Man, and I just got done getting rid of mine. I had the 8 soup packs but did not care much for them LOL. If I were to find more in my pantry maybe I should mail them to you :)

Have you tried making your own with miso paste? I get mine at Whole (Paycheck) Foods. It comes in different colors; I like yellow. You can throw in your own tofu and scallions and it's yum!! Might be cheaper if you make it often :)

is it really that easy... just  the paste and the tofu and the scallions?  nothing else???

I could try that... how long will it keep?  how much do you use... Heck I could  drink miso soup twice a day easily...

It really is that easy! A lot of miso soup recipes call for wakame as well (dried seaweed), but I skip that when I make my own. Miso paste lasts quite a while - you can make as much as you want at a time. Here is an easy recipe you can use (I just throw mine together, whatever tastes good):

http://www.yummysf.com/miso-soup-recipe/

This recipe calls for white miso. I use white or yellow. The lighter the color, the more mild the taste. Not sure which miso soup packs you are using - I know the Kikkoman ones are white miso paste, as are the miso soup in most Japanese or sushi restaurants. If it's a darker broth, it's probably red. I wish I could recall the name of the brand I buy, but it's from Whole Foods - they have a couple different brands. You can also use miso paste to make salad dressing! I have never tried it, but I hear it's good, and there are recipes all over the internet for it.

Good luck, and ENJOY!
