How cool! I also shop at HEB, I'll have to look for those. I'm a noodle craver too, and have been experimenting with kelp noodles. Practically nutritionally (and flavor) void, except for some trace minerals, primarily iodine, but definitely filling. You really need to add spices and seasonings, but it will soak the flavor up really well. They're really crunchy too, which some people like on a salad, but is weird hot. Boiling doesn't soften them, but I found that sauteeing them in a pan with a little bit of oil (extra virgin coconut or toasted sesame make for great asian flavors, and they're fairly healthy oils) along with veggies and aromatics will get them a nice firm but not crunchy consistency.
