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 Courtney D. from VA 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.
Courtney D.:  The main flavor that stood out to me was a very strong spicy taste. The taste was like a hot chili and was very tasty. It was tasty too, because I enjoy eating spicy foods.
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)?
Courtney D.:  To enhance the soup, I would add shredded chicken and cabbage to make a great meal. I would also cook it with shredded steak and green peppers and onions!!!!
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Courtney D.:  I most liked that it was very spicy, but the flavoring was great! I also like that the water doesn't over power the soup, meaning it doesn't taste watered down like other soups in a cup.
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.
Courtney D.:  I opened the cup of noodles, as the directions stated. Then I poured the spice package into the cup, afterwards added water to the line of the cup and placed the cup in the microwave for three minutes!!! I normally add pepper to my ramen for an extra kick, these didn't needed any extra seasoning at all.

Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Courtney D.:  On a level of one to ten the spiciness is an 8. But it's very tasty with a lot of seasoning.

Thank you for your time, Courtney D. We love your feedback.
