THE INCONSUMABLES

Maggi Dal Atta Noodles - Sambar flavourLast night, I delivered the worst insult to my taste buds. It was called Maggi Dal Atta Noodles. And for the simple reason that I was hungry and had nothing else to eat, I persisted till the last noodle. I felt I was recycling my own excrement.

Very recently, I felt this way about Pepsi Cafechino - an inexcusably ridiculous concoction of coffee and piss.. I mean.. fizz. Inexcusable because Pepsi expects you to pay good money to drink a potion that has the potential to make the toughest criminals talk if forced down their throat.

I wonder: Nestle and Pepsi are such big companies with (I'm sure) highly developed research labs. Let alone flavours that may not become immensely popular, but saambaar noodles and cafechino are unfit for human consumption!

Have also felt this way when I watched some really bad movies. I used to wonder: Don't these guys watch their own movies after they've made them?

I wonder that often too.. about bad movies... I also wonder about Mumtaz... Does she ever sit down and watch and see her fat jiggling? Does she not get embarrassed? Why she keeps doing it again? Samethign for Kiran.. enna karmam..

But anyways.. sambar noodles? that is just nasty!!! Sambar is disgusting on its own... ithukku noodles veraiya? *puke*

Dal Atta, sounds so yucky....Dal chawal yes heard n Dal roti yes heard in separate form but this mix is killing by the very looks...Poor your tongue!

Talking of movies reminds me of a dud called Mere Jeevan Saathi that hit the screens this year. I am sure I wud have gulped down Pepsi or Maggi Atta Noodles with the highest enthusiasm, if I cud have been spared the splitting migraine attack that had me hitting the bed for hours after. Grrr... :)

Thx for the visit, Vin. U got a great looking blog here. :) Shall come back for more.

@Merino i.c: Understand your feelings about Juggly Mumtaz and dal atta noodles, but "Sambar is disgusting on its own" is unacceptable....tats like a personal insult to my entire value system :P....

coke came out with a similar stuff, only, even the guys who made it, didn't like it and the idea was dropped

Vinesh said...

@kausikram krishnasayee: they had better sense then...:-)

I was never a fan of cola drinks...So didn't even try Cafechino...

But I may try Atta Noodles...Atta is more healthier than Maida

Syam said...

andha kandraaviya kudikarathuku goli soda or color better :-)

Vinesh said...

@ganesh ranganathan: Atta Noodles Vegetable is really tasty. It is the new Sambar flavour which is "sagikkala" variety..

Vinesh said...

@syam: sariya sonneenga syam :-)
