Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Peperami Noodles Confirmed sighting: Peperami Noodles
Posted: 21:50 Thu 12-May-2005. Price: 39p/ 89g. Location: Sainsbury's, North London. Sub-flavours: Original Peperami, Fried Chicken, Hot and Spicy. Nutritional unusualness: Noodles contain almost the "full house" of vegetable oil antioxidants - Gamma-tocopherol, Delta-tocopherol and, my personal favourite, Alpha-tocopherol as well.
Snackspot reports: Damn, forgot to mention that I've been "helping out" the free London railway station newspaper The London Line with their snack coverage, this week describing these Super Noodles-alikes as "the closest you'll get to the meaty aromas of a Mongolian barbecue without using more than [just] boiling water". I haven't tried the Fried Chicken ones yet but the other two are mysteriously delicious, though (as "Stuart" pointed out before), the Super-Noodles-style preparation ritual seems hilariously convoluted to our modern eyes. I mean, if I had as much as 10 or 15 minutes to spare, then I might seriously consider microwaving a real meal (with vegetables and everything), wouldn't I?

...Anyway, in other meaty mischief: The Grocer reports that UK food companies are seriously looking into a new form of microwaveable steak packaging which combines "a self-venting polypropylene co-extrusion", "Magic Marinades", and a "special" injection of brine; while there's a still few days left to try and catch New Covent Garden Soup Company's "The Clangers" Spinach, Pea and Mint soup (as made by "The Soup Dragon", rather than out of actual Clangers, but you never really know, do you?)

Comment: Are the fried chicken ones part of a new range? Just that I'm sure I tried fried chicken supernoodles last year. Had a greasy taste, I dont touch noodles anymore.

Comment: sorry, I should have clarified that a bit better - they're "Fried Chicken" flavour noodles *that also come with slices of Peperami*

(I was wondering if these were actually an attempt by Unilever to muscle in on Super Noodles territory, but then couldn't quite work out if Super Noodle-makers Batchelors were also owned by Unilver anyway...)

Comment: i saw the ads for these and thought they were just suggesting adding peperami to supernoodles. i bet you're right about the unilever ownership, the packages are way too similar for them not to be.

Comment: Unilever used to own Super-Noodles, but were forced to sell them by the competition authority to Campbells as they bought Bestfoods - (POT NOODLE! Micro-Noodles, Knorr, Hellmanns etc).

Comment: After getting a pack of these for free at work I figured i might give them a go. I wasn't expecting much since im used to tesco blue and white stripe 7p noodles, and I have to say, its probably worth saving your money and going for them. The peperami pieces were so small and dry, and the noodles were, well, noodles. One redeeming factor is the size of the flavour sachet, admittedly for 7p you dont tend to get a lot :-)

Comment: Well i have to disagree with the majority of the comments above. Athough i admit they are not particulary healthy the hot and spicy peperami noodles are fabulous as a snack and i find them very tasty.
