      Great amount perfect easy meal

      God I just loveeee the beef super noodles so easy to prepare and cook well the easiest I know. These super noodles come in various different flavours chicken, beef, curry and many others. I can normally grab these for about 70p per packet from home bargains but you can buy them pretty much anywhere however at a higher cost so have a look about as some places have the on offers. Ok I normally microwave mine so I scrunch the packet before I open it.. I pour them into a bowl and then sprinkle the flavouring all over the top then I put boiling water from the kettle to cover them I don't normally measure it I just guess. I put them in the microwave for 7 and a half minutes and once they are done I leave them to stand for a while as they are super hot. Then eat mmm delicious - not exactly the heaviest meal but it's just so quick and easy and full of flavour!

      Disadvantages

      Stop my rumbling tummy every time!

      I may no be a student but I do love super noodles!! A very cheap product, very tasty, may not be the healthiest but are very yummy!

      Flavours

      Supernoodles come in a variety of flavours my favourite being the normal chicken, but you can curry ranging in mild to spicy, BBQ, Chinese Chicken and Bacon.

      How to cook

      Easiest item to cook in the world, you simply open the packet add hot water and either microwave or do in a pan once noodles soften add the flavour packet!

      The tricky part is trying to gauge how much water you want, some people like noodles with lots of yummy juice, however i prefer mine with a lot less.

      Unique Twist?

      I don't tend to eat my noodles just on their own, i usually either add some chedder cheese and ensure its melted in which makes them super gooey noodles which is gorgeous. Sometimes I make some toast and have Cheesy super noodles on toasts which makes a lovely snack.

      Where to buy?

      You can buy them from any leading super market as well as cheap shops like B&M for around 50p

      They are ideal if you are camping, fancy a quick easy snack or just feel like being unhealthy!

        Disadvantages

        A great dish if your feeling a little lazy

        There comes a time in every week where I simply don't feel like cooking, slaving over a stove for around half an hour. That's where the lovely Batchrlors super noodles come in for me. There very cheap to buy and very easy to cook, and that's right, tastes delicious well, most flavours might I add.

        The packaging comes in a foil dark blue packet with the super noodles and Batchrlors logo on the front. It also states what flavour the noodles are. It has a picture of them on the front which is enough to make me buy them because they look yummy! It also has some easy to read cooking instructions on the back and a bit about the product.

        The super noodles come in a variety of flavours which include:
        Mild Curry - my favourite
        Chicken
        Bacon
        BBQ Beef
        Chinese Chow Mein to name but a few.

        They are really easy to cook, doing them either in the microwave or on the hob. Just put some water to the boil and add the noodles. Inside the packet is a sachet of powder which brings the flavour to the noodles. Which ever way you cook them it only takes around 5-10 minutes to cook.

        Of course there not the healthiest of options, what is when it's pretty much instantly cooked? They hold quite a bit of fat and are high in calories.

        The noodles themselves taste lovely once cooked and are very soft when cooked right. If over cooked they tend to get quite sticky. It says on the packet that they can be served as part of a meal for two. But personally I eat the whole packet as a quick meal with some bread on my breaks at work.

        This product is really good if you have a tight budget or a student as its only around 60p in most super markets. In some you see them on offer at 4 for £2. So there always a bargain.

        I do enjoy super noodles, they give you a break on proper cooking and is nice to your money. I honestly can't see why I would stop buying them. Always recommended.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          .

          Batchelors Super Noodles are available in a variety of flavours including, Chicken, BBQ Beef and Curry to name just a few. My personal favourite, and the one this review will concentrate on today is Chicken.

          The noodles come in 100g blue packets' featuring a picture of the noodles on the front with a gold star in the background. The flavour is clearly displayed underneath and the Super Noodles logo surrounds the picture of the noodles. At the bottom of the packet is the bar containing nutritional information, which I will cover later in the review. Inside the packet you will find a block of freeze dried noodles and a packet of powdered flavouring.


          How to Cook
          Super Noodles can be cooked in two ways, the first is by using the microwave, as we don't have a microwave I will tell you the packet states that you should place the noodles in a microwave dish and empty the flavour packet onto them. Then add 300ml of boiling water, microwave them for 5 to 6 minutes and then stir and serve.

          The second way to cook these noodles is on the hob in a saucepan, this is the way I cook these noodles. The packet tells me a slightly different method to the one I use so I will tell you both.

          Firstly, the packet way, add the noodles to 300ml of water and bring to the boil, then add the flavour packet and reduce heat leaving the noodles to simmer for about 4 minutes or until all of the liquid is absorbed. I found that when I cooked my noodles this way they didn't taste as good and they didn't seem to absorb the water very well even though I had left them to simmer for a good 8 to 10 minutes. I also found that because the flavouring is added after the water is boiled the noodles didn't seem to have such a nice rich flavour.

          Ok, so my variation of the above is to boil the water in the kettle, place the noodles into the saucepan with the flavouring sprinkled over the top, I then add the pre-boiled water but only 250ml instead of 300ml. I then put the hob on a low heat, we have an electric hob so I find number 3 is the ideal heat setting. After about a minute I turn the noodles over and give them a stir to be sure they are all submerged in the water and the flavouring is well mixed in, I then leave the noodles simmering on this heat for around 5 to 8 minutes giving them a bit of a stir halfway through. Once all of the water is absorbed and the noodles are looking nice and juicy I pour them into a bowl and wait a couple of minutes for them to cool before enjoying.


          Taste
          When cooked the way I have described above I find Chicken Super Noodles taste simply delicious! The noodles themselves are thick and juicy and full of flavour as they seem to absorb the flavouring more if it is added at the start of cooking. The noodles are chicken flavoured and I would say the flavouring is quite strong which makes them very tasty and in the past I have easily eaten 2 packets of these one after the other, not because they're not filling, but simply because I was Super Noodle mad! The noodles are quite filling and while they are not necessarily a proper meal I think they are great for lunch times at work or a quick meal if you are going out in the evening.


          Nutritional Info
          A single serving of chicken Super Noodles, which incidentally is half of one packet, will provide you with:
          263 Calories
          1.7g Sugar
          11.8g Fat
          6.0g Saturates
          1.00g Salt

          Batchelors state these noodles are not suitable for vegetarians and the allergy advice is that they contain wheat, barley, gluten, celery and milk.


          Price
          Batchelors Chicken Super Noodles are available in most supermarkets for around the 60p to 80p mark, depending on where you shop, they are often on offer in ASDA with 3 packets for £1.50, but on my recent trip back to the UK I managed to get 3 packets for £1 in Poundland, so I would say to keep your eyes open.


          Other Flavours
          As I said at the start of the review, Chicken is my favourite flavour in the Super Noodles range, however in the past I have tried the BBQ Beef flavour and while I do like it, I find that I have to be in the right mood for it as for me the taste is a little too strong and the smell of them is over powering and can make me feel a little ill.

          I have also tried the Southern Fried Chicken flavour, I like this flavour as an alternative to chicken if it is sold out or if I fancy a change, but personally I don't think they taste very much like Southern Fried Chicken, or even chicken, but they do have a nice moreish and very mild spiciness to the flavour and the aftertaste is kind of like chicken.

          I have never tried the curry flavour so I cannot comment on the taste. I haven't tried them because I don't like curry and I haven't tried the Sweet and Sour flavour either simply because I haven't got round to it yet!


          Recommended?
          A big yes from me! I love Batchelors Chicken Super Noodles more than any other noodles, I was rather excited when I stocked up on them on my recent visit home, but then I ate them all rather quickly! So, needless to say I will be stocking up on them on my next visit! They taste delicious and for me, they are perfect for a quick lunchtime meal or a quick fix in the evening if we are going out and don't have a lot of time.

          Thanks for reading :)

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Great if your in a rush and in my opinion the best tasting instant noodle product out there.

            Hi I have a similar review penned under the same username on ciao


            Taste

            The original and spicy curry flavours are my favourite although sweet Tai flavour is also good and is a nice way to vary up your options from the normal. It tastes more "full" and satisfying than the own brand makes I have tried and after you have finished one packet the taste makes you want to come back for more. I eat these most days and they are just very enjoyable to eat in general.

            Price:

            This can vary a lot usually its around 1 pound for a packet however tesco online are offerinng 3 for 1.80 just now which is a pretty good deal relative to how the product normally performs. There are cheaper alternatives out their on the market that retail for as little as 20 pence per packet but as far as exactly equivalent noodle based products go all the cheaper options are ""much"" inferior from a taste perspective. However if one branches of into pasta based competitors then you can find products which taste better and cost less, particularly when compared to this flavour of brand.

            Nutritional Value:

            Typically they contain approx 7g fat, 22g carbohydrates and an impressive 3 g of protein per 100g and they weigh about 300g and checking the different packets in my cupboard confirms that each flavour is very similar in nutritional value to each of its cousins. So what do these figures mean? Well depending on what site you go to an average man (From range 5'3-6'4) should consume around 50-75g of fat depending on their height so 7g is not a big amount at all.

            The average man of 5'9 ish height and unremarkable stature should eat at least 200g of carbs a day with some sites going as high as 350 g of Carbs so again 22g as part of a lunch seems about right considering breakfast and dinner often supply a person with more carbs than their lunch. Three grams of protein is an added bonus in a product that would not typically strike the user as screaming of "this product is good for protein".

            Obviously the product has its downsides from a nutritional point of view, in particular it has 30% saturated fat which is the kind of fat that can in excess,and as part of a sedentary life style lead to high cholesterol and clog up the arteries. How does it compare to a pot noodle? Well pot noodles actually have less fat at a mere 5.7 grams for a 20g heavier product, 22g of carbs and 4g of protein so surprisingly, to my mind at least, pot noodles are actually healthier for you than super noodles. Therefore pot noodles are a better choice of instant food if your trying to go on a diet, although this whole area of the food market may not be for you if your trying to become more healthy!

            Intended Audience:

            These are a product which scream "student" as they are quick to prepare and cheaper than buying in fresh food and students often have to live on a tight budget if not living at home. However due to the problems in the economy and wages not keeping up with the increase of fuel costs even this market may be deserting the product for cheaper own brand alternatives. Bachelors does not help itsefl by pricing its self so much dearer than the own brand products, if it could find a way to lower its price to bring it a fair bit closer to the own brand alternatives it would see the student market return.

            There are another category of people these products are aimed at and that is those who wan't to just make quick meals or lunches and as the cooking time is only around 6 minutes including boiling the water before adding the noodles it is perfect for those of us who are constrained for time or who would just spend any free time they have watching tv or going for a walk than having to spend it all in the kitchen.


            Closing Remarks
            Overall I would say this that this brand is the best noodle brand out their and has the best tasting products on the market in the area of instant noodles with my favourites being Spicy Curry and Original flavour and Tai green curry flavour being another alternative as well. This product has a wide variety of flavours so you should be able to find something that you like if you try out each of the flavours bachelors have to offer.

            As mentioned the price could and should be a little less however its often worth it for the extra taste packed into super noodles that makes them outshine the competition.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Super disgusting Noodles.

              So yesterday in my review about Marmite I mentioned that:

              A) I rarely eat instant noodles because they're kind of vile, and

              B) On the rare occasions that I do eat them I flavour them with Marmite instead of the sachet of flavouring that comes with them.

              Therefore I have no idea why I've just consumed a packet of Super Noodles, flavoured powder and all. Anyway I may as well review them now and spread the word of my now definitely confirmed hatred of instant noodles.

              --Super Noodles--

              Super Noodles are a very well known brand of instant noodles made by Batchelors and sold in the UK and Ireland in range of flavours. These flavours include chicken, spicy curry, barbeque beef, thai green curry, and the bacon flavour which I ate on this occasion. They come in a 100g rectangular 'block' as they are hard when uncooked and are packaged in a bright blue packet which displays the flavour of the noodles and a picture of some of them on a fork. The noodles themselves are unflavoured as you get a sachet of flavoured powder in the packet also.

              --Preparation--

              I prepared my noodles by cooking them in a saucepan of boiling water and stiring in the sachet of flavouring as I cooked them. As I mentioned before I normally use Marmite as the flavouring but I smelt the sachet of bacon flavoured powder and it smelt just like smoky bacon crisps. I love smoky bacon crisps so I couldn't resist trying the provided flavouring on this occasion.

              I only cooked them for the minimum time I could as I didn't want them to go mushy so I only cooked them for about a minute. Unfortunately they were still quite mushy despite this. Once they were cooked I simply put them in a bowl, ready to eat.

              --Consumption--

              So the title of this review conveys my feelings about how the noodles looked once they were ready. I was looking even less forward to eating them by this point, but did anyway. They were very much lacking in taste, and just too mushy in texture. I could smell the bacon flavour but I couldn't really taste it. I just felt like it was a waste of time eating them as it was unenjoyable and I just kind of ate them for the sake of it because I didn't want to throw them away.

              Most annoyingly, I'm still hungry. Really hungry. Like I feel like I didn't even eat anything and for the amount of calories in them I could have had a full meal, or I could have least have had something tastier, like chips.

              --(Lack of) Nutrition--

              Nutritional values vary by flavour but the amount of calories in a block of these noodles is about 530, fat content is about 24g and sugar about 4g. The suggested serving it gives on the pack is actually half the block but I'm still really hungry after eating a full one. I suppose some people might have half a block as part of a meal with other things.

              For 530 calories I really wish I'd eaten something yummier.

              --Prices & Availability--

              Super Noodles are currently 3 for £1.80 at Tesco, but the price of them varies. They're normally about 80p each and can be bought from all supermarkets and most smaller grocery stores.

              If you are an eater of instant noodles you'll know that most of the large supermarkets sell their own brand variations for about 10p per block. They are normally a bit smaller than a block of Super Noodles and don't come in as big a range of flavours but other than that I can't tell the different between 10p noodles or 80p Super Noodles. If I ever was to purchase instant noodles again (which is definitely not going to happen) I would just go for the cheap 10p ones.

              --Overall Opinion--

              As I suspected/already knew, instant noodles are a flavour-lacking, mushy, unappetising, nutrition-less excuse for food. Super Noodles are a brand of these noodles that taste the same as all the others but cost more. I vow never to eat them again!

              Having said all this, I'm guessing that people must like this product as it has 4 stars on Dooyoo so maybe it's just me. One thing I will say is they are very quick to prepare.

                A Great Side Dish Or Perfect For Lunch

                I have been getting Batchelors Super Noodles for years now. Every now and again, I cook some of these noodles and have them for lunch. They taste very nice and are rich it whatever flavour you choose to buy. It comes with a sachet of flavouring that you stir in with the noodles during cooking, and you'll be surprised how so much taste comes from a relatively small sachet.

                ~Cooking~

                I usually cook Super Noodles on the hob because I find that it tastes better this way. They are very quick and easy to cook. Simply add the noodles to a pan filled with 300ml of water and bring to the boil (I usually break up the noodles first to make them cook quicker). Then, add the flavouring from the sachet and stir. Leave the noodles to simmer for around 3 to 4 minutes or until the water has been absorbed. Then, serve and enjoy! The whole cooking process on the hob takes around 7 to 8 minutes which makes it quick and easy to make lunch.

                As well as being able to cook the noodles on the hob, you can cook them in the microwave. I have done this before but I do it very rarely due to the fact that it tastes better when done on the hob. Anyway, put the noodles and 300ml of boiling water in a relatively large bowl. Add the flavouring from the sachet and put the bowl into the microwave. For an 850 watt microwave, heat on full power for 5 minutes but leave uncovered. Then, stir and serve.

                ~Using~

                Super Noodles can be used for all kinds of things. Each packet serves one person if eaten for lunch, but can serve two if it is part of a main meal. There is plenty of noodles in the packet, and I struggle to eat them all for lunch, so I have no doubt that one packet could easily serve 2 people if it is part of a main meal, possible even three.

                ~Nutritional Information~

                The great thing about Super Noodles is that if they are eaten for lunch, they give you all the nutritional things that the average lunch meal would give you. For half a packet, the Super Noodles have:

                264 Calories
                1.6g of Sugar
                11.8g of Fat
                6.0g of Saturates (Which is quite a lot)
                1.25g of Salt

                So, they do provide you with lots of nutrients, although it is quite high in saturates which is not such a good thing. Especially if you have a whole packet for lunch as this takes up 60% of the daily guideline amount.

                ~General~

                The packaging for Super Noodles is mainly dark blue, with a picture of some noodles on a fork as the focal point. At the top, there is the red bachelors sign and at the bottom, it tells you what flavour the noodles are and all of the nutritional information. On the back, it gives you all of the cooking instructions and ingredients and other things such as an expiration date and contact information. In Tesco, they cost 68p per packet. I think that this is quite cheap for what you get, and especially as it is made by a well known brand.

                I store the Super Noodles in a cupboard. They do not have to be refridgerated, but it is recommended that they are kept in a cool, dry place.

                Like I said before, the taste of the Super Noodles are very nice, and the flavour is quite strong and recognisable. My favourite is barbecue beef, but they come in a variety of different flavours such as bacon and chicken, and more advanced flavours such as Chow mein with Chinese sauce.

                Overall, I would definitely recommend this product as it is quick, easy and simple to make, and can be eaten as part of a main meal or for lunch on its own. They taste very nice and the small sachet difinetely gives you a strong flavour.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                A quick, cheap and easy snack meal!

                When I was 20 I went on a girls holiday to Greece with my friend, as I was a student and she was only working part time we needed to keep to a tight budget. We booked a self-catering apartment and decided to take a few food items with us that would allow us to make some cheap easy meals in the apartment so that we did not spend a fortune on food and therefore would have more to spend on Ouzo! One of the items we took with us was super noodles, not only were they fairly light weight they were also easy to cook and cheap! Now I have really only recently started eating these again as my new work place has quite limited cooking facilities but with it being winter I prefer to have something hot for lunch so have started purchasing the super noodles as they can be cooked easily and quickly in the microwave.

                Currently in Iceland you can purchase a packet of the Bachelor super noodles for just £0.60, they also have an offer on at the moment, 5 packets for £2.00. To be honest this is the cheapest I have seen super noodles priced for some time as from when I used to purchase them they seemed to have inflated in price.

                The super noodles come in a large variety of flavours including:
                - Chinese chow mein
                - Chicken
                - Bacon
                - BBQ Beef
                - Mild Curry

                The super noodles come in a foil packet which is dark blue in colour and has a picture of the noodles wrapped around a fork on the front. Also on the front of the packet there is some basic nutritional information and a yellow triangle which states that the noodles contain no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. On the back of the packet you will find the full nutritional information, ingredients listing and cooking instructions. When you open the packet you will find a smaller foil pack inside which contains the powder flavouring which you need to add to the noodles when cooking, this packet also has a cooking tip printed on the front which I think is a nice touch.

                The super noodles are very easy to make and you can cook them either on the hob or in the microwave. Either method is very quick and will only take your around 5 minutes to go from dried in the packet to fully cooked.

                As you will probably imagine something that is instant to cook is not going to be the healthiest option as they are quite high in calories and fat.

                The noodles themselves are quite fine and cook easily to become very soft. You do need to be careful not to overcook them as they can become a little dry and sticky. I generally eat super noodles on their own as a lunch time meal mostly at work as they are really quick and easy to cook. It does state on the packet that half a pack serves two as of part of a main meal but to be honest I cannot really imagine serving these as part of a meal but that is obviously just my own personal opinion.

                Overall I will continue to purchase the bachelor super noodles, especially the chicken and the bacon as they are my favourite flavours. They make a cheap and cheerful snack meal and come in packets which are easy to transport.

                  A great student meal!

                  Being a student I find that sometimes (particularly just before my student loan comes in) I need to eat on the cheap. Supernoodles is a great way to do this! The price varies depending on the supermarket, however I find that Home Bargains usually does Super Noodles for a very low price. With a variety of flavours to choose from it is great for when you are feeling a bit peckish. I would not recommend eating Super Noodles on a regular basis as they aren't very healthy and can get a bit boring, however it makes a nice additional to a plain meal or is a nice lunch throughout the day. My favourite flavour is the chicken flavour, it is classic and simple, and I also enjoy adding a bit of chilli to my super noodles to spice them up a bit. As no other ingredients are needed other than water it makes this product so quick and easy to make. Overall Supernoodles is a great student meal!

                  use for camping

                  I really am a lover of fresh and healthy food. However, as with pot noodle, there is place in my cooking repetoir for super noodles!
                  These are basically dried noodles which get boiled in water and powdered flavour added. They have very little vitamins but for an accompaniment or a quick snack, what can I say. They are pretty good.
                  Flavours all tend to be the same to me really. Just kind of noodley flavours. These are grat to take hiking and mix withboiling water over the camp stove and there you are a nice warm noodle dinner. Add a bit of tabasco and they taste better!

                  Super noodles are pretty super at the right time. Not for an everyday meal but great if hiking or needing a quick hot meal.
                  Also great to have when you get back in from the pub and so much cheaoper than a kebab!

                  There are lots of flavours but they are all very samey so dont get over excited! They are about £1 for a pack so not breaking the bank. There are supermarket own brand for this too as there seems to be for everything at the moment. To be honest you cant really get any worse or any better so they are more or less the same too. If the supermarket brand is cheaper, get that!!

                  Student food at it's very best

                  Like most people who review Batchelor's Super Noodles, I am of a very specific age and socio-economic group (i.e. poor student living away from home for the first time and faced with the very scary reality that there is no-one going to provide home cooked meals) and thus have ample experience in the preparation of this particular product.

                  The product comes in a variety of different flavours, but the best are the Beef and the Chicken. They are on offer in essentially every major supermarket or even corner shop, Iceland currently offer five packets for £1 giving you some sort of estimate as to how cheap and useful these noodles actually are to the student population. The packaging is iconic and instantly screams fast, cheap and tasty.

                  The noodles themselves are, on the whole, very edible. They have a strong flavour and excellent texture. There are very few more pleasant experiences than coming in after being caught out in the rain, sticking on the hob and seeing the hot noodle vapours rise from the bowl.

                  People who call them tastless, dull and unimaginative are probably suffering from a lack of imagination themselves. The combination of noodles and various other easy to source ingredients turns a tasty snack into a delicious meal. For example, the beef noodles go excellently with chopped microwaveable frankfurter sausages (the chili ones add extra spice), the chicken noodles are really nice if you add some sweet chili sauce to them, and, of course, if you fill a pitta pocket with noodles, tuna and mayonaise, you have a Batchelor's own recipe for delicious noodle experiences.

                  Comforting food, that is quick to prepare and is satisfying

                  They come in a packet, with the sachet flavoring. Boiling water is added to the noodles, and they are then microwaved, or boiled in the pan on a cooking hob.
                  In terms of price, they cost less than £1, usually about 49p, or multibuy offers, depending on where you shop (Home Bargains tends to have them at a good price, as well as poundland). The noodles are relatively quick to prepare, as well a being simple to make. Its a filling snack, great if you have to be out of the house sharpish, and the hunger noises are calling! Or on the flip side, if youve just gotten home, and need a quick snack, the wait is not long.
                  Although its not one of the most healthy snacks ( compared to, an apple.) its certainly not one of the worst.

                  Per 100g packet, there are 7.9g of fat, and 4g of that are Saturated fats, and 1g of salt. 22.8g of Carboydrate, of which sugars are 0.7g

                  As a snacky quick treat goes, it is a better substitute than a snack from a certain fast food restaurant, and fills the gap just as well, leaving a smaller money hole in your pocket too.
                  The taste is what you would expect from a chicken flavour food. It isnt going to win any michelin stars, but i do think it is a lovely comfort food. Its hot, and is mainly made of carbohydrates, but is tasty.

                  A good use for them is for taking away on selft catrering holidays and camping due to jow simple they are to prepare. The noodles dont have to be the main dish, it can be put with cheese, or toast, or be used as part of a larger meal, it is quite an adaptable meal.

                  I would reccommend these to anyone, try them and buy a few packets and keep them in the cupboard waiting for that time when an ultra healthy snack just wont do!

                  I love the different flavours.

                  Batchelors Super Noodles.

                  I brought three for £1.00 in a bargain basket of a poundland Store, but they are readily available from all if not most of the Supermarkets.

                  They come in a quite appealing packet foiled lined and have the words Super Noodles written on the front of the packet. They come in all different flavours, the ones I brought are Bacon Flavour. They contain no artificial colours or preservatives.

                  Cooking Instructions:

                  Add the Noodles to the i/2 pint of boiling water and bring to the boil.

                  Simmer for four minutes or until the noodles have absorbed the water, stirring occasionally. Ovens vary to how they cook so always check what the manufacturer says about the particular oven you are using.

                  I just stick mine in the mircrowave in a bowl with water and then I add the sachet to them, which contains the flavouring. They only take a few minutes to cook and then once they have cooled considerably they are simply ready to eat.

                  I find these are good to have in your store cupboard, as a stand by, they are good to have as a snack or you can add these to a plate of sasages etc.

                  Each packet contains 100grams, they have a use by date of November 2011.

                  The packet is recyclable.

                  Ingredients: Noodles, Water, Wheat Flour, Palm Oil and contains antioxidants, Citric Acid, Salt, Tomato, Onion Flavourings and also contains lactose, Yeast Extract, contains Barley, Dried Glucose Syrup, Flavouring enhancers, Sugar, Vegtable oil, smoke flavouring and celery, milk powder and wheat flour.

                  My grandchildren love these and as they are quick and easy to make I often keep a ready supply of these in my cupboard.

                  They are just simply noodles with a spicy flavouring on them, and I like to leave a bit of the juice in mine as thats simply how I like them.

                  They have a telephone number on the bottom right hand side of the package, that you can contact in case you have any comments or queries.

                  Thanks for reading and rating my reviews.

                  Not for me

                  It's been a busy weekend and not had time to go shopping so for lunch I was searching through the cupboards for a quick lunch...I came across a packet of Southern Fried Super Noodles. Which I must of brought for a camping trip or for my husband a little while ago as I never eaten them. Still in date I thought why not.

                  **Packaging
                  The packet is quite eye catching blue with Super Noodles in bold white writing. This pack is especially eye catching as on the front is loads of cash on the front. There is an offer on this pack with a chance to win cash on opening. On opening the packet I hadn't won 
                  But I still had the enjoyment of my lunch to look forward to 

                  **Directions for cooking
                  Making up this meal couldn't be easier (I made it in the microwave). I put the Super Noodles into a plastic bowl and added the flavouring sachet. Added half a pint of boiling water and put in the microwave for 5 mins.

                  **My Opinion
                  On cooking the Noodles didn't smell good at all, nothing like Southern Fried chicken!!
                  Once cooking was complete I let them cool a little and started to tuck in. The taste was not particularly nice, sort of processed tomato flavour.
                  The colour was also rather off putting the sauce looked like baked bean juice just sticky.
                  The texture of the noodles was rubbery and slimy.
                  I tried adding salt and Worcestershire Sauce to improve it but it did little to make it edible.
                  I didn't eat the whole pack as they really weren't to my liking.

                  This meal is 97% noodles so a good source of carbs (and if I'm right they are a free food on green days on Slimming World, I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong)

                  **Nutritional Information per half pack

                  Calories - 265kcal
                  Protein - 4.8g
                  Carbs - 34..5g
                  Of which is sugar - 1.1g
                  Fat - 11.9g
                  Of which is saturated - 6.0g
                  Fibre - 0.7g
                  Sodium - 0.60g
                  Salt - 1.50g

                  **Cost
                  Normally on offer in Tesco 4 for £2.00 or 69p individually.

                  **Would I Recommend
                  Well I really didn't enjoy these at all so would find it very hard to recommend these to anyone. But I would try another flavour as others seem to rave about Super Noodles being "Super"

                    Batchelors Supernoodles

                    When you want a quick, tasty, hunger satisfying meal that only takes 4 minutes to cook look no further than Batchelors Supernoodles. They are the ultimate in convenience comfort food, not that very sophisticated but extremely tasty and a perfect way to satisfy my desire for a bit of stodge.

                    The noodles come in a foil sealed pack and are basically in dry noodle form. They are extremely easy to make. You put 300ml of water into a saucepan and then add the dry noodles. Bring the water to the boil and then add the flavour. There are various different flavours that you can get from Batchelors Supernoodles but my favourite are the chicken flavour. They are nice and plain with a chicken flavour, not too strong with some little herbs thrown in. The flavour comes in a little packet in powder form that you sprinkle into the water and within just a few seconds the flavour permeates throughout the water and starts soaking into the noodles. After 4 minutes of simmering the water and the noodles they are done.

                    What I love about these noodles is the curly wurly look to them. When they are in dry form they are round and curly and when they soften out in the water they all twist together and stick together making them yummy and thick in big clumps of loveliness! When they come out of the saucepan they are extremely hot so I always let them cool down for a bit. They tend to have a bit of water left in them still when they first come out of the pan but once you let them sit for a few minutes the noodles will soak up that water. The noodles are very stodgy and heavy but extremely tasty and wonderful for a little snack.

                    You can microwave them as well but as I don't have a microwave I can't comment on how they taste when they come out of one. Each pack is 100g and per 1/2 pack serving there are 262 calories.
