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 Heather D. 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.
Heather D.:  We very much enjoyed the flavor of the Nongshim Noodles! The broth had a rich, savory taste with strong notes of red pepper and the depth of a beef broth. While spicy, the dish was not too spicy to be enjoyed. The noodles were tender with a good bite, and not mushy at all. The pieces of vegetables in the package added a nice freshness and variation of texture. We microwaved the noodles according to package directions and are very pleased. This is a product that we would purchase again.
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)?
Heather D.:  The Shin Cup could be made more enjoyable with more vegetables. I would make it again and add stir-fried vegetables and meat to my meal.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Heather D.:  Our favorite part of the Shin Cup was the depth of its spicy flavor. It has a wonderful peppery taste! We were glad to see that it did not contain MSG!

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.
Heather D.:  The Shin Cup was very easy to prepare. We followed package instructions according to the microwave method. We added the base packet and room temperature water to the inside line and microwaved for 3 minutes. This would be easy for on-the-go use if there was access to hot water or a microwave.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Heather D.:  The Nongshim Noodles were between a medium and hot level of spiciness. Though hot and spicy, the dish was still enjoyable (not too hot).

Thank you for your time, Heather D.! We love your feedback.
