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 Leslie T. from GA 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.
Leslie T.:  The noodles were very similar to the texture of home cooked noodles that you buy in the box! The flavor was spicy! I only used a portion of the flavor packet and that gave it a huge kick. It tastes less fake than the ramen noodle you buy in bulk.
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)?
Leslie T.:  I could enhance my meal time experience by adding fresh veggies to the noodles and broth.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Leslie T.:  What I liked most about the shin cup was the spice level and the more Asian type flavor profile. It tasted more like something I could buy from a restaurant rather than the grocery store.
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.
Leslie T.:  It was very simple to prepare. I can imagine taking it in the go would be just as quick and fast. I simply added hot water to the cup and let it sit. It was delicious!
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Leslie T.:  I would say that it is a bit hotter than some hot wings but that you can adjust the level of spice by just playing with the packet.
