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 Lynn H. from IL 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.
Lynn H.:  The flavor of the broth is a spicy chili, cayenne, peppery mix. The noodle quality and taste is wonderful! They are not soggy, just the right amount of firmness to them. The overall taste of the noodles in the broth is very flavorful, not watery, a great taste.
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)?
Lynn H.:  I would add some baby boy choy, mushrooms and broccoli to enhance the meal. If the spicy flavor is too much, an egg and some say sauce would be a great addition to tame it down.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Lynn H.:  I love packaging of the soup and the serving size is perfect. The flavor of the Shin Cup is far more superb compared to other ramen noodles, and the noodles are not as soggy.
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.
Lynn H.:  The ease of preparing the Shin Cup took minutes. Opened the cup, added water and put in the microwave for 3 minutes. These cups would be perfect for days when I don't have a lot of time to make a meal.

Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Lynn H.:  The Shin Cup is pretty spicy. It is a spicy chili, cayenne peppery flavor that hits you immediately. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would say this is a 8.

Thank you for your time, Lynn H.! We love your feedback.
