#555: Batchelor’s Super Noodles Chinese Chow Mein Flavour

Hey! Some more noodles I got from Cindy C. of Middlesex, UK! Thanks again! So this one’s Chinese Chow Mein. It’s also promising the possibility of currency inside the packet!

Another tip! I really dig this a lot.

A mound of powder. I must admit it sure has a funky odor; although it’s somewhat familiar…

I’d quietly climb the stairs to the kitchen so I wouldn’t wake anyone up and sequester myself in there, attempting to find a midnight snack. More than once I would take a can of Campbell’s soup – often Vegetable, and a pack of Top Ramen and make it together, then bring it back downstairs and ingest it. Well, that’s what this stuff reminds me of. Unfortunately, it wasn’t all that great then and it isn’t all that great now, except it reminded me of old times, which in itself was nice, but can’t be part of the score really. So this one is going to rate at 2.75 out of 5.0 stars.

A couple of commercials…


  1. Sorry to say it but the packaging does not look inviting… it looks like a winning lottery ticket.
    Chow mein produced in England? sounds like a joke to me! Tasty noodles come from Asia as everyone knows.
    Even over here in Holland every dutch noodle manufacturer fails to deliver the good taste and quality…
    There are no good noodles from Europe…. Again Asian noodles are the best.

    1. idiot, chow mein was produced in England there is no such thing in china, the food you get from the take-aways have been westernised, there not typical Chinese dishes.

  2. Hans,

    We in UK call the stove a hob. As in cooker hob, or hob for short. Also, we call potato chips (as in Pringles) crisp. And we say biscuits while you guys say cookies….colour vs colour? duh!
