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 V. from TX 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 V.:  The noodles seem to be firmer than the average ramen noodle. There by giving the soup a more structured texture. The broth is full of flavor and has quite a bite, but the spiciness isn't quite realized until a few seconds after swallowed.
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 V.:  The shin noodle soup is as close to perfection, in a cup of soup, as I have so far encountered. I do like to add chopped up fresh avocado to the cooked noodles, mellow's it out just a bit and enhances the already delicious flavor.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Jennifer V.:  Shin Cup by far is better than any other Ramen, I have tasted. The noodles are firmer and the broth has more flavor. The overall product tastes like it has been put together much better then the others on the market.

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 V.:  Using a microwave safe cup, I put about a cup and a half of water in microwave for 3 minutes on high. The water will be boiling at this point, carefully take it out and pour the amount needed in soup, then close the lid and let it sit for a few minutes, then enjoy!
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Jennifer V.:  This soup is not to be taken lightly. The delicious combination spices give it about a 7 on a scale of 1 to 10 spiciness. It's a fantastic mix.

Thank you for your time, Jennifer V.! We love your feedback.
