Ramen-crazed foodies who can’t get enough of Japanese food can now enjoy it in the comfort of their bathrooms.

Online marketplace Village Vanguard is selling bath salts that smell like some of Japan’s most popular comfort dishes to help you relax after a long day.

Ramen, miso, beef bowl and curry are on offer and while they might seem an odd alternative to lavender or rose, according to these Tweets, there may actually be a market for it.
