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 Crystal D. from KS 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.
Crystal D.:  The noodles were surprisingly delightful. Most of these types of noodles I have tried in the past have a cardboard-esque taste, these do not. The broth was tasty as well. It had layers, spicy, salty, savory, and a nice portion of vegetables were also present and tasty.
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)?
Crystal D.:  I think I will try to drain them next time and fry them up with a little oil. Maybe add some hoisen sauce or soy.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Crystal D.:  I love the flavor of the noodles. They don't have the typical cardboard after taste.
“Nice portion of vegetables were also present and tasty.”

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.
Crystal D.:  I prepared it in the microwave. It was an easy no hassle preparation process.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Crystal D.:  You ought to like spice to eat this one. It packs some heat.

Thank you for your time, Crystal D.! We love your feedback.
