ABOUT: These noodles are by Maggi which is part of Nestle and they come in a range of different flavours. I am basing this review on the Curry instant noodles and they are the noodles which come in a handy pot, meaning I can eat them for lunch at work. The noodles come in a round plastic pot which has a plastic sleeve on it which is a bright yellow colour. It states on the front that the noddles can be made within a couple of minutes.
PRICE: I paid 89p for a pot of the instant noodles from my local shop.
MAKING THE NOODLES: Pull back the foil lid and open the sachet of flavouring which should be on top of the noodles. Pour this into the pot onto the noodles and once the kettle has boiled pour boiling water into the pot up to the fill line which can clearly be seen on the inside of the pot. Lightly cover the noodles using the foil lid and leave for 3 minutes. After 3 minutes simply stir and enjoy.
TASTE: I was looking forwards to trying these noodles as I have not had noodles for a long time and when tipping the powdered sachet contents into the noodles it smelt like a nice curry flavour which I thought would flavour the noodles quite well. Despite leaving the noodles for 3 minutes there seemed to be a lot of water still in the pot and I thought the noodles would have soaked this up by now.
I gave the noodles a stir and carefully took a forkful of the noodles and put in my mouth. These were obviously quite hot so I did blow them a little to cool them down before eating them. The noodles themself have a nice consistency to them and were neither too hard or too soft, they were just about right.
The taste of the noodles was practically non-existent but I put this down to all the water that was left in the pot after leaving the noodles for the instructed 3 minutes. Because of the amount of boiling water in the pot which was now a light brown dirty colour it made eating these very messy.
After trying to eat all the noodles I tipped the water out down the sink which was at least half a pot of boiling water. I noticed that a lot of the flavour granules were at the bottom of the pot and hadn't dissolved for some reason. I suppose next time I could try using less water but I did make the noodles as instructions on the side of the pot.
OVERALL: Tasteless noodles that I won't be purchasing again!
