Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Unilever Doner Kebab Pot Noodle/ Wot? Not in a Pot Noodle Confirmed sighting: Unilever Doner Kebab Pot Noodle/ Wot? Not in a Pot Noodle
Posted: 22:27 Sun 24-May-2009. Price: 38p. Location: Sainsbury's, Denton. Sub-flavours: Beef and Tomato; Chicken and Mushroom; Fried Chicken; Sweet and Sour.
They may be pushing the Doner Kebab flavour on TV, but that hasn't deterred "Dave" from seeking out the other varieties of Wot? Not in a Pot Noodle, reporting: Where to start? Pot Noodle without a pot? A sauce sachet... of powder?! A pot noodle you cook in the microwave? I tested the Beef and Tomato variant, the classic Pot Noodle flavour. Noodles were not the thick usual ones, but more like the Koka-style cheap and thin instant Asian noodle packs. In the bag, the noodles were plain, and the large sachet contained powdered Beef and Tomato flavour. There was no tomato sauce sachet. The end result was heavily beef-flavoured, not bad as far as weird Pot Noodle variations go, but probably not to be repeated. There was no gooey sauce after preparation, nor any soya beef-style chunks.

However, they are only 38p. An interesting variation which I think will be consigned to history. Having access to the raw powder-power of Pot Noodle is interesting, however, and offers a number of culinary opportunities. The powder, unprepared, is actually not so pleasant. These remove the sheen from the Pot Noodle experience, and for this reason mark a flawed direction for the range to take.

...And as for the Doner Kebab one - it's believably lamb-like in some respects, though take a taste before you add the chilli sauce, as that tends to overwhelm everything else. Similarly, it's quite fun to add extra jalapenos to the Bowl of Meatballs (1.19) that tops Subway's new Snack Menu (from 79p), and to try and come up with more dishes they could rustle up from the ingredients they've already got hanging around their kitchens?

Comment: Agree entirely on the "Doner Kebab" flavour; the lamb taste is very well done and certainly makes the kitchen smell like that "just come out of the pub and grabbed a takeaway" aroma.

Comment: I actually quite like this product (especially the sweet & sour). I've always found Super Noodles to be slightly lacking in flavour - there's not quite enough powder in the sachet for my liking. You get plenty of flavouring powder in the not-in-a-pot range.

Comment: I eat noodles but I'd rather go for toxic-free prepared fabulous food hampers, vegetable hampers from http://www.bradfordsbakers.com. No preservatives foods are a big Yes for me. But I know there are noodles now that are toxic-free..quite a feat indeed!

Comment: It took me weeks to track down this one, finally the missus found them on sale in Ealing Tesco. The black pot and pungent spice nose immediately recalls the Bombay Bad Boy flavour although the noodle mix appears darker. Once made up with boiling water a vaguely lamb-y smell emerges. Nothing wrong with the flavour, somewhat spicy and meaty. The chilli sauce in the sachet is fiery although nowhere near the tongue scorching lunacy of that supplied with the triple B. I enjoyed this, but then I love doner kebabs, and pot noodles - you sense this might prove a harder sell with the public at large.

Comment: Now they are doing Pot Noodle cup-a-soups, which defies all laws of nature and man and would probably make Stuart Campbell have to go for a bit of a lie down.
