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 Sarah H. from MN 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.
Sarah H.:  The flavor is very bold. It has a nice Spicy bite. The texture of the noodles is soft and smooth. The taste just like Ramen noodles. The flavor is spicy but taste kind of like a spicy chili. It has a very fresh taste and the noodle do not get soggy and nasty when you take the last bite.
“It has a real good spicy bite.”

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)?
Sarah H.:  I would add some corn and more cabbage. I would eat this as a meal all by itself.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Sarah H.:  I like how spicy it is. It differs a lot from Ramen noodles, because the noodles don't get soggy towards the end of the cup.
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.
Sarah H.:  I opened the top and took it off. Opened and dumped the seasoning packet into the noodles. Filled the cup to the line with room temperature water. Placed cup in the microwave for 3 minutes and then stirred and ate it.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Sarah H.:  The level of heat is high. It is not that spicy until the after taste. Then it has a real good spicy bite.

Thank you for your time, Sarah H.! We love your feedback.
