EBT cards buy food that I can`t afford myself. They don`t ever use coupons or discount cards either. (6-midnight PT cashier at a supermarket) Never ramen, never!

    Ramen`s great. Besides being cheep it`s easy to doctor up into a meal. Throw in a mess of frozen vegetables, chop up any leftover meat in the fridge or just crack a raw egg into it when your boiling it. Soy sauce or sesame seed oil, add garlic or cilantro. Or just the spice it came with.

    @HumanAction,
    Crazy, isn`t it? Same deal applies to dairy. Cheese here is crazy with a 500g block being about $9 and milk being about $4.50 for 4 liters. And don`t get me started on booze!

    Before they introduced the "Passport" requirements to enter the U.S., we used to cross the boarder for meat, cheese and booze all the time.

    I eat Ramen even though I can afford more cause I actually like it.
    And Hamburger, what USED to be the cheap alternative meat, is now more expensive than most other beef. We actually bought a meat grinder and grind up cheaper cuts of meat into hamburger just to save a few bucks.

    Ramen`s great.
    Aside from the fact that it has enough salt in it to kill garden slugs.

    Also, for some reason pork is HELL of a lot cheaper than beef.

    Next step you`ll be eating your shoeleather and then barley husk soup and then your neighbours` kids.

    i-am-evil, I think it depends on if you`ve forsaken the hot dog buns yet. But I`d say the microwave burritos come before: they have more to `em than a simple hot dog.

    You are evil, I think with Mexican food its order is Taco Bell, 10 for 10 frozen burritos, store brand tortillas and bulk canned beans, finally homemade everything.
