I got a free sample of the Maggi Chicken Noodle Soup Mix in the mail. We tried it one night. If you have it as it is, it’s a bit salty. There is a little pasta in it, but that’s it. On the package it suggests you put some veggies in there. We just had broccoli in the refrigerator, so that’s what I added. It was still too salty for me, but not unbearably so.
