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 Stephanie H. from NC 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.
Stephanie H.:  The broth is full of spice and full of flavor. I could definitely taste the red chili pepper, green onion, and garlic. The noodles are just the right size in diameter. I like to cut my noodles up, as I think they are too long, length wise. I also add a little more water than recommended. This makes a great soup.
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)?
Stephanie H.:  I like cutting my noodles up so that it fits on a soup spoon. I also like eating it with bread. I enjoy dipping the bread into the spicy broth. I also think it would be delicious to add chicken or beef to the noodle soup.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Stephanie H.:  I like the flavor and spice level over any other ramen I have tried. Most ramen is too salty and a little bland. Shin Cup did not disappoint.
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.
Stephanie H.:  The Shin Cup is very easy to prepare. I chose to prepare it in the microwave. I took the lid off, added water, and cooked for three minutes. When it was finished cooking, I cut the noodles up and added a little more water.
“I like the flavor and spice level over any other ramen I have tried. ”

Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Stephanie H.:  I would definitely let someone know that this is a spicy soup. It isn't too spicy. I think it is perfect. The spice is enough to make my nose run, but not too spicy that you can't enjoy the soup.

Thank you for your time, Stephanie H..! We love your feedback.
