Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Batchelors Super Noodles To Go Confirmed sighting: Batchelors Super Noodles To Go
Posted: 20:29 Tue 24-Aug-2004. Price: 79p/ 85g (dry weight). Location: Tesco, Finchley. Sub-flavours: Roast Chicken (tested), Chicken Chow Mein, Sweet and Sour, Curry. Nutritional unusualness: 1.8g sodium per serving.
Snackspot reports: In accordance with Snackspot prophecy, this is the "just add hot water" version of Batchelors Super Noodles (and, intriguingly, comes just months after "Stuart Campbell's" comments on what a pain the traditional versions are). Certainly the habitual Pot Noodle user will find little to surprise them here, except perhaps that the tub itself is made of (environmentally friendly?) cardboard rather than Unilever's preference for plastic, though this doesn't seem to (hugely) affect the flavour. You'll also be pleased to hear that the "Roast Chicken" one (with red pepper, sweetcorn, peas and a sachet of soy sauce) remains "Suitable for vegetarians", and that the high sodium content informs any left over "soup" with the delicious tang of warm seawater.

...In other poultry pioneering: the left-hand column now features a link to the Fried Chicken Gallery of the UK's many tribute restaurants "inspired" by KFC; Maxim US has named the "Fat Darrell" (containing chicken fingers, mozzarella sticks and french fries) as its "sandwich of the year"; and The Grocer reports that curry specialist Minara is on the point of launching microwaveable Micro Meals in a jar (2.75 each, in two varieties of chicken and one vegetable biriani).

Comment: Cadbury Snaps are now out, saw some in Woolies but they were almost £2 for a Pringle-size tube! Also Nestle Baci are out...don't think they will be around for long though with a yuk name like that.

Hmm I'm turning into Alex!

Comment: I saw these in my local Tesco and thought I'd take a look. Is anyone aware that this small pot contains nearly five hundred calores!!!!!!!! That's almost as much as most frozen ready meals!!!!!!!!

Comment: I have recently tried your snackpot and I was very disapointed.I think the noodles should be a bit thicker.It was edable,but I dont think I will buy them again.I much prefer the packet noodles which I will continue to buy.

Comment: I purchased some batchelors super noodles to go, but thought it was disgusted that they put veg in them as i eat super noodle rather than pot noodles coz i don't like veg, they could at least have the veg in a seperate sachet.

Comment: I have a pot on the go now the veg is chewy and flavourless. The noodles are ok but nothing like the packet super noodles think it's back to the drawing board on this one Batchelors !

Comment: I am disapointed, I have heard they they taste like crap from a good friend but still wish to try them. If anyone knows of somewhere to get them in the North London area, let me know

Comment: I tried these today and realised why I haven't eaten super noodles or pot noodles or any the wannabe ones for years! They taste so horrible after a few bites and feel TOTALLY unhealthy. It has AMMONIA as a good colourant for goodness sake. The added sweetcorn and peas are funny, if someone was trying to be healthy they wouldn't go near supernoodles why attempt to add veg (which is totally overprocessed and nutritionless). I just can't understand how some people can eat this every day!

Comment: At this very moment I am eating a roast chicken super noodles pot to go and like most other comments, I have to say that the packets are much tastier. I feel it could do with more flavour as it tastes very mild. I'm not saying spice it up, oh no, just that the flavour is very weak.

Comment: I was utterly horrified to find that the new "to go" super noodles have now got veg in them. What a huge dissapointment. No points for this one Batchelors.

Comment: What have they done to Batchelors barbecue supernoodles? They used to be very tasty and you could taste the beef flavour, now you would have a job to tell what flavour you were eating as they are almost tasteless apart from the sweet taste which we personally do not like the added sugar in savory food. The flavouring in the packet comes out light brown now instead of dark brown like it used to when added to the noodles. Has anyone else noticed these changes in the barbecue super noodles? We are not buying them anymore!!!!!!

Comment: I was always sure chicken super-noodles (my favourite) were vegetarian until recently. I noticed "chicken fat" on the ingredients list!? All my friends still insist they are veggie though. How can this be?

Comment: The Chicken Super Noodles contain Chicken Fat. The Barbecue Beef ones do not say they contain Beef Fat but there is no mention on that packet that they are suitable for vegetarians?

Comment: I think the super noodles to go packaging is rubbish compared to pot noodle, its flimsy, the heat from the water burns your hand and its not practical to carry like pot noodle

Comment: LOL (at!) all the people complaining about veggies in the new supernoodles..how old are you lot? 5? most adults like veg dont they?! especially harmless inoffensive ones like sweetcorn and peas which come in these supernoodles!so i really dont get the big deal about the veg... anyway, i may be a minority but i love these new supernoodles! and i love pot noodles too..im just addicted to noodles basiclly
Posted: 21:57 Sun 17-Aug-2008 by "Dave" # permalink comment
Comment: laura, toanswer your question my guess is that they wanted to make the chicken pot noodles tastier so included some real chicken fat or whatevr, therefore making them tastier and more appealing to the non vegetarian masses even though that also making them unsuitable for the vegetarian minority ;)
