While on a class walking excursion to No frills, we found a little time to wonder around after our assignment was done.  I walked by the broth boxes and found a small box of instant miso soup, as always I was skeptical but here’s how it turned out! 
So after spotting the package of instant  miso soup, I walked by without giving it much further thought. But eventually I turned back and took a closer look at the packaging because I DID like miso soup, and it came to a time where I spent more time  on the laptop doing culminating project. In summary, I needed food that was quick to make, which also includes soup lol.

Interesting……□ Look our for a review later this week!

The instructions at the back just said to place the contents of one packet into a bowl, then add one cup of hot water and stir. Super simple. The package of miso soup, when opened contained 3 packets of the soup mix. The soup smelled and looked exactly like miso soup from a restaurant, but the taste wasn’t 100% like the restaurants, which is to be expected.
It wasn’t  too salty in my opinion but everyone’s preference taste-wise is different, there were bits of tofu, seaweed and green onions scattered in the soup. The tofu was soft, but I felt as if there was a weird after taste. The seaweed and green onions however, tasted perfectly normal. All in all, I would buy this again because it’s convenient and more affordable than eating out at a restaurant.
