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 Sara G. from MN 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.
Sara G.:  I was warned that this was spicy, and it sure is! I tasted a little bit of beef, but mostly peppery spice. The noodles were soft and I could twirl them around my fork. There were a few pieces of carrot, green onion, and a mushroom.
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)?
Sara G.:  I would add some chicken or beef the next time I cook this. I would also add some stir fried veggies. I would add it all together and make a dinner of it.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Sara G.:  It is spicy! I like that! it doesn't have a weird aftertaste that some ramen has.
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.
Sara G.:  I read the directions, took the lid off, added the water, then microwaved for one minute at a time, until the noodles were cooked the way I like them, approx, 3 mins. Then I let it sit in the microwave for a couple of mins to cool.
“It is spicy! I like that!”

Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Sara G.:  I would say that if they didn't like spicy food, they should not try it. It does have a good amount of spice to it, but it doesn't burn your mouth.

Thank you for your time, Sara G.! We love your feedback.
