The last time I had a pot noodle was more than 15 years ago. So to try a pot noodle after so many years was very intriguing! The story of Mr Lee’s pot noodles starts with a man called Damien Lee. A big lover of pot noodles, he embarked on creating his own style of pot noodle. Damien was diagnosed with cancer, and knew that in order to become well again, he would need to make a change in his lifestyle and his diet. He was determined to keep his body and mind healthy. So by revolutionising the pot noodle, he created something that was full of goodness without all of the rubbish ingredients. When Mr Lee got the all clear, Mr Lees Noodles was born.
On the outside, Mr Lee’s pot noodles look like any other pot noodle. The difference, of course, is that these pot noodles have no nasty ingredients. They are gluten free and contain freeze dried ingredients which makes a difference to the taste and the quality. The 6 different noodle pots are Hong Kong Style Street Beef, Tai Chi Chicken, Shaolin Monk Vegetables, Penang Chicken Curry Laksa, Dragonfire Mushroom and Warrior Fighting Shrimp.
Hong Kong Street Beef Noodles: Flat rice noodles with tender beef, chilli, ginger, star anise and orange peel.
Penang Chicken Curry Laksa Noodles: Fragrant flat rice noodles with tender chicken, coconut cream, chilli and ginger.
Tai Chi Chicken Noodles: Flat rice noodle soup with tender chicken, ginger, green beans and corn.
Warrior Fighting Shrimp Noodles: Hot flat rice noodles with shrimp, paprika, chilli and seaweed.
Shaolin Monk Vegetable Noodles: Vegetarian flat rice noodles with broccoli, red peppers, green beans and cauliflower.
Dragon Fire Mushroom Noodle Soup: Fiery rice noodles with mushroom, paprika, chilli and Chinese five spice.
This is a vast range and out of the 6, you will most definitely find one to suit your tastebuds. The Shaolin Monk vegetable and the Dragon Fire Mushroom are both vegetarian and are full of veggie goodness. I enjoyed the Hong Kong Style Street Beef and the Penang Chicken Curry noodles the most. Some of the flavours are quite hot, so be warned! I really liked how easy they were to make. Just like a pot noodle, you simply add hot water, give it a good stir and enjoy! You could add some gluten free soy sauce to mix in with the noodles to give it that extra oomph if you are at home. The noodle pots are great for people who are constantly on the go. They are quick and easy, making them ideal for students, and perfect for travelling. For 6 pot noodles, the price is £17.94 with free shipping in the UK which really isn’t bad at all. You can choose which flavours you want and can mix it up which is very helpful.
The design and packaging of Mr Lees Noodles is spot on. It is colourful, fun and even the box it arrived in was orange. All ingredients are clearly stated and I also got a little bag and chop sticks with the slogan “man with one chopstick goes hungry” to enjoy my pot noodles with.
I would recommend these pot noodles to pot noodle fans as they are much healthier and are lower in sugar, fats, salts and low in calories. The packaging is also 100% recyclable! Not bad eh? Well done to Mr Lees Noodles. It is a great idea for healthy snacking on the go.
