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 Donna B. from ID 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.
Donna B.:  The broth was spicy and delicious. Flakes of vegetables added to the texture and flavor. I used boiled water and waited the suggested amount of time, and noodles were perfect. The texture was firm and the noodles taste held up against the robust broth.
“Easy to prepare and quickly done.”

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)?
Donna B.:  I would add some vegetables, perhaps peas. Because I am a vegetarian, I also might add some plant-based faux chicken. This would make this a more hearty meal.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Donna B.:  The flavor and heat of the broth made this stand out. Most cup of noodle meals are a smaller portion and the primary flavor noted is salt.
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.
Donna B.:  While I wouldn't consider this portable, if you are at work or at home and have access to hot water, this would be a perfect lunch. Easy to prepare and quickly done, the heat of the broth is filling and nothing else is needed for a quick meal.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Donna B.:  I would warn them that this is not for heat sensitive pallets. I would compare it to the heat level of a jalapeno.

Thank you for your time, Donna B.! We love your feedback.
