    My pauper food would have to be these:
    Attachment 98579
    Basics chicken flavour noodles Being a vegan I don't really get that many options for cheap, quick (ridiculously unhealthy) food and these tick all the right boxes. And they're only 10p which works out at 5p a meal, which is great for when I have no money or I need to grab something quick to eat

    My prince food is sweet pointed red peppers
    Attachment 98580
    I hate every other kind of pepper but love these. I'm really not sure how but they are superior in every way to normal pepper
    5p a meal... As in you eat HALF a pack of noodles as a meal?!

    Proper bachelors super noodles, I wouldn't class as "pauper food". They're like six or seven times the price of the cheap variant!

    Pauper Food - Definately this!

    Only 17p, but amazing

    Prince Food -
    Fresh King Prawns, yummy!


    and Innocent Smoothie. At £2.50 a bottle, and I have 2 bottles a week. Which is 104 Bottles a year at £260. Ouch :eek:


    Shopping at Sainsburys probably doesn't help my student budget either...:rolleyes:

    is my favourite cheap thing at the moment. And yes I eat them all in one go, but for 30p for 4 I think I'm entitled to!

    As for prince foods... there's nothing really expensive I eat. I'm happy with the cheap stuff!

    Those chocolate mousses are great actually. My sister says they're bitter and have an odd aftertaste, but I think it's like the aftertaste of like, a cocoa... kinda like when you sneakily dip your finger into powdered drinking chocolate and take a sneaky taste.

    prince: caviar, foie gras, good toro, lobster, chateaubriand, steak medallions (grade A), aged venison etc etc etc

    pauper: any traditional street food served from hawker trolleys: meat skewers made from the market leftovers, soups served in styrofoam cups

    theres a guy that operates a one-selection dessert "eatery" under a stairwell between two buildings back home, no seats available, just flattened cardboard boxes and old newspapers, he sells a bowl for the equivalent of 20p, i go there at least 3 times a week

    Pauper foods: smart price extra mature cheddar cheese, onion ring and bacon crisps, ASDA chocolate mousses (50p for 4!), iced gems multipacks.
    Prince foods: proper tinned tomatoes, alpen bars, fresh fish, slices of deli meat

    Pauper food:
    Go to Sainsburys. Go to the bakery section. Buy yourself a couple of cheese twists. My god, these things are delicious. And at two for £1 they are cheap as well.
    That's not cheap! I think they're 5 for £1 in my local bakery.
