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 Kristi S from IL 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.
Kristi S:  The noodles are perfectly cooked al dente when following the cooking instructions. You definitely get a great, spicy taste from the broth when eating the noodles. I get a red pepper taste from the broth which is very spicy and delicious.
“The Shin Cup is perfect as is.”
— Kristi S,  IL
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)?
Kristi S:  I would pair the Shin Cup with a sandwich of some sort to give your mouth a break from the spice. The only thing I might add to the cup itself would be more vegetables or even a fried egg.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Kristi S:  I love that it was actually spicy as described. I often find myself adding hot sauce to other types of ramen, but the Shin Cup is perfect as is.
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.
Kristi S:  I followed the instructions to add room temperature water and microwave for three minutes. It was so easy because I didn't need anything but water and a fork. It is also much more fast than preparing ramen on the stove and uses less dishes.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Kristi S:  I would describe the level of spicy as 6 on a scale of one to ten with ten being unbearably hot. It is definitely for spicy food lovers, but can be eaten by normal people who still possess taste buds.

Thank you for your time, Kristi S! We love your feedback.
