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 Cherith K. from NY 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.
Cherith K.:  The broth is very warm with spices. It leaves my lips and tongue tingly, but not uncomfortable. Noodles are a nice contrast to the broth. They are mild and a nice texture when prepared as recommended.
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)?
Cherith K.:  I would use it for quick lunch at work. It would be delicious with some cheese sprinkled on top. I would also be delicious with a spoonful of sour cream.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Cherith K.:  I liked the convenience of the Shin cup best. It can be prepared any place that you have access to hot water. It would be especially convenient if you're on a long hike.
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.
Cherith K.:  I was at home when I prepared the Shin cup. I heated the water on the stove. I pour the water over the shin cup and let it sit for five minutes as the directions stated.
“I liked the convenience of the Shin cup best.”
— Cherith K.,  NY
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Cherith K.:  I would describe the spiciness as hotter than most convenience foods, but not uncomfortably hot. It will be delicious snack or as a meal.

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