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 Jay S. from TX 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.
Jay S.:  The broth tasted great. A little bit spicy, but not too hot. Just the right spice. The texture of the noodles was soft after I let it sit for the 3 minutes.
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)?
Jay S.:  I would add just a bit of soy sauce and my own cooked egg. You can also add meat and spicy sauce to taste. The broth is flavorful on its own, but for someone who likes the saucy taste they might prefer to add soy sauce.
“The taste seems more home cooked or restaurant quality than any other brand I have tried before.”
— Jay S.,  TX
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Jay S.:  I like the price of the Shin Cup, I also like the taste. The taste seems more home cooked or restaurant quality than any other brand I have tried before.
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.
Jay S.:  The level of preparation was extremely easy. You can easily get this done on a quick break or lunch. You can also use this for someone such as a teenager who might need to prepare their own snack.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Jay S.:  I would describe the heat on this item as a 4. The reason being a 4 is because I prefer spice. The label shows as spicy so anyone eating this should prepare for a small bit of heat.

Thank you for your time, Jay S.! We love your feedback.
