    I can't undestand the nutritonal infomtion on the packet. It's 100g in total. The calorie content is apparently 124 for 100g as served, but somehow is 254 per half pack made up? How can this be as I am adding only water to the noodles!

    If it is 254 per half pack how can a pack be free when the calorific conent is so high?

    Any clues?

    i am guessing the weight of the noodles increases and there's usually a little sachet of stuff to add so maybe thats full of calories? So your 50g of noodles becomes 100g when its made up or something? Bit confusing though.

    Yeah I guess the weight increases as they absorb water, but can't understand where the extra calories are coming from. I guess it could be the sachet, but that is a LOT of calories for a little sachet of sauce. Would make it about 350!?

    How can something with 500+ calories be free? I don't understand that!!

    I guess it is the same with any free food really though. If you have a large portion of pasta like i normally do you can probably easily rack up 500 cals but because it is being expended on high energy filling food it is free food.

    I'll have to pick some of those up this week then. I was clearly getting a bit muddled up. Thank you for letting me know

    I know what you mean. It's taking me a while to get my head around the fact that free stuff is unlimited. Obviously, you shouldn't stuff yourself stupid but being allowed to eat enough pasta to feel properly full? Sounds good to me! :D
