Pot Noodle is a brand of instant noodle snack foods, available in a selection of flavours and varieties. This dehydrated food consists of wide noodles, assorted dried vegetables and flavouring powder. It is prepared by adding boiling water, which after two to three minutes softens the noodles and dissolves the powdered sauce. The product is packaged in a plastic pot, from which the prepared noodles can be eaten. Many pots contain a sachet of sauce, such as soy sauce.

Pot Noodle flavours, as of August 2019, include Original Curry, Sweet & Sour, Beef & Tomato, Chicken & Mushroom, Mac 'n' Cheese, Thai Green Curry and Chow Mein.
