Chinese Takeaway Is Offering A Wham Bar Chow Mein For £4.50

A takeaway in Derry has baffled customers and observers alike by offering a special item on its menu - a noodle dish featuring bits of Wham Bar.

Yes, that Wham Bar. The sticky and sickly sweet treat of your childhood, accompanied by a load of chow mein noodles.

It's bizarre, but could it really work?

This culinary oddity is being offered by The Rice Bowl in Derry and is apparently 'back by popular demand', which implies that they've sold this before and people actually liked it.

It's certainly attracted quite a bit of attention. On Facebook, a post advertising the return of this unusual dish has received 5,800 comments, largely from people who are both confused and intrigued by the idea of the 'Whamy Bammy Chow Mein' .

The Rice Bowl also appears to sell a lot more than just food, as the 'mini mart' section of its website reveals it also deals in - among other things - pregnancy tests, condoms and kitchen roll.

The owners have got their fingers in a lot of pies, basically.

As for the Wham Bar dish, one person commented: "Tasty enough but the wham bar was overcooked, bit chewy."

Another said: "Seriously just what the f*** is the score here! This should be illegal to treat wham bars like this!!!"

A third wrote: "Not being funny but, you'd have to be off your nut to demand this."

Either way, if this is a joke, it's now out of hand, as the takeaway appears - judging from the receipts shared under the original Facebook post - to have sold a couple of these.

It's not the first time The Rice Bowl has achieved this sort of notoriety, either.

Earlier this year it went viral for a post shared about customers who fail to open their door when the delivery arrives.

That rant went: "When you order delivery from Chinese, suddenly hear a knock on door! Please open the door.

"Do not shout to each other from behind the door or shout upstairs at other people before opening your door!"

It continues: "Who the f*** do you think it is? Did you forget you ordered a Chinese?

"Did you not get a notification from Ricebowl App that read: 'Your order is on the way.'

"It's hardly the TV licence man or NIE looking for magnets at this time of night.

"If you don't answer your door then I am going to stop knocking on your door and I am going to f****** knock it in."

Hey, if you're not waiting on the doorstep to get your hands on a Wham Bar noodle dish, then you're not really living.
