Miso Cup Soup – Vegetable Flavour (Day In Supermarket) [By @SpectreUK]


This Miso Cup Soup was produced by the Excellence Food Biochemical Company, in Taiwan, which sounds more like a place from some sort of horror movie, than a food manufacturer. There were two sachets inside the 43g cardboard container, of which had 50 calories, with 0g fat and 2.5g sugar. One sachet was full of a liquid Miso soup base, containing rice, soybean, and salt. The other sachet had finely cut pieces of vegetable, which were celery, carrot, bok choy, endive and cabbage. I replaced the free plastic spoon with a metal one, as I have seen what happens to plastic cutlery in boiling water. I added freshly boiled water to the cup, the vegetable sachet and then the Miso soup base. I stirred briefly and then replaced the plastic lid of the cup and left for a few minutes. On removing the plastic lid there was a lovely Miso soup smell. I stirred the soup a little more and gambled a taste. I was strangely surprised to find that this Miso soup was easily the match for any of the Miso soups I have previously guzzled down in restaurants. I say “surprised” because this was supposed to be a cheap and simple cup soup, manufactured by a scary sounding biochemical company. I would definitely have this healthy and tasty Miso soup again and can’t wait to try the Bonito flavour I have in the Foodstuff’s tasting cupboard.
