asking for help; caps 

I hate to be a fuckin' burden all the time, but could you spare a buck or two for a shin ramyun?

WHY HAVE I NOT BEEN PAID YET? :smb3_sun:

@somarasu Shin Ramyun is so good! Have Spam or something with it so the spice doesn't give you a stomachache though~

@ljwrites @somarasu It kills me that they make a vegan version in cups but not in packets

asking for help; food 

@pagrus @somarasu well if there's one population who are really into convenience and can't sit down to cook something in a pot it's... vegans? 🤔

asking for help; food 

@ljwrites @somarasu When I first learned what veganism was I was working in a natural foods grocery store. Let's just say that pharmaceutical veganism is a thing

asking for help; food 

@ljwrites @somarasu Point being, vegans come in all persuasions

asking for help; food 

@ljwrites Anyway sorry to derail your request for Shin @somarasu

asking for help; food 

@pagrus oh, just to clarify I was commenting specifically on their having vegan cup shin ramyun and not vegan packet shin ramyun--not that it's weird in any way that vegans would want vegan fast food, but that it seems like such a weird omission to leave out a packet version when it's not like vegans of all people would be averse to boiling water & noodles in a pot.

asking for help; food 

@ljwrites yeah I don't know why they would do one and not the other?

@pagrus seriously, the market is vegans! By definition they do not choose convenience over principle!

@ljwrites I guess it depends on your definition

asking for help; food 

@pagrus yeah ideally there would be both cup and packet versions, but if I as an executive had to choose just one for vegan food I'd totally go for the latter.

asking for help; food 

@ljwrites @pagrus Might be a dumb question but: do you think it might have to do with the materials used in the cup vs packet? I mean I doubt it, but, maybe there's something about the way they're packaged, or where.

asking for help; food 

@somarasu @pagrus that's a possibility--all kinds of strange contingencies go into making these decisions.

asking for help; food 

@somarasu @ljwrites I mean I honestly have no idea, I would love to pick some brains over at Nong Shim sometime

asking for help; food 

@pagrus @ljwrites I know the bowls say on the cardboard packaging that they're "processed in a facility that also process fish, nuts, etc." (</paraphrase>) but I haven't had a package in a while, so i dunno if that's a factor

asking for help; food 

@somarasu @pagrus that's really interesting--if contamination is a factor in vegan certification maybe that helps explain it.

asking for help; food 

@ljwrites @somarasu I don't think we have any kind of vegan certification in the US

asking for help; food 

@pagrus @ljwrites Not that I know of. I'm not a vegan myself but I read labels and ive yet to see a 'vegan certified' label.

asking for help; food 

@ljwrites What kind of kills me is that I think the packets actually produce more waste, which is kind of why I would want to buy them in the first place. There is an outer wrapper, and two internal packets, none of which can be recycled. The cup has a plastic lid-- maybe recyclable? And one packet inside, and the cup itself appears to be compostable minus the poly lining?

asking for help; food 

@ljwrites Just sell me the seasoning in bulk for crying out loud, I will buy 10kg at at a time

asking for help; food 

@pagrus just snorting that pure Shin Ramyun goodness in bulk

asking for help; food 

@ljwrites The vegan one though, right?
