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 Crystal F. 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.
Crystal F.:  The very first thing you notice is the spicy kick the broth has, it reminds me of Tabasco. The tingling sensation you get when you drink the broth makes you want to keep eating it. The noodles are nice and soft. They have just a hit of the broth flavor to them as well.
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)?
Crystal F.:  I would add something to help cut the spice down just a little. It would be a great meal with some grilled chicken to help soak up some of the spice.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Crystal F.:  The amount that you are given is more than others that you can buy. I also like that it has more flavor than the other brands.

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.
Crystal F.:  I microwaved my cup because that is how I would normally have to cook it. Something like this would be great for on the go because you don't have to worry about having a bowl for you to be able to cook it in.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Crystal F.:  You have to really like spiciness to be able to enjoy this! If you do then this would be perfect for you!

Thank you for your time, Crystal F.! We love your feedback.
