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 Jennifer H. from WA 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.
Jennifer H.:  Very smooth texture, very similar to cup of noodles; I really liked the spice of the broth.
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)?
Jennifer H.:  If I were to change something about it, it would be to have more veggies in it. Maybe even corn, more carrots, or even celery.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Jennifer H.:  The spice and flavor of the cup is really really good. I kept wanting more because of the after taste and kick it left. The noodles seem similar to those of cup of noodles, it's the broth that's the biggest factor and difference.
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.
Jennifer H.:  The level of convenience was super easy. I have instant hot water, filled it up and let it sit out for 3 minutes. Wasn't quite done- I felt the noodles were still a little hard- so I stirred it and let it sit for about 30 seconds and it was perfect. As long as a microwave is around, this is a very easy on the go lunch.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Jennifer H.:  I would say it was good spice and flavor. It's not just hot to burn your mouth, but good flavor to what you're eating. It leaves you constantly wanting more because of the after taste- in a good way.
