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 Susanna M 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.
Susanna M:  The noodles, while a bit salty, hold the broad flavor notes of the broth and keep the perfect bite and are not too soggy.
“It seems to taste better and have a better texture from other ramen cups.”
— Susanna M,  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)?
Susanna M:  I think adding a protein such as shredded chicken would help it seem like a balanced meal and would keep me full throughout an afternoon.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Susanna M:  It has a more rounded flavor and although the veggies are dried, when they are rehydrated they seem to taste better and have a better texture from other ramen cups.
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.
Susanna M:  I boiled water on the stove and put it in the cup and let it sit until it was ready. It was super simple to use and if I was in a rush, I could have microwaved it, but it tastes better if it's not microwaved.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Susanna M:  I would say it has spiciness that doesn't burn your mouth, but definitely makes it tingle. But, I would also say you could adjust the spice by how much of the flavor packet they want to include.

Thank you for your time, Susanna M! We love your feedback.
