Zimbabwean Bianca Polizzi has beaten rivals in the prestigious Pot Noodle competition with her kettle cup entry set to be made into a prototype and sold in the world market.
Bianca, a student at Bath University in the United Kingdom, beat other rivals in the YouCanMakeIt competition in which voting was through re-tweets of favourite entries.
Pot Noodle wrote a letter to the 21-year-old congratulating her for coming up with a top entry that is likely to save time for coffee drinkers.
It reads in part, “We are pleased to tell you that you have won Pot Noodle’s ‘YouCanMakeIt’ competition this year. The press coverage and social media support you raised is a tremendous achievement, and your invention is a worthy winner!
“We’ll need you to fulfil some media commitments later this week, but will be in touch tomorrow with some more details. Congratulations!”
Reacting to the win, Bianca said, “Thanks you guys for having me in yours shows and to everybody else you were so kind to write articles about me and obviously my parents putting a lot of effort … They were tweeting the whole time. Thanks very much to everybody.
“This Friday I am creating a promotional video with Pot Noodle obviously that is exciting news and then in January I will be going to Las Vegas for three day I think from the 6th until the 9th of January to the consumer electrics show to show my prototype of the kettle cup that will be created for the next five weeks. So, it’s all exciting and happening so fast,” she said.
