Are These "Top Ten Instant Ramen" Available in Boston?

And maybe more importantly, are these amongst your favs? How is the MSG factor in these?
I've never eaten instant ramen. Sapporo's curry pork ramen is a regular for us but we typically bring it home and add vegs and tofu to it. Yumewokatare is not likely to see us w/ the wait line set-up, and Uni is too late for us.The ramen delivery guy i read about was a So End option only iirc.

Instant does have its appeal occasionally. That's usually when we pull out from the freezer some Cheese Spinach boreks from Eastern Lamejun or meat empanadas from Tango, or a TrJ Chicken Tika Masala-- all of which can be ready in anywhere from a few minutes to 15, using microwave and or toaster oven. So Instant Ramen I am wondering about.

Caveat: I know man-made MSG draws all kinds of arguing, but i will say that I can feel it when I have consumed it and I'd rather not.I'm not very good at recognizing it in ingredient lists when it's called by another name, and i wonder if it is an 'always' ingredient in these instant ramen, just as it is in all prepared dashi (except the tea bag-like packets i buy.) TIA!
