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 Bobbye O. from AR 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.
Bobbye O.:  The broth is strong and flavorful, with a little bit of spicy heat. The noodles came out with the perfect texture and just enough spice soaked in to make them absolutely delicious. This was one of the few soups that made me want to drink the broth once the noodles were eaten.
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)?
Bobbye O.:  I would eat these with some sauteed beef and roast carrots. They are a wonderful accent to a meal and I think they would greatly enhance the beef by adding the broth to the sauteed liquid.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Bobbye O.:  I really liked the convenience of the microwaveable cup, something that helps me on the go. The other ramens I have tried specifically state that the cup cannot go in the microwave and the addition of hot liquid fails to produce consistently perfect noodles.
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.
Bobbye O.:  We prepared it in the microwave in under three minutes and the instructions were so clear and simple my seven-year-old son prepared the noodles without issue.

Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Bobbye O.:  The spice is just enough to give the broth and noodles a pleasant kick, but not so spicy that the spice overpowers the delicious flavor. The perfect balance, but not for the faint of heart, they are definitely spicy.

Thank you for your time, Bobbye O.! We love your feedback.
