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 Melisssa G 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.
Melisssa G:  The spicy flavor was just right. I tasted carrots and onion and an overall vegetable broth, rather than meat flavor which I liked. The texture of the noodles was perfect. Not too soft, yet a little firm. This was my first time having this and I liked it so much I would have 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)?
Melisssa G:  I would add more mushrooms and green onions to make it fresher and more filling. I think you could also added some shredded chicken or left over meat.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Melisssa G:  The spice! Loved the flavors. Nice and peppery. Cleared out my sinuses.
“Nothing bland about it!”

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.
Melisssa G:  I simply turned the kettle on and boiled some water. A minute later I had dinner. This would be great to take to lunch.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Melisssa G:  Nice and hot. You better like spice if you are going to try this. Nothing bland about it!

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