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 – ‘Harusame (春雨, はるさめ), literally “spring rain”. Unlike Chinese glass noodles, they are usually made from potato starch. They are commonly used to make salads, or as an ingredient in hot pot dishes. Acecook (エースコック) created the “Noodle Harusame” (ヌードルはるさめ) series to be a low callory dish in the 100 kcal range, but gives you the satisfaction of having eaten a good bowl of noodles! They have a smooth texture and go perfectly well with the champong soup base (ちゃんぽん味). The flavors are based on pork and chicken with scallop extract and soy sauce. The mild soup is spiced up and sprinkled with sesame oil to create a flavor that will never get boring. Of course, no instant noodles would be complete without toppings, so here they are: crunchy cabbage, flavorful sesame seeds, colorful corn and carrots.’
I was pleasantly surprised when I tried the last Acecook harusame – let’s see how this one goes…

Loose bits from the cup.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added sesame seed and shichimi. This was a nice surprise. The glass noodle is alright; it was definitely saved by the broth which was milky and savory, and the absolutely lavish amount of cabbage really made it all just wonderful. Loved this one immensely. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4901071229788.
