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 Emily H from NY 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.
Emily H: I liked the taste of the noodles. The broth made it a little spicy but not too much. The texture was like normal ramen soup.
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)?
Emily H: I would add some additional spices. I really like spicy food and this wasn't quite spicy enough.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Emily H: I liked that it held up and was sturdy even after having hot water in it. I've had some ramen cups that get really skinny once you add water.
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.
Emily H: I took the lid off, added water and microwaved it for 3 minutes. It was very convenient and easy to prepare. It would be easy to make at home or work or anywhere really.
“It would be easy to make at home or work or anywhere really.”
— Emily H,
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Emily H: The soup was little spicy, but if you like REALLY spicy food, you'll want to add some additional spice on your own.
Thank you for your time, Emily H! We love your feedback.
