We talked to Kandice V. from TX 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.
Kandice V.:  The bright orangey-red broth is very spicy, with a distinct red chili flavor. It tastes like a beef base with hints mushroom and green onion flavors also in the broth. The noodles are soft and wavy. Overall, the taste is spicy red chili with a hint of veggie. I would say it has it has a spice level of 6-7, on a scale from 1-10.
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)?
Kandice V.:  I would enhance my meal experience with a dash of soy sauce. A nice side salad or bowl of fresh fruit would pair nicely with this soup.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Kandice V.:  What I liked most about this soup was the level spice it has. I have never had a ramen soup that was this spicy. I Ioved the spicy red chili flavor.

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.
Kandice V.:  I prepared the soup by adding room temperature water to the cup and microwaving it. I filled the water up to the line inside the cup. I microwaved it for 3 minutes, added the flavor packet and stirred. It would be a very convenient lunch to take to work. It was perfectly cooked in 3 minutes, very convenient!
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Kandice V.:  I would say this soup is very spicy. A heat level of 6-7 on a scale from 1-10. It has a really nice red chili flavor with a good kick of spice.

Thank you for your time, Kandice V.! We love your feedback.
