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 Sophia P. from TN 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.
Sophia P.:  The broth is, of course, very spicy. I like the way the broth tastes outside of the spice, because I can still taste the flavor. The texture of the noodles are soft, but not mushy as some may get when heated up. Overall the taste is flavorful.
“It has an authentic taste - like a restaurant.”

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)?
Sophia P.:  I would add fresh vegetables and pieces of grilled chicken breast.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Sophia P.:  Those noodles didn't get mushy like other Ramon does. It has an authentic taste - like a restaurant.
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.
Sophia P.:  It was easy to prepare and very convenient. I just took the lid off, added the base flavor packet it came with and filled it up with water. Then I put it in the microwave for 3 minutes.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Sophia P.:  If you like spicy foods, then you will definitely like this. It is like a very hot buffalo wing level of spicy! Keep some water or juice on the side and you will be able to enjoy the whole cup.

Thank you for your time, Sophia P.! We love your feedback.
