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 JoAnna M. from FL 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.
JoAnna M.:  The overall flavor was extremely spicy! The texture of the noodles was just perfect when microwaved at 3 minutes. They were al dente, which is usually not the case with noodle cups I have previously tried. There seems to be Siracha sauce and there looks to be certain vegetables to obtain an Asian flavor, but the spice is overwhelming.
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)?
JoAnna M.:  To improve the mealtime experience of the Shin Cup I would add more vegetables for texture. I would also suggest to reduce the seasoning that produces the spice as I am a huge fan of spicy products, but this was extremely spicy.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
JoAnna M.:  The noodles in the Shim cup were larger, making than other noodle cups making more of an al dente texture after 3 minutes in the microwave. I like the design on the packaging and the texture of the noodle.
“I found my mouth hot, but wanting more.”

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.
JoAnna M.:  The Shin cup was simple to make. I added the packet to the product and microwaved for 3 minutes making it extremely convenient. The aroma in the office was delightful and the lunch was extremely easy to prepare.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
JoAnna M.:  The Shin cup is for the person that loves spicy foods. The flavor is bold and lingers in your mouth well after the bite is gone. I found my mouth hot, but wanting more.

Thank you for your time, JoAnna M.! We love your feedback.
