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 Jackie F. from WI 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.
Jackie F.: The broth had nice notes of chili and mushroom. The noodles are a bit squishy and a little gummy. They spicy flavors of the broth pair nicely with the noodles.
“It has more flavor and depth to it than just heat.”
— Jackie F.,
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)?
Jackie F.: I would personally sautee some broccoli and add it to it. Adding a protein like chicken or meatballs would enhance the meal as well.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Jackie F.: I liked the chili flavors it had. It has a lot more to it, compared to other ramen I've had (mushroom, carrots).
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.
Jackie F.: I added room temperature water and the broth packet. Then microwaves it for 3 minutes. It boiled over a couple of times which I had to clean up. It would be very easy to prepare on the go.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Jackie F.: It has a slight kick to it, but has more flavor and depth to it than just heat.
Thank you for your time, Jackie F.! We love your feedback.
