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 Chelsie H. from MI 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.
Chelsie H.:  This soup was delicious and definitely more on the spicy side. The texture of the noodles were perfect, they were very comparable to ramen noodles. They were not too hard and not too soft, just right. I personally think that it tasted like chili. I could taste the little bits of green onions and mushrooms. I will definitely be buying more of these after today!
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)?
Chelsie H.:  This meal was very simple and fast to heat up and I absolutely loved it! I think that the spices were perfect and I would not add nor take away from them. The spices were not too hot nor too mild; they were right in the middle. I think I would add a few regular onions to it because I love onions. Other than that, I dont feel changes are necessary.
“ I absolutely loved it!”
— Chelsie H.,  MI
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Chelsie H.:  It was different than ramen because of the spices that were used in it. It also had mushrooms and big green onion chunks in it. My favorite thing about Shin Cup was the the zip of spiciness with every single bite.
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.
Chelsie H.:  I used the microwave to heat up my Shin Cup. I followed the instructions right off the cup and those instructions were very easy to follow. It only took me 3 minutes to cook which I absolutely loved. All I had to do was add hot water before microwaving it.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Chelsie H.:  I would tell them that it wasn't hot and that it was more of a mild zip to the tongue. The spiciness doesn't overwhelm your mouth with a burning sensation. It is a very tolerable and tasty spice.

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