Reduced Salt Pot Noodle - review

Reduced salt chicken and mushroom pot noodle
Sorry for not posting the last couple of days, picked up a really nasty bug, throat has been feeling like I swallowed a bag of broken glass... :(

Having to eat slimy food as a result, and having exhausted all other options I reluctantly peeled back the lid on this "33% less salt" Chicken and Mushroom Pot Noodle (a slightly worse version of that "food" one normally reserves for camping emergencies)...

I might as well have prepared myself a lovely bowl of shredded cardboard in warm water.

Almost a teaspoon of added salt later it sort of half tasted like the normal one...but going through that process has demonstrated precisely how much salt really is in these blooming things (for perspective I wouldn't use that much salt in the production of a roast dinner for four)...so sort of lose/lose for Unilever really, as I'm not sure I'm going to be able to bring myself to eat either kind ever again now...

Some of those instant meals are so gross! Best is to avoid the pot noodles in future, LOL!
Fink, I hope you sent that bug packing and I hope you'll soon be bright-eyed and bushy tailed again, :-))

Hope you get better soon!

In the meantime, for that throat: half a teaspoon of ginger powder, half a teaspoon of tumeric, mixed into a paste with a teaspoon of honey. Swallow it!
