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 Joan S. from TX 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.
Joan S.:  I prepared this using the hot water method and found that the texture of the noodles was just right, they weren't too soft as happens with some soups. The broth was very good and spicy enough for me. I do like spicy foods. I couldn't identify many different flavors but could taste a little anchovy, I think it made the soup more interesting. I would have liked a little more dried vegetables.
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)?
Joan S.:  I would add some protein (cooked chicken or cooked shrimp) to the soup. This noodle soup with a green salad would make a tasty meal that is easy/quick to prepare. Good on a night when I'm tired after work.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Joan S.:  Shin Cup had just the right amount of spice. Not too spicy for me. I also really enjoyed the noodles, because they held up to the soup and didn't get soggy.
“It's just spicy enough, not overwhelming - don't be afraid to try it!”

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.
Joan S.:  I prepared the Shin Cup using the hot water method. It was very easy, just add boiling water, wait three minutes then stir and eat. It would be easy and quick to prepare at work too. That's important to me.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Joan S.:  If you like a little "kick" in your soup, this is for you. It's just spicy enough, not overwhelming - don't be afraid to try it!

Thank you for your time, Joan S.! We love your feedback.
