Well the noodles themselves are very different too, flavor and texture. I don't know what kind of sprucing they did so I can't say though. I can say that $8 is not large enough of an investment to warrant not just trying them for yourself. I very seriously doubt that they cook the broth for hours for their spruced up instant ramen.

Depends on what you define as cheap ramen prepared at home the Asian way. Usually that means dried noodles that you boil in broth powder, water, and ingredients, which can vary depending on type of ramen. If we are talking about authentic ramen where the noodles are freshly pulled (or cut depending on region and style, though originally the noodles were pulled), the broth is prepared painfully slow, and the ingredients properly prepared, then the difference is like heaven and earth. Here is the thing though; ramen is basically Asian soul/comfort food that was originally sold at roadside food stalls. While time consuming when done properly, it is ultimately cheap (unless you are eating it in the US where it is considered almost a "delicacy") while filling as will as cheap to make.
