my sis said the curry ones wer enice. now my sis is a darn good prof chef, but has a weakness for bland mass produced food it times.

i duly bought a packet, for a snack type lunch, and did what it said inthe packet.

yuck, i had a totally rigid yet jelly like clump of jellified worms. totally rank!!!

nappyzoneisback Thu 27-Aug-09 16:59:53

If you boil - keep stirring!

lepirate Thu 27-Aug-09 19:16:46

i did micro mine, it says on pack for 5 mins. do others cook for less time?

How can you not manage super noodles?! shock

bring water to the boil.
add sachet.
add noodles.
simmer for 4 minutes.
your noodles are super grin

I looooove super noofdles blush

at thsi time of year DH disappears a few times for the evenings for a few weeks and I am likely to indulge once or twice once the boys have been fed with real food

I always cook for less time- quite low heat 3 minutes or so to avoid slimation (my new word of the day)

Oh, I love super noodles too.

I don't know how long to cook them, but DD microwaves them to perfection. Mmmmmm.

Boiling water, break noodles into a bowl and add sachet. Pour water and microwave for 6 minutes. Eat in between two slices of white bread and butter. Heaven! Mmmmmmm

nappyzoneisback Thu 27-Aug-09 20:58:41

eyeballs - thats a gruesome image!!

Are super noodles really that bad for dc anyway (Please dont make me get the hard hat out)

I give them to my dd but i dont put the flavouring in, i then add chicken, sweetcorn and cherry tomatoes - Quick and easy tea. Is this wrong?

lyraSilvertongue Thu 27-Aug-09 21:45:56

Mummytopebs, they're hugely calorific, which I assume is from fat. Poss saturated fat. My DC do have them occasionally though.
OP, you will get hard/mushy bits if you don't stir.

lyraSilvertongue Thu 27-Aug-09 21:47:40

500+ calories per pack, 12g of saturated fat. Yikes!

lyraSilvertongue Thu 27-Aug-09 21:49:24

Nearly 24g of fat overall in one packet shock. Ingredients include palm oil (trans fats), MSG and other nasties. DSs won't be having them again.

EyeballsintheSky Thu 27-Aug-09 21:50:53

No, don't tell me that. I thought they were only pasta type things; never read the packet

lyraSilvertongue Thu 27-Aug-09 21:54:37

I used to enjoy them too. Won't be able to now.

milknosugarplease Thu 27-Aug-09 22:20:05

stubbyfingers i know its quite shameful! blush
