Maggi "Extra Delicious" 2 Minute Noodles - Repent!!!!
The old 2 minute noodles had a tangy flavour - a kind of salty, zingy hit. Apparently Maggi have taken it upon themselves to do some sort of focus group study.
You know the kind where the "consultant" guy gets paid $750 per hour to talk, well... bollocks.
"Okaaay. You know what 2 minute noodles need? Let's ask a random selection of bland-palated people and see what they think."
"Okay, now they have chosen the cardboard tasteless ones, we need a name"
"We'll brand them as 'EXTRA DELICIOUS' - they'll love it!"
Extra delicious to who? People with a cold?
Thanks to this treachery, we now have 2 minute noodles with very little flavour and barely-recognisable rehydrated vegetables. Vegetables that are still crunchy when the noodles are cooked!! Mmmm....
But you know what? They are now 14 grams lower in fat!! And "ovenbaked"...
You know what I want? I want those 14 grams of fat re-absorbed into those noodles so I can have the taste back.
What happened to my ridiculously wrong munchy snack that tastes like real (pardon the pun) 2 minute noodles!?!?
