You would not get a fine if it was declared.

You're right ... I always wash my hair before eating, it's the healthy thing to do.

Sadly it's not. The OP's coming in from Hong Kong where one can get the most amazing selection of instant noodles from around the world, well, I mean Asia.

Speaking from personal experience of course.

We have a Korean-flavoured packet that is so fiery hot that you'll wish you'd never started it!

Disco, if you are into your green tea, bring some of that too - sealed of course. I didn't bring any with me from China and really really regret it. The stuff here is rubbish, all dry and no fresh smell etc.

If you are talking about Shin Ramen by Nong Shim and don't worry about bring it over in large quantity. You can actually get it here at Asian grocers, and even some Coles and Woolworth supermarkets.

Them's the ones. If you're passing through one of those shops appreciate a price check.

Can't remember the price but it varies from shop to shop. It's more than $1 a pack but less than $2. The Asian grocers are usually cheaper than the two major supermarkets for imported instant noodles. IMHO, a price check won't help you much - it's bound to be a bit more expensive here, but not something worth bringing lots over just simply because it's cheaper in HK, unless you're taking cartons of them over or something like that. It's harmless bringing a pack or two over if you really want and if they're more important than other things you need. Just make sure you declare at customs.
