The Stories Featured On Episode Forty-Ninth of The Totally Buzzed UK Podcast:
A man in India divorced his wife for cooking him instant noodles every day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, judge says
The opening story of the podcast was sourced from Insider.com and centered around an interesting divorce in India. A couple were reported as getting divorced due to the man being sick of his wife cooking him instant noodles every day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Kayleigh and Laura discussed whether they’d get sick of the same food for every meal, how low the divorce rate is in India, and Maggi instant noodles in general.
Kayleigh then remembered how Maggi noodles were once withdrawn from sale in 2015 – which is covered in this article by eater.com.
What’s Hot: Taco Bell unveils drive-thru of the future
The second story in the article came from bronxnews12 and was about a futuristic Taco Bell opening in a Minneapolis Suburb. The Taco Bell in question has four drive-thru lanes, with food being dropped down to the customer using a virtual lift system, along with several other modern features.
Kayleigh revealed why she wasn’t keen on the idea of this modern restaurant before Laura explained why she was excited by the concept due to her love of the cartoon The Jetsons.
Brits left raging at pub sausage roll that costs more than national minimum wage
The final food-related story came from the Daily Mirror’s website and was about a sausage roll being sold for £7.50 in the UK.
This led Laura and Kayleigh to discuss the ridiculous cost of food, before discussing the phenomenon that is Greggs in the UK.
Kayleigh selected a TikTok she believes others would enjoy.
