The Lucky Me! Logo has been changed from a simple solid dark lime green color with red lettering in 1989 to 2002, to the recently more familiar horizontal red oblong resembling a bowl and the old coloring, with the ‘Lucky Me!’ name in a similar font with white text, and yellow vectored smoke on the top resembling the heat that comes out of the ‘bowl’ of noodles with the whole logo having a white outline, this started being used in 2002 to 2022.
