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 My R. from OR 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.
My R.:  I followed the directions on the container and added hot water to the inside line. I closed lid for 3 minutes. The noodles and vegetables had a chewy texture to them. The predominant taste was chile. Then I was able to taste beef and a hint of citrus or lime. I allowed the noodles to sit for another 3 or 4 minutes and ate some more. I preferred letting it sit longer and enjoying the softer noodles. It was overall, a spicy noodle sensation.
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)?
My R.:  Sautee some shrimp and a handful of fresh vegetables, toss them in a bowl with the Shin Cup and you have a quick, warm and spicy meal.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
My R.:  I enjoyed the robust flavor of the Shin Cup. Most ramen noodles are a little bland and overly salty, but this one was had a nice balance.
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.
My R.:  I brought water to boiling on the stove and poured the hot water into the cup. I let it sit for the three minutes as recommended. The cup makes it easy to just add hot water, cover back up and go.
“You have a quick, warm and spicy meal.”
— My R.,  OR
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
My R.:  The Shin Cup had a robust spiciness to it that did not burn the mouth, and left a lingering spicy flavor. The balance of spice allowed me to taste other foods as well.

Thank you for your time, My R.! We love your feedback.
