Man finds space at bottom of king sized Pot Noodle and compares it to regular sized
| Last updated
A TikToker has unveiled a heartbreaking food revelation and noodle fans are not amused.
We probably should've learnt our lesson already with crisp packets only being half - or even really a third - full.
The sound of air gushing out like a too-easily released fart, rubbing it in right in our faces that we bought a share bag but only got about two-packets' worth of fried goodness - and that's at a push.
But alas, us snackers have seemingly been conned once more - as a TikToker named Darren has seemingly revealed the horrifying difference - or lack of - in a king sized pot of Pot Noodle as opposed to regular size.
Darren - known as 'Yer Boi Dazza' - took to the platform last year to test out a follower's theory that the two pots actually have the same quantity of noodles in them by cutting the pots open.
Darren then squeezes the bottom of the king sized Pot Noodle - and an ominously empty and hollow sound echoes back.
The content creator plunges his knife through the bottom of the pot to investigate further.
And shock horror, the follower is apparently right as Darren cuts away the pot, he discovers a gaping space underneath the noodles.
Darren says: "Oh my god. There is hundreds of space underneath a king size pot noodle."
Apparently a professional noodle analyser, Darren whacks out the scales and claims there's 'only 57g of topping' in the king sized Pot Noodle.
He then shows viewers the wedge of 'noodlelage' from inside the king sized pot and compares it to the wedge of noodles found in a regular pot.
Darren then resolves: "My friends we have finally discovered you get the exact same amount of noodles in a king sized Pot Noodle. That is the same, that is the same two blocks. [...] I feel like the pot noodle police are going to be at my door soon."
As per Pot Noodle's website, the regular pot 'makes up to 305g after preparation with water [which equals] one portion' and the king-sized 'makes up to 385g after preparation with water [which equals] one portion'.
However, TikTokers flocked to the post in shock.
One wrote: "You've just blown this pot noodle case wide open."
"'Hundreds of space' is exactly the kind of measurement needed in a situation like this," another added.
A third said: "So king size gets double seasoning and the same noodles?! Feeling scammed doesn't even come close to how I feel."
LADbible has contacted Pot Noodle for comment.
You could see the pot as half full, or you could take Dazza's apparent discovery as a way to start saving your pennies.
Rather than buying a king-sized Pot Noodle, you could buy a regular, or even treat yourself to two!
With how excited I'm getting over the idea of buying not one but two Pot Noodles, you can tell my Saturday nights must be really wild.
