Confirmed sighting: Batchelor's Super Noodles Cheese and Ham flavour
Posted: 23:22 Thu 30-Jun-2005. Price: 50p-ish. Location: Asda, Wrexham. Sub-flavours: Loads of them. Nutritional unusualness: 7g fat per 100g.
"Daniel Thornton" reports: I don't like Super Noodles usually. They're ludicrously expensive for what they are and then usually taste like cardboard distilled through a tramp's spare sock to me. And Asda do their Smart Price noodles for 9p, and they taste only slightly worse, so I may as well be 40p up on the deal, eh? Surprisingly then I did enjoy these, despite the worrying orange glow afforded them by the big pack of cheese flavouring. Tasting like cheese and onion crisps mated with smokey bacon there is almost no residual tramp sock flavour which is a bonus. They don't absorb the water too well in the microwave though, so a couple of slices of white bread may be required to mop up the residuals. Of course, the fact that I enjoyed them doesn't answer why I bought them in the first place when I usually hate the blasted things.
...In other savoury celebrations: Delicious! You can really taste the baked beans (in tomato sauce) Nice big fat bangers! was "Zeddy's" verdict on the long-elusive Heinz Pork and Baked Bean Sausages located for £1.49 in Asda, Hamilton, Scotland, while fellow Scottish export "Stuart Campbell" may already be on the case of Walkers' imminent "Chicken and Heinz BBQ", "Classic Sausage and Heinz Tomato Ketchup", and "Classic Heinz Tomato Ketchup" flavoured crisps (from 28p).

Comment: Bah, pesky limited editions again. Incidentally, do any Snackspot readers know of a shop, anywhere in the UK, where Walkers crisps actually sell for 28p a bag?

Comment: What happened to your Small Processed Peas? I can't find them in our local Supermarkets or shops. They are the only peas I will eat. Also, please bring back Tandoori Noodles.
