Batchelors Super Noodles
Advantages: Great Taste, Quick, Simple And Easy To Make, Can Be Eaten As Part Of A Main Meal Or For Lunch
Disadvantages: Quite High In Saturates
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.
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.
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.
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:
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.
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.
