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!
“The Shin Cup is full of intense flavor that you don't get in other packages of ramen noodles.”
— Haley M.,  CO
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!

Thank you for your time, Haley M.! We love your feedback.
