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 Wendy B. 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.
Wendy B.:  The broth has a good, rich taste, and the level of spice in it is good. Finally, something that claims to be spicy and actually is spicy! Good chew to the noodles, not all soft and squishy.
“It has just the right level of spice.”
— Wendy B.,  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)?
Wendy B.:  A slice of cheese put on top after it's cooked would make it even better. An egg dropped in prior to cooking would be good as well.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Wendy B.:  I like the level of spice in this ramen. Most others that claim to be spicy are hardly spicy at all and barely leave a tingle on the tongue. This one, however, has a great spice that lingers on the tongue and lips after it's finished, which is always a great level of spice!
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.
Wendy B.:  I microwaved it to prepare it. It was simple and ready quickly, while still creating a good product with good texture.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Wendy B.:  It has just the right level of spice, enough heat to leave a good tingle even after you've finished eating it.

Thank you for your time, Wendy B.! We love your feedback.
