Apparently in the UK instant ramen is called Pot Noodles? That’s what I am inferring from this article from the Telegraph. Anyway, it’s an interesting name.
When you haven’t thought about Pot Noodles for a while, it comes as a shock to remember that many people – and not just students – still count these outlandish plastic assemblages of powder and soggy pasta as a regular meal, rather than something you might consent to eat only in the event of famine. More than 150 million of them are sold in Britain every year – that’s more than two Pot Noodles for every man, woman and child.
EDIT: As everyone has said in the comments, this isn’t really the UK version of ramen. As for my snarky title, well, that’s just how we roll here in the Colonies.
