A recent survey uncovered the weird items people in the UK are shoving into suitcases (probably last minute in a state of panic).

To celebrate the research Pot Noodle has created a suitcase design which can hold some of the most unusual items packed by Brits. It’s part of the launch for their new sausage casserole flavour, reminding us that while on holiday we might enjoy a taste from home.

With nearly 1 in 10 people packing snacks, it seems that people from the UK are overly fussy (or patriotic) when it comes to foreign food. I can excuse the 25% of people packing biscuits, they’re not always the same abroad. But, surely salt and pepper tastes the same?

Perhaps it’s not a case of fussiness, but over-thinking. After all, it’s always better to over-pack than under-pack – unless your suitcase explodes.

Some admitted to packing even more bizarre items, including a replica or their pet cat, a mini wooden hedgehog and a pumice stone.

Fortunately, if your baggage is overweight at the airport then you probably won’t be the only one guiltily removing toilet seat covers from your suitcase.

Here’s the list in full…
