Pot Noodles, those little plastics tubs that you just add boiling water to, now you either “love em or hate em” a bit like Marmite. A few months ago I was tempted to buy a couple as a quick snack because I was very busy with other stuff during the day and didn’t want to take time out to make something to eat at lunchtime. It had been years since I tried one and I recall them being pretty insipid and tasteless crap, I was pleasantly surprised. :D There are so many variations to choose from and every one I have tried since then has been very tasty and I find myself adding a couple to my weekly shop. Anyone else like or hate them? I do, but it may just be that my taste buds are shot, :lol: one mystery though is that if I soak dried peas for other purposes in cooking, I either have to soak them overnight or use those 2 hour quick soak variety. Yet a dried pea in a Pot Noodle is plump and soft in under three minutes, just one of life s mysteries I guess. :tk

Known as the "slag of all snacks" for some reason. :lol:

Will the odd Pot Noodle kill you? No. Will it enhance our body or your health in any way? No. Is it the ultimate in lazy eating and as such is symbolic of so much of what is wrong with our ongoing love affair with processed food? Yes. Is it perhaps time we stepped off this fast moving treadmill of the snack food innovations? Undoubtedly.

Never tried them myself. :ct

Love pot noodles, beef and tomato and the curry ones. Remember when they brought the extra large ones out, called I think, the big Dave? Well I told all my friends this was named after me when I wrote a letter stating that there was never enough for me in the pot. Course, I got round the fat builder they featured in the following adds by stating that they had had to use an actor with an equity card. I do not think that any of them cottoned on. :lol:

A bit like those peanuts I had earlier, but apart from fresh fruit, what isn't full of salt nowadays. :D

The only time I knowing have salt is on my chips. But on Tuesday I received an International aid package via friends over on hols, five bags of family size Planters dry roasted peanuts. :eat Wednesday night I gorged myself on nearly a full bag.
