Click pic to view comments Confirmed sighting: Pot Noodle Seedy Sanchez
Posted: 12:57 Mon 05-01-2004. Price: 2 for 1. Location: Iceland, Biggin Hill. Nutritional unusualness: Quite good for munchies.
[Download TV ad here] The (coincindentally?) named "John Sanchez" reports: This [is] the best flavoured Pot Noodle ever, not too spicy, not too hot, very nice subtle Mexican flavours with a hint of green chili, this the only Pot Noodle which makes you want more. Great buy.

...(Yes, not too much detail here, though the picture looks fairly convincing - unless he's photographed it off a TV ad or something. And has he missed out the word "is" to try and sound more Mexican? Arriba Arriba!) Also it'd be good to know if its "Mexican Fajita" flavour is, like most Pot Noodles, suitable for vegetarians. In other carnivorous creativity: Sandwich Selector quite enjoyed Boots' Turkey Menu selection pack; McSweeney's has posted a review of Ojingaa Dang Kong Squid Balls; and the Food Standards Agency reassures that UK consumers should no longer be concerned about the problem of salami containing undeclared horsemeat and donkeymeat, with just one out of 158 samples found to contain "traces" of horsemeat - believed due to "cross contamination" (ie, a pony wandering into the mincer or something), rather than "deliberate adulteration".

Comment: I'm sure the similarity to the term "Dirty Sanchez" might put some people off... what the hell am I saying, this is Pot Noodle we're talking about.

Comment: Is the Pot Noodle actually that colour, or is it just the camera?

Also spotted Cantonese Black Bean and Spring Onion Sensations Crackers

Comment: I have had the Seedy Sanchez Pot Noodle, only last week! It is spicy, and not as artificial tasting as chicken curry or nice and spicy flavour. It is also more paletable than the Bombay Bad Boy Pot Noodles which are like eating your own shit after a vindaloo. P.S. Can you still buy Pot Mash anywhere?

Comment: Has anyone positively identified the place? I'm getting fed up of wandering the streets looking too closely at every empty blue shop- how close to the market you have to be to be within the Covent Garden area is too fluid a concept to make for any systematic approach...

Comment: yes yes these are the don! with this flava you are really spoiling us....a modern classic. as an optional extra we recommend combining seedy sanchez with cantonese black bean and malaysian chutney sensations crackers....truly a gourmet experience!

Comment: In an insane moment of zealous hunger, I foolishly mixed the dry contents of half a bacon Sizzler into half a Seedy Sanchez. Never again. Before this foul abomination could pervert my tongue further, I had to get rid of it... Nuke the site from orbit, it's the only way to be sure.

Comment: English girl you're so pale and so lovely/ on holiday with your proud man/ But secretly he's bored with you/ He want it filthy and dirty and more rude/ And when you sleep he creep into town/ To look for the backstreet action/ He can't resist the Seedy Sanchez/ The Mexican Pot Noodle mess/ And as he swallow, he shout "Oh yes"/ Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes, OH YES!

Comment: This campaign thoroughly deserves to sell a gazillion Pot Noodles. I have downloaded the advert, watched it 473 times, and I laugh louder each time. It's the "Oh yes! Oh yes! Oh yes!" - genius. God, I wish I'd written that. B^st^rds!

For lunch today I had cauliflour and lentil soup, from Sesame on Regents Park Road, it was really very nice.

I have no idea about cybercandy, I don't think it was me that was talking about that.

Comment: I think the latest pot noodle 'dirty sanchez' advert is hilarious. Not only is the accent stereotyped but brilliant so is the fit english bird in it as well. You have managed to create an image/surrounding that most people imagine when away on holiday. The whole advert is very accurate and pictures a good feeling of being on holiday. Well done and keep it up. Its the advert that makes your product as pot noodle is not new but the advert is. I hope you produce more adverts like this

Comment: Clearly, polar bears get very agressive when removed from their natural habitat. Although I'm sure polar bears are fairly agressive anyway. However, polarbear, stop being a c*ck and submit something constructive. Pot noodles are widely recognised as dirty chav food and are certainly not known as "gourmet" as well you know!
