Here’s one that came in a Zenpop.jp box – use coupon code THERAMENRATER for a groovy discount!

Here’s what they had to say about this one – ‘Here’s something new: delicious Harusame noodles (はるさめ, 春雨). Harusame is the Japanese name for cellophane noodles or glass
noodles. The Japanese kanji for Harusame are 春雨, which means spring  ) and rain (雨). Such a poetic name for noodles, isn’t it? They are not made like your usual ramen or soba, but made of both sweet potato and potato starch in Nara prefecture, and they are usually thicker than the Chinese counterparts. Harusame has a smooth and chewy texture and goes very well with the
soup from this cup. It’s a well-balanced Chinese-style soup, with the umami of chicken bones and the flavor of potherbs blended together with a hint of soy sauce. The dish is finished with wontons (ワンタン), eggs, green onions, and sesame seeds.’

At 78 calories, I’m not guessing this is a lot of noodles and maybe a 5 second mukbang if I were to do one. Let’s give it a go.
