We don't just let any old noodles into the Pot Noodle snack range. 5% fat and 50% less salt across the range since 2005 just isn't enough. They also need a mouth-watering flavour, natural charm, and the public's support. Once that's gone, they're out. Just look what happened to Sizzling Bacon, Mexican Fajita, and the Posh Noodle brothers... Ouch.
This Pot Noodle snack is sweet like kittens, but sour like an ex. Sweet like a cupcake, and sour like a lemon. Sweet like a daisy chain, sour like a grapefruit hat necklace. Sweet like my gran, yet sour like my Auntie Phyllis.
Like Pot Noodle snack themselves, the Tikka Masala dish was born and bred in the UK. To get the full experience of this authentic Tikka Masala flavour, we suggest you eat it with a sachet of mango chutney and a plate of chips.
This Pot Noodle snack is in no way implying that boys from Bombay are bad, or that anyone from Bombay is, in fact, bad. The hot-fire chilli sauce does kick some serious butt, though. Also available as King Pot.
This is an explosion on the taste buds. In fact, the first prototype of Sweet & Spicy had to be withdrawn because the mix of sweet, spicy, and mango chutney flavours actually created a sonic boom in one tester's gums.
Original Curry is now considered a retro flavour amongst noodle followers, and you'll often see a sachet of sweet mango chutney poking out of the pocket of a pair of skinny jeans. Its favourite tunes include 'Don't You Want Me' by Human League, and anything by Bananarama.
This flavour caused some controversy when first introduced. Mixing meat and veg flavours was unheard of before this time, but we threw in a sachet of tomato sauce and it was welcomed with open mouths. In fact, Beef & Tomato King Pot had to be brought back due to popular demand and some rather threatening letters. Also available as King Pot and Mini Pot.
Literally translated, 'Chow Mein' means 'Hungry Man'. Legend has it that if you repeat the words 'Chow Mein' four times while looking in the sachet of soy sauce, Mr Miyagi will appear.
Chicken and mushroom can be traced all the way back to ancient Rome. The Romans celebrated 'Orgia Pullus et Funghi' or 'Festival of Chicken and Mushroom', which could last for weeks, depending on how many chickens were available. Celebrate with a sachet of soy sauce. Also available as King Pot and Mini Pot.
King Pot reigned for over 26 years in the early 17th Century, before being usurped by King Cup III in 1675. Now King Pot lives a quiet but satisfactory life as an extra large container for Pot Noodle snacks. King Pots like to be referred to as 'Sir'. Available in Chicken & Mushroom, Beef & Tomato, Original Curry and Bombay Bad Boy.
