While Jason was having lunch last week, he finally decided enough was enough and demanded an answer from Pot Noodle.
Jason, from Birmingham, wrote a message to Pot Noodle on Facebook, saying: “I need answers – this can’t carry on’.”
Jason’s need for answers was accompanied by many messages of support from other noodle lovers, as fellow fans were also baffled by the small sachet sizes.
Drum and bass musician Jason, also known as ‘Mista X’, shared the updates with his friends, writing: “They have been conning us all.”
The 31-year-old claims the sachet size to pot ratio is a “scam”, reported The Mirror.

He said: “I’ve definitely exposed a flaw in the Pot Noodle empire. They’re committing a wrong one way or the other because the king size pots are either the same size as the normal ones or there’s not enough sauce to go in the big ones.
“It’s got to be one or the other, it has to be. Because how can the same size sachet be the same for both? Science tells me that’s bull*.”
‘IT’S A FLIPPING SCAM’
Jason said he initially posted his question as a “joke”, but was stunned to see how many people agreed with him and demanded the same answers.
He added: “They’re making so much money, so many flipping millions off selling these things. What you’re selling should be right.
“I’m starting to think the same amount of noodles is in the small and the big sizes. I think it’s a flipping scam just to make people spend more.”
He called the company’s response a “copy and paste answer” and said if the company was receiving similar feedback from a large volume of customers, they should take it on board.

“They kind of need to fix their act up a bit. They need to stop selling Pot Noodles or sell them properly,” he added.
The 31-year-old said he has been eating Pot Noodles ever since he was a kid, but says he doesn’t want to give the company any more money.
Jason’s Facebook post became viral, with many others supporting his quest to find the answers so many have been curious to find.
