“The First Noeldle, The RAF Did Say”

The Noeldle is on sale now at £1.10

Students’ favourite, Pot Noodle, have released a festively flavoured option which they describe as a “festive fusion of turkey and stuffing with all the trimmings”.

Two pence from every pot sold will go straight to the RAF Association’s Wings Appeal in support of the Miles More Minutes project granting troops more communication time with loved ones over the Christmas season.

The festive flavour was carefully crafted and tested in 2009 for workers serving on 27 Squadron, RAF Regiment. The troops considered the brand a home comfort according to Regiment Member, Sergeant Ian Hobbs.

Head of RAF licensing, Stuart Balfour claimed: “The snack is enjoyed by so many of the troops and it’s great to know that every pot sold will help them keep in touch with loved ones at what is a really important time of the year.”

It is expected to hit the supermarket shelves in October after a triumphant experiment with British troops abroad throughout last year’s festive period. Priced at only £1.10, will it be your Christmas dinner alternative?
