Skinny noodles?

I would like to buy some skinny noodles like one gets in canned soup. I can't find them in any market so far in the Dallas area.

    Have you looked at the Mexican soup noodles that come in 8oz bags ('fideos')?

      How about angel hair pasta from the Italian deli.

        You might also see them labelled "angel hair nests." You should also check the Asian aisle of your supermarket --

          ramen noodles always work, with the sodium packet that is.

            Try the Jewish foods section there are bags of those, I just saw them at my store because I'm thinking I want to make homemade chicken soup, but make it lighter with thin noodles.
            The brand is Manishewitz.

              Look for vermicelli. It's tha same as the mexican fideo's.

                Egg noodles come in three sizes: "fine" is the size you're looking for. Although I prefer broad or medium myself, but you're right, if you make soup with the fine it magically tastes similar to canned.
                Penn Dutch and all the other noodle companies make these. Around here, they're always on the bottom shelf with the pastas.
