Gourmet Spicy Shin Cup

Deliciously spicy and perfectly affordable, the Nongshim Shin Cup is an ideal pick for on-the-go eating. You’ll love the bright, satisfying heat and mix of flavors in this gourmet ramen. It’s a quick-prepare soup that’s just as good at home (with extras like a cracked egg and veggies) as it is on your lunch break (ready in a flash). All you have to do is wait for 3 minutes — stir well + serve. These shin cups are versatile and so simple to make.

We talked to Haley M. from CO about NONGSHIM, and here is what she had to say:

Q: Describe the different flavor notes that you taste in the broth, the texture of the noodles, and overall taste of the noodles in the broth.
Haley M.:  The first thing I noticed was how intense on heat the broth had. As soon as it hit my tongue the heat immediately took over taste. Although I don't have a huge tolerance for spicy food, the texture of the noodles was great. They are thin and very nicely tender. There is lots of difference spices that make up the heat!
Q: How would you choose to enhance your mealtime experience of the Shin Cup (e.g. what would you add to it, or what recipes would you make with it)?
Haley M.:  If I were to make this as a meal I would add some shaved beef to it and make it a little sweeter with brown sugar. I would also serve it with home made wontons or egg rolls
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Haley M.:  The Shin Cup is full of intense flavor that you don't get in other packages of ramen noodles. The noodles are thinner and tend to come out more tender.
Q: Describe how you prepared the Shin Cup, the level of convenience in preparing it, and your thoughts on its ease of preparation on-the-go.
Haley M.:  The Shin Cup is prepares much like your regular ramen noodles. The one difference is the Shin Cup has a base packet that goes in while it cooks, which in my opinion helps it to become more flavorful. I made mine in the microwave for three minutes versus adding hot water and letting it set for 3 minutes.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Haley M.:  The level of heat in these noodles were about a 7/10 on a heat scale. I am a little more of a wimp when it comes to too much heat, but I think I would get through these just for the taste!
