LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - For a lot of UK fans, that ninth championship is so close, they can almost taste it. People inside Noodles & Company on Nicholasville Road say they're already tasting it.
In celebration of Kentucky's chance at number nine, Noodles & Company is spray painting their dishes with blue food coloring on Monday. They say the big blue noodles and even Rice Krispy treats taste just like regular ones, but there might be just a hint of victory in them. Don't worry though, if that bright blue is a little too much for you, you can still get the traditional dishes.
"They'll have the option. They can get regular Mac & cheese. If they want to, they can turn them blue. We as a state bleed blue. I figured, well, we should be eating blue too on a day like today," said manager, Chad Colony.
Colony says they'll be serving up these big blue noodles until just before game time when they close at 9.
