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.
“It tasted more like something I could buy from a restaurant rather than the grocery store.”

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.

Thank you for your time, Leslie T.! We love your feedback.
