I’ve reviewed the noodles (and protein noodles) from Ross at barenakedfoods on this blog before, but I wanted to give the company another shout out after trying their new, improved products.
I’m sure most of you remember Ross Mendham’s emotional, edge-of-the-seat-stuff appearance on UK TV show Dragons Den last year?
There have been several positive changes to the business and noodles since then (as you’d expect, with Peter Jones’s input and support). The success of the partnership is clear in the new packaging, clearer labelling, great taste, and extras on the website (recipe ideas, fan stories, reviews).
The protein noodles still get the biggest thumbs-up from me. The new, improved version was released just a few weeks ago. They’re low cal and almost zero carb, and can be used in place of noodles or spaghetti. Because they’re made from konjac flour, they’re gluten-free (this doesn’t matter to me but it might to you!) I tend to either stir fry them with veg and strips of meat, or prawns, or make a sauce and pour it over the noodles, but there are some very yummy-looking recipes on the barenakefoods website.
Oh! And if you did watch the Dragons Den episode, you’ll remember the very real, sad reason behind Ross’s tears. Good news: Ross and his wife were joined by baby Oliver Jude earlier this month. Congratulations, guys :)
