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 Maurissa W. from CA 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.
Maurissa W.:  The soup broth was very spicy with a strong garlic taste. The noodles were slightly chewy and tasty.
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)?
Maurissa W.:  I added pieces of dried seaweed to enhance the flavor. I would add a soft boiled egg, as well, if I had one around me.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Maurissa W.:  The spicy flavor was very bold and different from most instant noodle brands. The dried vegetable are also a nice addition to the soup!
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.
Maurissa W.:  It was very convenient to prepare the soup. I added water and microwaved the soup for 3 minutes and added seaweed once it cooled down. I have and will take instant noodles with me as an on the go meal.

Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Maurissa W.:  I would tell them that it is pretty spicy and to eat if they like spicy foods. The heat stays on your tongue for fifteen to twenty minutes after each bite.

Thank you for your time, Maurissa W.! We love your feedback.
