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 Sandy 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.
Sandy S.:  I taste spicy carrot and beef flavors. The texture of the noodles is firm but a touch chewy. The overall taste of the noodles in the broth is good and flavorful with the spicy beef and carrot flavors mixed all together.
“I would describe the spiciness as just right.”

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)?
Sandy S.:  I would add pieces of dried shrimp or beef to the cup so that it is more filling. I would also use the noodles with flavor packet as a stir-fry and add some broccoli and cooked shrimp.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Sandy S.:  I like that it had a good amount of noodles and flavoring. The noodles in this cup differ from others in that they are firmer and not mushy.
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.
Sandy S.:  I put the packet of flavor inside the cup. Then I filled the cup with water up to the line inside. I removed the lid and put in microwave as directed. It was pretty easy to prepare and eat. I like I can take on the go.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Sandy S.:  I would describe the spiciness as just right. I would also describe the heat as medium, in between a little and a lot.

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