Mama Cup Chicken Flavour Noodles

Good portion of noodles. Amazed that all the water got absorbed – check that fill line! A little bland at the beginning, but a subtle chicken flavour coming through. But salty towards the end. “Textured soy protein”, rather than real chicken. Maybe I’m spoiled by other pot noodles LINK. But they’re really unappetising looking, and… [Read More]

Naked Noodle: The Big One Fiery Chicken Panang Thai Egg Noodles

Given the sheer size of this pot (and the name, “The Big One”, which is a promise it had better well keep), I was disappointed to open the lid and find only a small mound of noodles at the bottom. I had a choice of 3 fill levels depending on how thin I wanted my… [Read More]

ASDA Vegetarian Mac ‘N’ Cheese Leeks

Bought this, reduced, and spontaneously, when I already had far too much in my shopping basket. Never go to ASDA when you’re hungry and you’ve just been paid. This would be a decent main course on its own, but I thought I’d have it as a side dish with my lasagne & salad. In a… [Read More]

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]

I may be the only person in the world who had this with charred broccoli and ranch dressing. It was a winning combo though. I apologise for the particularly bad second picture, which may have been somewhat distorted by the beer or two I’d had beforehand. It tasted better than my photography would suggest. A… [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]

Saw this in my local B&M and had to give it a try. I knew the final product would be a long way off the “serving suggestion” pictured on the lid (they’ve dedicated a whopping 5% of the picture to showing what’s actually in this pot, then slapped a couple of artistically engorged tiger king… [Read More]

Rustlers Southern Fried Chicken Burger

I could have sworn I’d reviewed this already – I’ve reviewed a bunch of Rustlers burgers, and this feels like one I’d have picked quite early on! Alas, I haven’t reviewed it yet – the closest thing from Rustlers being the Rustlers Grilled Chicken Sandwich with Mayo (4/5 – delicious!), and away from Rustlers we have the Feasters… [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]

You know when you see something on a shelf and you… just don’t know what it is? Most people just keep on walking. Not I. I pick up the packet and shove it in the trolley. Ready Steady Cook! So I have no idea what złoty or łagodna means, but the picture looks fairly innocuous… [Read More]
