      Not for the kids

      "Would you like a big bowl of penne pasta?" asked a smirky Mrs p.
      Well, I have to admit, it's not my favourite type of pasta but hey, ya gotta eat. So of course I said yes.

      So, imagine my surprise when I was presented with a mouth-watering dish of little yellow boabies swimming in a creamy, cheesy white sauce. When I say yellow, they were more of a flesh colour...how very, very authentic.

      Oh how I laughed.

      " That's no penne pasta!" I protested, " it's, well, it's something entirely different altogether."
      "So it is, so it is." She laughed.

      What she'd dished up was, in fact, Penis Pasta. Little penis shapes of pasta in an angry, meaning to do business state. Apparently, she'd got this pasta at one of those parties (I've heard of Tupperware and candle parties, but never pasta ones) and thought it would be a jolly wheeze to give me a taste of my own medicine, so to speak.


      I was still laughing.

      Well, once I stopped laughing I'd have to start eating and something about this whole scenario just didn't stand up. Looking at these little wangers, I thought it was going to be hard on my self respect. But mrs p doesn't give a f...care for my self respect so there was little sympathy in that quarter.

      Oh well, being a little bit peckerish, I soon swallowed my pride and dove right in.

      Actually, if you closed your eyes, it was just like eating any other type of pasta which as it's made with 100% durum wheat, I suppose it would be. I can't really comment on the taste as pasta doesn't really have much in the way of flavour anyway, but the white sauce coated the pasta shapes well and the sauce was delicious. The pasta was cooked al dente so was firm to the touch (nothing worse than a flaccid p...pasta shape) and stood up well to the cooking process.

      So, did I enjoy the pasta? Why yes, yes I did. In fact I gobbled up those little suckers in no time at all.
      Would I eat them again? Naw.

      You can buy different varieties of penis pasta in a whole range of places, on and off line but it's generally priced as a novelty or gift item at around £4. Fine for a gift, but not for everyday eating...but then who eats penis every day? Not me, that's for sure.

        Great fun food

        My other half made us some pasta penis a few nights ago. She recieved this as a gift from a friend at her place of work. This pasta penis costs £4 for a pack of 250g of ordinary plain dried pasta shapes which look like very small penises. The pasta is in 2 colours, ordinary off white and a pale pink/salmon colour. Both colours taste exactly the same - bland. There is no smell when it is dried or cooked.

        We cook ours in a large pan of boiling water with a bit of salt added for taste and we leave it to boil for about 14 minutes but no longer as we like it a bit hard (al dente). We mix it with a bit of oil, pine nuts, garlic, cheese and fresh sliced tomatoes and mushrooms and it tastes really nice once we've added all the extra ingredients but on its own it's just plain old ordinary dried tasteless pasta and the only thing different about it is the fact that it is shaped like small willies.

        We ate it togther with a couple of candles, a pint and a twinkle in our eyes and really enjoyed the meal.

        This is just a novelty food that tastes no better or no worse than anything else pasta based but it's fun to cook and eat and it's good to watch the penis shapes swell in the pan of water. Nice to have if you invite frineds round to dinner as it's a bit of a conversation starter.

        Good fun food in penis shapes, recommended.

          Fun penis shaped pasta!

          === The product ===

          This is durum wheat pasta that is in the shape of a man's 'wedding tackle'.

          === The packaging ===

          My pasta came provided in a clear bag that had a cardboard sleeve over it. The words 'penis pasta' and a photograph of a bowl of penis pasta adorned the front of the cardboard sleeve. The cardboard was easy enough to remove and the plastic bag was strong enough to keep the penis pasta protected and clean.

          === Where to buy this & for how much ===

          This can be purchased from Ann Summers stores and the Ann Summers website for £4.00. I did not pay for mine as I won it at a party around the time of my hen do earlier this year. It is quite common for this to be a gift in Ann Summers party raffles as the price is quite reasonable so I guess it does not cost the host too much money to give away.

          === How to cook ===

          This really is just to be cooked as any other pasta. I washed mine first, put it in a pan of water with a pinch of salt, brought it to the boil and then left it to simmer gently for around 20 minutes.

          === Overall opinion ===

          I actually won this at an Ann Summers party and initially thought that I wouldn't ever bother to use this, however, when I got home it felt like too much of a waste to bin it so I put it at the back of the cupboard and on one of the weeks where I ran the cupboards down a little I figured I'd turn this in to a pasta bake for a laugh!

          I pre-cooked this pasta before covering in the sauce and it went just the same as other durum wheat pasta. The pasta cooked well, went soft and was a generous size once cooked. I then covered this in sauce, topped with cheese and baked for just 20 minutes.

          When I served this up to my husband I did not tell him about the unusual shape of the pasta and I merely served it up and then listened to his laughter as he realised that the pasta was shaped like a penis.

          This is a real novelty product, it is ideal for inducing laughter at the dinner table and if you really wanted to you could serve this up as part of a main course at a dinner party and I am sure that, with the right crowd, it would go down a treat.

          This is obviously overpriced as a standard bag of durum wheat pasta, however, this is a real novelty product and you are paying for the fun factor of the product.

          I would eat this again, the taste was just that of standard durum wheat pasta, it cooked in the same amount of time and it was well received in our household. I would definitely aim to win this again if I was at another Ann Summers party just because of the fun effect that this had when I cooked it.

            An ok pasta, but nothing special

            I go to a lot of Ann Summers parties that my friends have, and at most of these there are prizes for games or raffles, and one of the prizes I have bought home from a game was the Penis Pasta!

            This is basically what it sounds like, pasta that is made into small penis shapes. They come in a plastic bag, which is inside a box, made out of a thin cardboard. The picture on the box is a bowl of the penis pasta, cooked and served with sauce and some vegetables or herbs.

            I found it to be quite a giggle, as I like pasta anyways, so this was more than likely going to get eaten at some point. I do not eat pasta very often, as it is quite high in calories for a small portion size, and there is a lot of carbs in it too. I took it home from the party, and my partner looked a bit confused as to why I had it and declared he would not be eating any of this!

            I put the penis pasta in my cupboard, ready to be cooked and eaten another day. Now there has been many a time in my life that I have eaten pasta, and many times I have had to cook pasta, as I am sure many other people on here have. I read the cooking instructions on the box, and they are pretty much the same as any other pasta in the world. Pour some of the dry pasta into a pan of boiling water, and cook for 20 mins.

            I did this, and when it was cooked, I served up the pasta with a sauce and some salad. I was hoping that the pasta would taste just like normal pasta, despite being shaped like penis's, and thankfully it did. It has the exact same taste and consitency as normal pasta, it is just a novelty to look and laugh at whilst you eat. I did find that this pasta was not as filling as normal pastas, and due to the lack of actual pasta in the shapes, I am not really surprised at this.

            Basically, there is not much to this other than it is pasta, shaped like a penis. If you like pasta, then this will be fine for you. You can buy this pasta at Ann Summers parties and Ann Summers stores in the UK. It will cost you £4 a bag, and you can also buy it on their website. I find that £4 is actually quite expensive, especially compared to the price I usually pay for my pasta.

            I still have some of this penis pasta left, as it is not usually my first option for food when I have other styles of pasta in the house. I found that it was nothing special, and when it runs out I do not think I will be rushing out to get some. It may be a good idea for a novelty gift for someone, or as part of a snack or meal for a hen party, but I do not think it will end up being part of my usual food shopping!

            I give this pasta a 3 out of 5, but nothing special and I only partially recommend it.

              Good for girly occasions

              A little while ago, a friend of mine had her hen night. We started with nibbles, before going round town for drinks and drunken debauchery. Everyone contributed a little to the nibbles pile .

              With me being on a diet, I wanted to contribute something healthy, so I could fill up a little and not drink on an empty stomach . I opted for a pasta salad, and when I saw these Penis Pasta in Ann Summers whilst looking for a bride to be banner, I decided to pick some up to give the girls a giggle. Lets face it, pasta salad is boring, but a penis salad is sure to raise a smile .

              A 250g pack cost me £4, although I have since seen it on offer at £3. Apart from being penis shaped, it really is just a bog standard dried pasta, although I did like that the penises come in two colours, a standard white pasta and a pretty salmon pink colour . Cooking this up is simple - just boil in slightly salted water for a few minutes, and the jobs done .

              I did try a piece of pasta on it's own, and really there isn't a lot to say about it - it tastes like any other plain dried pasta . I added a little chicken, tomato, onion, and garlic to mine, and decided to go fancy-french, calling it Coq au Cock !

              The pasta was eaten at the pre drink nibbles, and did raise a few eyebrows with the amusing little shapes. It was a great conversaton starter, and we even used some of the uncooked pasta to attach to necklaces as little pendants, as well as using some of the uncooked shells to glue to our 'dare' cards .

              I think for a hen night, or even just as a giggly meal at home, these are great fun . They are a little pricy, and you are paying for the shape, since the pasta itself doesn't taste like anything special, but as a bit of a novelty these are a fun little buy .
