Pot Noodle

Postby hyweljones » Mon Aug 07, 2006 3:55 pm

There are 3 sizes of pot noodle. Mini, Regular and King.

Why does the sauce packet remain the same size for each though?

Surely a king size warrants a larger soy sauce packet?

Pot noodle Tip...

Add Lea & Perrins to a chicken and mushroom. Lovely!

Good point. I've really gone off Pot Noodles though -- after stuffing myself with ramen, they just feel really thick and chemically. My fave ramen at the moment is this:

Nissin Cup Noodles are also good; they include little bits of egg, pork and shrimp and the soy sauce soup is de-lish.

Pot noodles are an abomination, an insult to the palate, even worse than Marmite and cucumber, all of which should be consigned to the compost bin immediately
In Haveanewvest they built a motorway through the town by way of urban renewal ;-)

Pot noodels are what students eat instead of food.

What about Super Noodles?

BTW, we have a Pot Noodle page on our Wiki if anyone wants to add more flavours:

Maybe we can add more things to 'geek food':

We are re-naming the place Chaverfordwest. :lol:

I really rate the new super noodle instants. The chicken one is great. Again add Lea and Perrins for extra effect.

I once spent 4 hours trying to boil water up a mountain to eat a pot noodle, in the end we ran out of gas and used luke warm water, haven't touched them since :)

And before anyone sais it, yes I realise that next time I should boil the water not up a mountain.

As far as student / geek food goes, I rarely remember anything solid, it was mainly liquid based. Or failing that, Maryland Cookies. Not to start a debate on all matter which is buscuit based, but digestives, hob nobs and maryland are where its at!
I think, therefore I compile

Sadly not -- I've hardly ever seen Japanese ramen outside of shops like the Japan Centre. Still, the JC (along with some other Japanese food shops) have an online presence and let you order stuff.

Seems to me you stated the problem and the solution in the same post. I try not to add too much to pot noddles because various people I know would do the same and claim they are cooking.

Its a delicate art making a pot noodle.

Too much water and the sauce gets too runny. To little and you get crunchy noodles and dry powder stuck on the bottom.

Three steps to the perfect Pot Noodle:

1) Open bin
2) Drop Pot Noodle in bin
3) Close bin

Or you could make one with vodka, like a friend of mine once did...

Oh dear.
