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.
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.
“Easy to prepare and quickly done.”

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.
