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 Caroline N. from VA 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.
Caroline N.:  I taste a nice umami spicy flavor in the broth with salty kimchi flavor. The texture of the noodles are chewy. The noodles and broth together are a good blend of chewy, rich and savory.
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)?
Caroline N.:  I would add vegetables to it and slices of meat to make that noodles a complete meal.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Caroline N.:  It's easy and fast for a quick meal. It's spicier than other ramen I've tried.
“It's easy and fast for a quick meal.”

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.
Caroline N.:  I poured room temperature water into it and put in the microwave for 3 minutes. I then put the dry soup base in and then stirred up the noodles. It was very easy and fast.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Caroline N.:  It's pretty spicy - spicier than Sriracha sauce. It's not for bland palettes.

Thank you for your time, Caroline N.! We love your feedback.
