There are occasions, when it pays to shop in person and read the ingredients and this was one of those occasions.
Currently (21/03/22) Holland & Barrett has Eat Water Slim Noodles Pad Thai 250g on special offer, reduced by 50% from 4.99 to 2.49. The packs are ready meals and as konjac is usually carb free, we thought we would try them.
First problem, was a carb count over 26g per 250g portion. Second problem, was that the ready meals are designed to be cooked in a microwave, only. We improvised but the third problem, is that the portion size is so small, that it wouldn’t feed a small child or make a starter. Fourthly, the smell , appearance and taste of this Pad Thai just isn’t appetising.
It’s a NO from us !
