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 Shadai M. from CO 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.
Shadai M.:  This cup of noodles was very deliciously spicy. The many different flavors all blended together well to create a very unique, oriental taste. I tasted a distinct taste of carrots, onions, and mushrooms mixed with multiple spicy foods. The noodles were just the right amount of softness, not too soft, not too crunchy. The noodles with the broth went together very well. I have tasted many other noodle cups and I can honestly say this product is in my top three favorite noodle cups. I enjoy spicy food very much and the spiceness in this product definitely satisfies my cravings.
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)?
Shadai M.:  To enhance my experience of the Shin Cup product with meals would be to add some chicken to it. I also think having a type of breaded chicken with the Shin Cup would be very delicious and satisfying. It would also go well with any type of steak or pork chops, either chopped up and added to the noodles and broth or as a side dish.

Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Shadai M.:  The spicyness of the broth was one of my favorite elements of the Shin Cup. It is the highlight of the meal and it blends so well with the other ingredients in the cup. This product is different than other ramen noodle cups I have tried because of the bold and distinct tastes it provides. Other noodles often seem to have a somewhat light taste while this product has very tasteful ingredients.
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.
Shadai M.:  I prepared the Shin Cup per the instructions on the package. I opened the lid halfway and poured in the soup base packet. I poured boiling water to the fill line and waited 3 minutes. It was extremely convenient and easy to prepare, this noodle cup is perfect for those on-the-go and busy people, like me!
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Shadai M.:  This product is definitely for people who love spicy foods. If you like very spicy foods than this noodle cup is perfect for satisfying that craving for spicy meals.

Thank you for your time, Shadai M.! We love your feedback.
