Instant Miso Soup

A single serving cup of instant miso soup, and is a first generation AFC product.
The product is covered by a sealed paper lid that reads “MISO SOUP Traditional Japanese Soup, followed by a three step instruction. “Natural Miso Soup” is printed largely across the container, with the original AFC logo in the center and an image of a bowl of miso soup in the background. NET WT. 0.64 OZ. (18g) is printed at the bottom. There is a “Fill line” that indicates how much boiled water should be poured in. The left side has two sets of directions; one for boiling water and the other for microwave. The barcode is printed underneath, as well as a description of miso soup. The right side has the nutrition facts, the ingredients and the distributor.
Miso soup is a common Japanese soup that often accompanies a sushi meal. AFC has expanded their products from fresh pre-packaged products to other sushi-related products.
