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 Valencia C. from GA 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.
Valencia C.:  The broth has a beefy taste with a very slight spicy kick. The noodles are al dente with a nice mouth feel. The noodles blend very well with the broth.
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)?
Valencia C.:  I would turn the Nongshim Noodle Soup into a complete meal by adding chunks of rotisserie chicken, green onions, mushrooms and bean sprouts. Since I like my food spicy, I would also add a few dashes of Sriracha hot chili sauce.
“While the taste was good on its own, its also very customizable, so anyone eating it can add their own touches.”

Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Valencia C.:  I liked that the Shin Cup came within its own eating vessel. It makes preparing and eating the soup very convenient. Also, while the taste was good on its own, its also very customizable, so anyone eating it can add their own touches.
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.
Valencia C.:  After adding the soup base to the contents of the cup, I poured hot water from my tea kettle into the Shin Cup and let it steep for 3 minutes. Very easy and convenient meal preparation. This would be great for children as an after school snack. It's so easy, my 7-year-old grandson could do it.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Valencia C.:  I would describe the level of heat and spiciness in the Shin Cup as mild. However, please keep in mind that I generally like my food very spicy with a lot of heat.

Thank you for your time, Valencia C.! We love your feedback.
