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 Z. from FL 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 Z.:  The flavor of the broth is complete HEAT. I loved the flavor overall, as I love spicy food. The noodles, if allowed enough time in the boiling water, are nice and soft and smooth. The vegetables, however, still have their crunch to them. The broth spices do not over power your palette. You can still taste the vegetables and the noodles while still getting a spicy kick.
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 Z.:  I would add white rice as a side dish to go with my Shin Cup.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Jennifer Z.:  I loved the spiciness of the soup. It wasn't too spicy or overpowering. It was just the right amount of spicy for me! The other spicy ramens I've tried are actually not spicy enough and I have to add hot sauce to them.
“I loved the flavor overall, as I love spicy food.”

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 Z.:  I boiled water on the stove. Once the water boiled I poured it into the cup and covered the cup back up for about 3 minutes. After time was up, I uncovered it and made sure the noodles were soft by stirring it. Once known that the noodles were ready I served the soup in a bowl to eat it.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Jennifer Z.:  It has the perfect amount of heat. Not too much and not too little.

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