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 April N from MO 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.
April N:  The broth had a bite from the spice that lingered. I love the firmness of the noodles and even liked them better after the sat in the broth a few minutes. They seemed to absorb more 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)?
April N:  I would add thin, sliced cooked beef to it as it is sitting, after adding the boiling water.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
April N:  It is a little spicier and seemed less salty than other ramen that I have eaten. It would be really nice to eat on cold or rainy days!
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.
April N:  It was very easy to prepare, just heat water and add to cup. One thing that might make it better is to have a lid to snap on after preparing to take it with you.
“I love the firmness of the noodles!”

Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
April N:  It has a very good flavor, but you have to enjoy spicy foods because the heat from the spice lingers.

Thank you for your time, April N! We love your feedback.
