Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Golden Wonder The Nation's Noodle Confirmed sighting: Golden Wonder The Nation's Noodle
Posted: 18:04 Sun 04-Oct-2009. Price: 89p. Location: Thornton Cleveleys Morrisons. Sub-flavours: Chicken and Mushroom, Chip Shop Curry, Beef and Tomato, Sweet and Sour (Noodles); Spaghetti Bolognese, Macaroni Cheese, Spicy Tomato (Pasta). Nutritional unusualness: Curry flavour contains 6% apple and raisins, 379 kcal, 11.8g fat, 1.63g salt.
Long-time instant noodle connoisseur "Lee Taylor" reports that he "Spotted these in Morrisons, there is also a a range of pastas in the same style tubs" - and, to be honest, he doesn't sound much more excited about them than "Kevin", who submitted the slightly more PR-flavoured: "Golden Wonder is back with Noodles in a pot - just add water and all that jazz... Their website is at thenationsbest.co.uk."

...In somewhat less vegetarian alternatives: Chicken Tikka is Subway's new Sub Of The Day for Mondays, though competition is hotting up there from the likes of Rustlers' Hot Subs Tangy Meatballs (initially only 1 in Morrisons); according to some, Young's microwaveable fish fingers could be "the fastfood breakthrough of the decade"; and, top marks for trying, but I wasn't really bowled over by Burger King's mini breakfast pancakes or their Bacon Caesar Angus (pic uploaded at full size in case you wanted to know that the Onion Straws were "cooked in the same oil as chicken and fish products"). Also, at a staggering 5.99 for a "Value meal", I'd rather go to the so-far consistently excellent Banger Bros.

Comment: It tastes like vomit when you attempt to eat it. Absolutely foul.

Comment: the sweet and sour golden wonder pot is rubbish, really bad. The spaghetti one smells awful.

Comment: Yep, the macaroni cheese one is awful. Half of it was still 'crunchy' even though I left it to stand for over 5 minutes.

Comment: On the plus side - at least they don't do a "Vomit" flavour that smells like Macaroni cheese!

Comment: Phillerena: lol, yes my boy ate the crunchy macaroni one too. I just had to suffer the smell.

Comment: I'm not sure what's more appalling. The product, or the fact that someone allowed their children to eat it. Perfect example of the poor moral and dietary standards of modern day parenting, and yes I am serious.

Comment: Richard, if you want to lecture people about poor diet, you've come to the wrong site to do it. I mean, just LOOK at us.

Comment: Tofu and alfalfa sprouts for Tarquin was it Ricky? Jeez, the boy sees it on the supermarket shelf when with us getting the weekly shopping of microwave pizzas, Ginsters Pasties, Rola cola and Brilliant Blue (E133) coloured vodka. Through all his agitation and slurred speech he says, "Thish would be good on Shnackshpot, hic *" You cannot deprive them can you.

Mr Bishop. That's not much to draw a conclusion on either the person or the nation as a whole is it? You jumped up, trolling, daily mail reading, moral panicking moron!

Comment: Interesting rather that totally successful take on the classic Beef and Tomato pot. Certainly a full flavour but the aroma was somewhat vile and I was regretting the choice well before the conclusion.

Comment: Well Big Fish. Lucky for me that I don't live in the UK or my taxes would be paying for your obesity related healthcare.

Comment: Ugh! worst pot noodles yet, spag bol was unbelievably bitter and tomatoey I'll stick with asian noodles.

Comment: To say this is a relatively late contribution to the pot noodle world the flavouring is not to be admired.

P.S. Richard Bishop we dont care about your deluded views of food or any other subject.

Comment: Insightful. I would suggest that if you keep feeding your hugely obese frame this sort of rubbish then the resultant flatulence may be mistaken for your comments.
