Boil the kettle, a quick piece on Pot Noodles!

Pot Noodles are a type of instant noodles that are popular in the United Kingdom. They are sold in a small, portable pot and are designed to be easily prepared by adding hot water and waiting a few minutes for the noodles to cook.

Pot Noodles were created by the company Golden Wonder in the late 1970s. The brand was known for its innovative and convenient snack foods, and Pot Noodles quickly gained popularity due to their convenience and affordability.

They have also been the subject of some controversy due to their high salt and fat content, and have been criticized by some health experts for being nutritionally unbalanced.

Despite this, Pot Noodles have remained a popular and iconic brand in the UK, and the company has continued to expand its range of flavours and varieties over the years.

Being an expat in Canada, I understand the need for British foods for fellow expats, generational Brits and British enthusiasts. The nostalgia and emotion tied to British products can all but eliminate homesickness, a simple sausage roll for lunch can hit the spot like nothing else and comfort foods people grew up with or come to love through parents, grandparents or trips to the UK are brilliant to have so easily accessible locally or delivered to your doorstep anywhere in Canada. Being able to bring authentic British style baked goods to the market is a great feeling and it's fantastic having the entire shop at my disposal when any homesickness might sneak up on me! Nothing a Cornish pasty and a shandy won't fix!
