Batchelor's Pasta and Noodle Pot Shots (NEW)

Noodles and pasta made up in pots are often the staple food for university students and those who can’t cook or won’t cook. They’re not something I ever considered buying, not least because of the high calorie count and fat content some of them have.
Chicken, Sweet & Sour, Tomato & Herb

Since my family seem to like these sort of things I checked out some of the brands in store and came across Bachelor's Pasta and Noodle Pot Shots. These are a new product for Bachelor's and the flavours to be found are: Chicken flavour Pasta Pot Shot, Creamy Cheese Pasta Pot Shot, Tomato & Herb Pasta Pot Shot, Roast Vegetable Pasta Shot, Mild Curry Flavour Noodle Pot Shot and Sweet & Sour Noodle Pot Shot.

Each pot is 46g and makes enough to provide a small, but filling snack. To prepare, simply peel off the lid and fill with hot water to the line inside. Four minutes later it’s ready to eat straight out of the pot so there’s no washing up to bother with.

None of the pot shots have more than 200 calories so they can easily be included in a calorie controlled diet plan without gobbling up a large chunk of your calorie allowance. All of them are suitable for vegetarians apart from the chicken flavour pasta pot.

My family all enjoy eating these which is great for when I’m too busy to make them something and they’re too lazy to prepare a proper meal.

Here’s the lowdown on the nutrition content for each of them.
