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 Gladies K from IA 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.
Gladies K:  The soft noodles helped neutralize the spicy flavor. The noodles were chewy, but they had a nice pasta like taste. The spice isn't overwhelming. You can also taste the spring onion - it gives it a nice flavor!
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)?
Gladies K:  I would choose to enhance my mealtime experience with the shin cup by including more veggies. It only had quarter half of mushroom. Also I would add more veggies and some meat to make a complete meal!
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Gladies K:  The shin cup had great flavor the spicy didn't take away or hide the taste of noodles and everything else.
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.
Gladies K:  Preparing the shin cup was very convenient I just followed the cup instructions which indicated to add hot water and let it sit for 3 mins.
“The spiciness wasn't overwhelming, but perfect.”
— Gladies K,  IA
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Gladies K:  I would describe the level of heat a 3.5 out of 5. The spiciness wasn't overwhelming, but perfect.

Thank you for your time, Gladies K! We love your feedback.
