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 Holli T. from TN 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.
Holli T.:  During the cook time I found the aroma was very mouthwatering. As I did the initial taste test, I found the soup to be spicy but not too hot. I did enjoy the flavorful blend which included the taste of beef and red peppers, green onions and mushrooms. The noodles were firm not soggy and I could feel the cayenne pepper as I was chewing as well as taste a hint of ginger. Overall the product was well worth the price. I would definitely purchase it again.
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)?
Holli T.:  Beef and broccoli would enhance the flavor of the Shin Cup. Adding shrimp to it sounds so delicious!
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Holli T.:  I really like the fact it has actual pieces of vegetables in it. It‚Äôs much more flavorful and savory in addition to being in a convenient cup.
“Overall the product was well worth the price. I would definitely purchase it again.”

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.
Holli T.:  I open the lid about halfway, added the seasoning and added water to the line on the cup. I cooked it for 3 minutes and it was ready. I really like the convenience of just putting it in my bag and be able to eat it for lunch at work.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Holli T.:  I would say Shin Cup is spicy but is full of flavor. It‚Äôs not overly spicy and has a nice beef broth. The vegetables only enhanced the spices.

Thank you for your time, Holli T.! We love your feedback.
