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 Cheryl A. from MS 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.
Cheryl A.:  The broth has an onion and chili flavor with a hint of mushroom. The noodles are just the right soft, but not mushy texture. The combination of the noodles with the broth compliment each other perfectly. The spicy broth makes the noodles taste delightful.
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)?
Cheryl A.:  I think if cheese was added to the cup it would enhance the flavors. I would love to try it with some chicken in it as well.
“Nobody can compare to the heat these noodles bring!”

Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Cheryl A.:  What I liked most about the Shin Cup was that the noodles weren't too mushy and they didn't stick to each other. The difference between these noodles and other ramen noodles is that the Shin Cup noodles are a lot more spicier. I can never find a spicy enough noodle with the other brands. I will definitely be buying more of these.
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.
Cheryl A.:  I took the noodles with me to the grocery store and used the stores hot water from the coffee machine to prepare them. It was very convenient not having to boil any water or use the microwave. It only took three minutes and my meal was done. I shopped for my groceries and ate my meal all at the same time.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Cheryl A.:  If you like spicy food you will love these spicy noodles. Nobody can compare to the heat these noodles bring!

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