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 Jen P. from IN 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.
Jen P.:  The soup flavor tasted like a spicy beef broth. The noodles needed more time to set than the recommended 3 minutes because they were not soft at first. The longer they sat, the more flavorful and soft they became. The carrots and onions could be tasted but sank to the bottom.
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)?
Jen P.:  The Shin Cup noodles are great on their own as I sit in my hotel room, but at home they would make a great spicy side dish with beef or chicken.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Jen P.:  The Shin Cup noodles were not as salty. They had a very bold flavor and I was full but not overly so after eating.
“They had a very bold flavor. ”

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.
Jen P.:  I prepared the Shin Cup noodles per the microwave instructions. They were nice and easy to cook but the instructions (like other microwave meals) could have suggested letting them rest for 3-5 minutes after removing from the microwave.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Jen P.:  The Shin Cup noodles are right on par if you like spice but I would not recommend to someone sensitive to spice. They pack a punch.

Thank you for your time, Jen P.! We love your feedback.
