Ko-Lee Bang! Bang! Noodles Chicken Feel Good Flavour

You know how those Beano and Dandy comics grabbed your eye as a kid? Well, the same trick works on adults, so long as food’s involved. Yes, the packaging is a trifle ‘sudden’, and once I saw the claims of “Feel Good” flavour, I had to give it a go. The prep Battle through the… [Read More]

Sainsbury’s Spaghetti Meatballs

This didn’t look very appetising in my local supermarket – a splat of tomato on some rather fake looking meatballs, under a pile of spaghetti that will inevitably disintegrate on heating in the microwave. Still, I fancied something Italian, and I thought I’d review this for the benefit of you, my lovely dear reader. First… [Read More]

Chuckle chuckle, guffaw guffaw, tee hee. We’ve all seen it on the shelf of our local corner market, and we’ve all thought about buying it just to be able to take it home to say “who wants to try some cock”? So, in a review that may finally see Student Munch blacklisted from the web,… [Read More]

Lots of packaging. Fork provided, so no washing up. Strong kick of chili – really quite spicy actually! Moderate lemongrass flavour. Enjoyed that much more than expected.

ASDA Hunters Chicken with Potato Wedges

I was so looking forward to this, when to my great disappointment I realised it does not come with microwave instructions. You have to oven bake it. Damn you, pesky wedges! Fine. I conceded to the packaging and followed the instructions like a schmuck: I removed the wedges and set them next to the chicken-in-plastic… [Read More]

Heat Me, Eat Me: Doner Meat & Chips

The packaging-to-food ratio here is ridiculous – a great huge box that takes up most of your student freezer shelf. Inside the box is a tray, wrapped in plastic. Inside the tray, there are a handful of chips – also wrapped in plastic. It felt like the world’s worst pass-the-parcel game. The chips rest on… [Read More]

Tesco Hearty Food Co: 4 Bean & Cheese Melts

I saw these in the freezer section of my local Tesco and had to give them a try. 25-30 mins in the oven, and these little pale pillows of goodness fluff up into some awesome looking crispy pastries. The problem began when I cut into one. There’s an immense air packet inside each one; the… [Read More]

Nissin Soba Classic Noodles

Probably the best textured noodles you’re going to get in a pot. Whereas something like Pot Noodle is more like a broth and gets very wet, this one’s USP is its dryness – and it does give it a more authentic feel. The end result is quite an appetising looking stir fried brown noodles. The… [Read More]

Hungry Joe’s Chicken Curry with Rice & Naan

I’ve not come across Seriously Hungry Joe’s before. With a name like that, it’s got an expectation to fulfil, and boy does it fill it. For a microwaveable meal, this is a big curry – there’s plenty of curry, plenty of rice, and a naan, which should leave you feeling pretty full. The downside is the… [Read More]

ASDA Meal for 2 Chicken Korma & Tikka Masala

I currently live alone, so don’t often buy into these “Meal for 2” things… but when I found this on sale for £1.65 I had to give it a go. You get a generous portion of chicken korma and chicken tikka masala, as well as a large pilau rice, four onion bhajis and two naan… [Read More]
