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 Ashley H. from NE 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.
Ashley H.:  Shin cup noodles hold up surprisingly well, they didn't get overly soft, nor did they turn out hard and crunchy. The flavor of the broth can be described in one word, zingy, from the red chili pepper. The cup also has flavors of onion, mushroom, beef and garlic.
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)?
Ashley H.:  I would add a perfectly fried egg and a drizzle of hot sauce to my Shin cup.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Ashley H.:  I enjoyed the broth of the Shin cup the most, it is full bodied with just right amount of heat. Other ramen cups are bland compared to the flavor the Shin cup ramen and the noodles aren't as hearty.
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.
Ashley H.:  I prepared my Shin cup by following the microwave instructions exactly. I took the lid completely off, added the soup base, poured in room temperature water to the fill line and then microwaved for three minutes. The soup could not have been easier to make and would be ideal for a dorm room or an office for a quick and tasty meal.

Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Ashley H.:  If I were to describe the level of spiciness I would say that the Shin cup is a solid seven on a one to ten scale. I would also warn that the spice builds as you eat this ramen and it is quite warming.

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