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 Lindsey 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.
Lindsey S.:  I loved the flavor. You can taste beef in the broth with a hint of onion. I really liked the level of spicy - it wasn't overwhelmingly hot.
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)?
Lindsey S.:  I would love to try it with fresh mushrooms, onion, and peppers. It would be great with some grilled chicken.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Lindsey S.:  I liked the size. I liked that it isn't in Styrofoam so the container can be recycled. It was more substantial and more filling than other types of Ramen.
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.
Lindsey S.:  I made it using the hot water method. It was easy. I boiled the water while I got the rest of my lunch ready so it was very easy and super convenient.

Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Lindsey S.:  I love spicy food so I loved the level of spiciness. It was just right for my taste. If you are sensitive to spicy things, then obviously something labeled spicy isn't for you anyway.

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