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 Heidi G. from GA 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.
Heidi G.:  The noodles have a rich beefy flavor. You can taste the various vegetables. There is a hint of spice to the broth, but not too overwhelming.
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)?
Heidi G.:  I would add fresh vegetables to the broth. Freshly sauteed carrots, onions and broccoli would add more nutrients to the basic dish. I could also see shin noodles added to a slow cooker with the vegetables.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Heidi G.:  I like the convenience of the noodle cup. It is a bit spicier than some of the other ramen noodles I've had in the past. The noodles have a nice al dente texture.
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.
Heidi G.:  I just followed the basic directions and cooked it in the microwave. I thought it was very affordable, filling and convenient to make.
“I thought it was very affordable, filling and convenient to make.”

Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Heidi G.:  I think it's definitely spicy, but it isn't overwhelming. I like a little spice, but not an extreme amount. I would recommend it to anyone who likes a little kick of spice.

Thank you for your time, Heidi G.! We love your feedback.
