    Now for a long time the answer was clearly chicken and mushroom, but I'm having doubts now and could easily be swayed to vote for the Bombay bad boy. I've tried all the others and there is no other competition, and if you ever see the chicken korma give it a wide berth.

    And wouldn't it be nice if you could buy a hard plastic lid for them so you could take them camping without the foil getting pierced?

    These lids you get with cream, yogurt etc, to put on after the foil is removed might do the job if you can find one the correct size.

    I have to admit that pot noodles aren't my thing, but Miso Tasty make really good boxed ones, and they're an awful lot easier to pack safely.
    I add dried seaweed, sliced pickles, mushrooms, sundried tomatoes, olives, and whatever veggies I have lying around when I use one as a quick lunch, but meat eaters say they're really good with either dried or cooked cold meat too.

    Chicken and Mushroom every time, Beef and Tomato with a bit of Bovril and Lee & Perrins is good too. Well, not good, you know. Pot Noodle, Not Foodle.

    Funny, I saw a bottle of Lee & Perrin's the other day and almost impulse bought it, I wish I had now. Having read The Road to Wigan Pier it had kinda put me off the stuff.

    No kids at all in the fridge, I'm afraid.

    Shin cup do a nice spicy noodle soup but it gets a bit old; overseas you'll get a load of garlic paste to put in noodles and it's ace.

    Lidl's are selling Tabasco for 50p just now. Himself came home with four bottles :roll:
    Garlic paste in a tube is sold beside the pasta in the supermarkets :) It's awfully handy, especially at camp :cool:

    I've not seen a tube of Coleman's for ages, I'm always after one for camping. Although this is less of an issue these days as if Laura's coming alone we take half the kitchen with us.

    The beef & tomato need a healthy dollop of ketchup to impart some flavour into it. The BBB is pretty good as is.

    When I was in Korea, the local shops had multiple shelves filled with their pot noodles. After a few days, it became clear that the picture on the lid bore no relation to the contents which were either insipid or ferociously hot. :O

    Bad Boy every time and if you want to take them in your pack then smash f**k out of the contents and put in a ziplock bag for rehydration at a time and place of your choosing. :)

    Now that's the sort of low level cunning to be expected from the pot noodle eater :nod:

    I've been using Frank's red hot original cayenne pepper sauce recently, pretty decent and it goes well if you lash it into fajitas. Their wings sauce is also good on chicken, or for pretending plain white fish is chicken.

    Original Tabasco is too hard for me to control.
    The softer green jalapeno sauce is a dream to cook with.
    Get into the Tabasco website, you can buy gallon jugs of it!
    The aprons with the big logo wash up very nicely.

    They have a fairly stout recipe section.
    I've been making their corn bread and corn meal muffins for years.
    Take them on the trail with a small carton of molasses.
    Beats the hello out of noodles.

    Slightly off topic. Can you get Glico at home? Cubes of curry. Medium is OK ... add some chilli oil.

    Not Glico, but another one similar. They do a biryani and another one, can’t remember what. Another one I like is Chinese curry, comes in a hard paste and is great on chips.
