What do you think, would you try this trend?
There's not much that is left to the imagination on the Internet. Honestly, you can find just about anything that you look for. So, during the global lockdown, everyone discovered the existence of Asia and the plethora of music and acting it has to offer, and along with that, Asian food apart from what was a staple became popular, like ramen, for example.
To be fair, anything labeled Ramen or Korean, and I'm sold, but when it comes to certain things, I'm not sure I would enjoy it or even want to try it out, and ramen bath is definitely one of them.
Well, according to Time, a spa in Japan has taken that sentiment to heart by offering ramen noodle baths to its clients. The Yunessan Spa House in Hakone apparently lets their guests chill in a bowl of ramen pork broth and synthetic noodles hoping that it will improve their skin. Sure, the salt and five spices must be working magic on their skins.
"Lately people are very concerned about having beautiful skin, and they know the effect of collagen, which is contained in our pork-based broth," Spa Owner Ichiro Furuya, says in a video. "At this bath, everybody can have fun and take advantage of the healthy elements of ramen noodles."
It may have started in Japan, but it's made its way into several homes where people take to social media platforms to post pictures of their baths filled with ramen noodles and some even put the seasoning in the tub. I can't help but wonder, will the ramen be cooked if the water's warm?
Also, would people eat them from the same tub that their coochie is in? I mean, won't they be naked in the tub? Even if they're not, imagine, all the dirt from your feet mixed with the water that you're sitting in, while adding more ramen.
I'm honestly trying to understand the thought behind this, without wondering about all the food that's probably going to waste. Thankfully, most people couldn't see how this made sense, and they took to Facebook to share their opinion, too. Harold Miller shared: Imagine cleaning the drain after this. Imagine the smell on you afterward. Imagine noodles in "places."
Imagine eating noodles your body is soaking in. Just no. Charlene Prinsloo stated some hard facts when she wrote: What a waste, so many hungry people in the world that would give anything for a pack of noodles. Denise Beaman added: Eeew stewing in your filth and eating. No. Question is, would you try this for yourself? Or is this a hard pass for you?
