It still tastes horrible but after the third one you don't care?

Surely the Vodka would boil at a lower temperature than water, or just evaporate in the attempt... hmm, I hope your friend wasn't a smoker. :shock:

I've heard of vodka jelly, but vodka pot noodle!

Did he use a cheapo brand or blue label smirnoff?

Biggest problem I have with Pot Noodles is the variation in proportion of the ingredients...
for instance, the Chicken & Mushroom flavour contains sweetcorn. Now I don't really like sweetcorn but can tolerate a small amount. Most pots only contain a small amount, so no problem. But every so often I get one that seems to be nothing but sweetcorn.
Can you get any sadder than sifting bits of corn out of your Pot Noodle ?

Yeah, sifting the peas out of Beef and Tomato Pot Noodles... I like peas fresh from the pod, but in Pot Noodle form they just don't work. Nor does sweetcorn.

Has anyone tried those new 'low salt' Pot Noodles? A friend of mine has, and says they're disgusting.

No, but I have tried the "Posh" Noodles - "Chinese Chicken" is rather nice, the others are a bit too spicy for my taste.

Surely cuting down on the salt would make a Pot Noodle almost 100% cardboard?

I checked the salt content of a regular c&m pot noodle and it was around 0.3g per serving. please correct me if I'm mistaken though.

Seeing as the government recomend no more than 6 g of salt a day, 0.3g isn't a massive dent in that quota.

Bear in mind that a tesco tandoori chicken curry (available with side order of pilau rice) contains if I remember rightly close to 2 g of salt, thats a far bigger dent in your salt RDA.

By the way, I love those tesco curries. My favourite is tandoori chicken. The jalfrezi is ok too but I stank in work the next day. I'm not a fan of massala in general but I may give it a go on sat night when the Mrs is out at a wedding reception.

Was that actually salt or sodium, I notice a lot of packets quote sodium instead of salt as it's only about 2/5 of the mass of sodium chloride.

Sorry, but what is a pot noodle? Is there a processed, high-fat American equivalent I might have seen?
