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 Nicole W. from NC 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.
Nicole W.:  The pepper spice is the most strong taste note. It hits right away (it's great!) The noodles are firm and chewy. The noodles have a sweet dough taste that is quickly overwhelmed by the spice.
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)?
Nicole W.:  I would add a protein (like shredded chicken) in order to make this a balanced meal.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Nicole W.:  The spices are my favorite thing about the shin cup. Most other ramens are overwhelmed by a salt taste and this cup does not have that issue.
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.
Nicole W.:  I prepared this cup by boiling water on the stove in a tea pot and then adding the bowling water to the cup. It was very easy to prepare it at home and given the microwave directions, it looks easy to prepare that way too.
“The spices are my favorite thing about the shin cup.”

Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Nicole W.:  It is hot and spicy but not overwhelming. If you like spicy, this will be enjoyable, but it's not the top of the spicy scale.

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