Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Unilever Pot Noodle Southern Fried Chicken flavour Confirmed sighting: Unilever Pot Noodle Southern Fried Chicken flavour
Posted: 21:29 Thu 14-Jul-2005. Price: No idea sorry, I'm useless at money, less than a fiver I should have thought. Location: Tesco in Bournemouth, the large one near the hospital. Nutritional unusualness: None noted.
"Philip Buckley-Mellor" reports: I was excited, I love Pot Noodle, I love Southern Fried Chicken - this union could surely only be for man's greater good. I raced to the kettle to begin the delicate preparation of this fine meal - the true macrodiet. It was hard not to dip in early for a taste but I held out until it was ready. It came with a "Tangy Tomato" sauce by the way, with some inane flavour-specifc strapline printed on the back, I can't repeat it. The first mouthful, unremarkable but welcome, more tomato flavour than chicken disappointingly. Further investigation proved me wrong as the word on my lips was indeed "Chicken" - watery, tomato'y chicken but chicken none-the-less. Something of an opportunity lost but a worthy addition to the "regular" range.

..."Philip" may be "useless at money" but he's clearly not bad at recreating noodle-eating experiences - while, in other plastic-packed poultry, I recently paid 1.15 for an Oriental Chicken Flavour Blue Dragon Noodle Wok at a convenience store in St John's Wood, London. Apparently "suitable for vegetarians and vegans", these at last address the now-famous Campbell conundrum and, in what may be a first, now offer the option of microwave-cooking your instant noodles (once you've added cold water, and the vegetable and seasoning sachets).

Comment: Pot noodles, ive sick of seeing them and hearing about them, the worse snack ever! Southern Fried Chicken ewww worst flavor ever! Coca Cola or pepsi should bring out a product that is ONLY avilable to the UK, 'cause all the other contries get products first, its not fair! The UK soft drinks need a boost in new flavors!

Comment: Peperami noodles come with microwave instructions. Also, please come back, Stuart Campbell, all is forgiven. You were right all along, 3D Death Chase really is the greatest Spectrum game ever.

Comment: I tried one today (found it in my local Costcutters convenience store for 89p) Bland - no real taste of anything at all, not even of the grated chilli pepper-ish things that were in the mix. Not even the Tangy Tomato sauce did anything for the overall taste. Won't be bothering with it again - I'll stick to the Spicy Curry of Bombay Big Boy flavours.
