Maybe you have taken off your beer jacket, or the foggy mist is missing from your student halls to appreciate them pot noodles...


(Full disclosure I only like the "chicken & mushroom" ones, the rest are pretty minging!)

Re: Good News! Pot Noodles are here!

Oh dear. Better buy the entire stock, I'm not sure there is a market here, they might be gone again soon.
However, enjoy

Re: Good News! Pot Noodles are here!

There are a couple of Asian grocery stores in Zurich which have had the same sort of thing for ages.

It's like...400cals? I appreciated them when cramming for exams, MSG made me marvelously retain stuff.

Re: Good News! Pot Noodles are here!

i grow up with Nissin Cup Noodles, it's the flavor of all-nighters during my A-level exams...

Tom's wife might be able to help you out, she has a whole hello kitty remembrance room full of such goodies.

I think the whole 'removal of artificial colours and flavourings' has adversely affected no end of food items so it might well not be just your tastebuds.

Is that what it is??? I had an Udon Noodle Pot the other day, there were these balsa wood kind of floaty things in it..I think they must have been fish pieces.

MSG is a neurotransmitter that helps ton of kids save cash when studying and helps their memory. It also gets me all swelled up but that's what running and 2l of water fixes, usually.

well they're supposed to be "fish cakes" (Narutomaki, those with the pink spiral), but I doubt there's any fish in those instant ones

by the way I always wanted Pikachu cup noodles when I was a kid but they only have it in japan...

It's a rip off, especially for students. They will take their business elsewhere, a 1fr hard boiled EPFL bufet egg.

I always go to the Yumihana at bhfstr. zurich when I need some asian fix, or to get stuff like mirin, kimchi, big bags of rice...

I seldom snack these days but once in a blue moon I go grab myself a matcha kitkat :embarrass:

By the way I think they have grape-flavoured hi-chew popsicles in summer! thank me later

Re: Good News! Pot Noodles are here!

My kids like pot noodles but refuse to buy them as they contain palm oil.

They have decided themselves that we're not allowed to have any products in the house that contain palm oil.

I saw the matcha kitkat in Lausanne and Geneva. Anything grape flavored is my friend. And lichi, like the lichi gummies, and hi-chews are awesome although so chemical.I eat them once a year. I am not really an ice-cream person, either. Except jasmin ice-cream in SF.

And they are much tastier than Pot Noodles imo lol!

I think the smell of pot noodles cooking is what is most nauseating about them.
Now if someone finds supanoodles out here I would be happy to hear that 🙂

Youre in luck (kinda). It's sold out at the moment but this store usually carries them.
