In 1977, Golden Wonder brought the ‘noodles in a cup’ concept to the UK in the form of the Pot Noodle. And it’s been a staple food for students and anyone short of money ever since. Until now that is.
Yes, in 2008, the Pot Noodle has become a luxury food, with Harrods launching the Posh Noodle. This is no ordinary snack – just 100 of these Poulet et Champignon-flavoured snacks will be made, each one sold in a hand-flocked and gold-leafed pot, complete with your very own fork and table linen. And despite the name, it’s said to be suitable for vegetarians.
Obviously that means a higher price tag, with this future collectable selling for £29.95 – but all proceeds will go to charity. We haven’t had a confirmed date of sale as yet.
