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 Bobbie P. from OK 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.
Bobbie P.:  The broth has a strong beef base flavor, along with the heat that tastes like chili powder. I can also taste the flavores coming from the carrots and mushrooms. The texture of the noodles are very palatable, they are soft and not too thick. The overall taste of the noodles in the broth, was actually surprising, while it is most definitely spicy, it is not overbearing.
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)?
Bobbie P.:  I can see myself adding some grated cheese to the Shin Cup or possibly a scrambled egg. I can imagine using the Shin Cup, along with canned chicken and cheese to make a casserole.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Bobbie P.:  I liked the fact that it was quick to fix and mess free, unlike my experience with other ramen noodles. I also like that the Shin Cup noodles are not thick and pasty, and while it's a soup, it's not watered down.
“Very easy, clean prep, and it would be great to keep at work.”
— Bobbie P.,  OK
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.
Bobbie P.:  I prepared the Shin Cup in the microwave, a total prep time of 3.5 minutes. Very easy, clean prep and would be great to keep at work.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Bobbie P.:  Shin Cup is definitely spicy, but not so much that it will discourage one from eating it. The amount of spice grows on you.

Thank you for your time, Bobbie P.! We love your feedback.
