Instant Miso Soup with Tofu

Description
AFC first generation single serving cup of instant miso soup.
The yellow container is covered by a sealed paper lid that reads “MISO SOUP Traditional Japanese Soup, with a three step instruction printed below. “Natural Tofu Miso Soup” is printed across the container, with the original AFC logo in the center and a graphic of a bowl of miso soup in the background. Underneath reads NET WT. 0.76 OZ. (22g). The “Fill line” printed on the upper right part of the container indicates how much water should be poured in. The left side lists directions for hot water and directions for microwave use, as well as a barcode and a general miso soup description. The right side lists 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, and has included two types of instant miso soups.
