#1403: Tesco Everyday Value Chicken & Mushroom Flavour Noodles

Here’s one that Joe B. and Sarah B. sent me from Nottingham, UK – thanks! Tesco’s a big grocery store chain in England. One thing I’ve found that is a little difficult are European nutrition facts on instant noodles. It’s odd; they like to do a per 100g showing, then a per serving. The number often seem ridiculously off; a lot of the time it’s a calorie vs joule issue (yep – they use a different measure of energy over there too). Let”s see how this chicken and mushroom flavor cup goes!

Here’s a detail of the side panels (click image to enlarge). Says it is ‘suitable for vegetarians.’ To prepare, Add boiling water to fill line and let sit 2 minutes. Give it a good stir, and then let sit for another 2 minutes. Stir again and enjoy!

No seasoning sachets – simply a cup of uncooked noodles and seasonings.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added chicken and mushrooms. The noodles were floppy; more like an egg noodle. The liquid turned into a sauce (which is standard to British varieties). The flavor was almost nonexistant; extremely bland and begged for salt. Not to my liking. 0.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 5051898316952>.
