There’s a rumor going around that there is wax in instant noodles. The claim is that wax is used to keep noodles seperated. This is utter nonsense; wax would melt in boiling water!

Here’s yet another one I got from the 7-Eleven next to our hotel from last May’s Bangkok trip. Like some others, this one got banged up pretty good, but still made it through in good enough condition to review. What’s a trip about this one is that it’s showcasing Manchester United. I’ve seen a few products with Manchester United footballers on them. Let’s check it out!
