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 Tanya A from CA 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.
Tanya A:  The broth is spicy and has a taste of mushrooms, chili, green onions and some sort of meat broth flavoring. The noodles are soft and melt in your mouth - not super chewy. The broth with the noodles is a perfect combination, especially for rainy day eating like today!!!
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)?
Tanya A:  I would add shredded cabbage, lime and seasoning salt to enhance the flavor even more.
“The broth with the noodles is a perfect combination.”

Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Tanya A:  I like how easy to make it is for those hurried moments when you're hungry ,but no time to cook! It's a meal in itself as is, but it can be made even more fantastic with a few add-ins.
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.
Tanya A:  I opened the cup by peeling back the top paper half way. I filled the cup with enough water to cover the dry noodles. I added the spice packet and microwaved three minutes. I removed the cup from the microwave, stirred the contents, and replaced the paper cover for another minute. So fast and easy!!!
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Tanya A:  The soup is s spicy as a medium heat salsa at any Mexican restaurant or as if you had added siracha to ramen.

Thank you for your time, Tanya A! We love your feedback.
