Doll instant noodles

Imported from China, Doll instant noodles came in a variety of flavours-such as chicken, prawn and mushroom.

Cantonese people have a long history of cooking noodles, and the modern type of instant noodles were publicly introduced as "Doll Noodles" in the late 1960s by Winner Food Products Ltd.

Since then "Doll Noodles" has since become a blanket name for instant noodles irrespective of brand - bothing in Hong Kong, Southern China and many other parts of the world.

    I'm still moarning Doll noddles too! Koka, indeed, are very good. Ko Lee are also VERY good, although they have changed the chicken flavour recently (it used to be similar to the Doll version, I would recommend them but opt for a flavour other than chicken.

    Many a packet of Doll noodles was consumed when I was a young child in the 80's ,I had them regularly for dinner and my favourite flavour was mushroom (bottle green coloured packet). When I left home, one of the places I lived in was a bedsit where the kitchen was a biohazard- a toilet had less germs and was more hygienic in comparison! During that time, I lived on shop bought sandwiches, chip shop chips, occasional meals from the then outlaws and...Doll noodles! They came into their own and proved how instant they were-just add boiling water from a kettle and et voila, a meal in minutes! Given how many packets I've eaten over the years, I've never grown sick of them. Nowadays, I see them as comfort food and while Doll noodles are no more, Koka ones are similiar : much to my delight :-)
