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 Britney C. from CA 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.
Britney C.:  The broth had a beefy mushroom taste with subtle vinegar and black pepper hints. The noodles stood up to the broth. No soggy, grainy noodles here! The heat of the hot peppers was balanced, just right.
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)?
Britney C.:  I would add some protein, like beef or pork spareribs, or some fresh vegetables. Some dumplings would go nicely as well.

Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Britney C.:  I liked that it cooked quickly in the microwave. It was inexpensive, but had a filling amount of noodles. It definitely had more flavor than other noodle cups I've tried. I'm excited to try other flavors.
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.
Britney C.:  I used the microwave method. It was super easy and pretty much fool-proof. You could buy a bottled water if you didn't have access to clean tap water.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Britney C.:  I'd say it's similar to Hot Cheetos. It's pretty intense at first, but it goes away quickly. Eventually your mouth gets used to the tingly sensation.

Thank you for your time, Britney C.! We love your feedback.
