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 Tamara M. from NC 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.
Tamara M.:  After three minutes in the microwave, the noodle texture was very satisfying. All of the noodles cooked up well and the soup packet blended well with the water to form a tasty broth. Overall, the soup was very spicy. But I prefer my soup to taste this way, so I found this soup to be very pleasing.
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)?
Tamara M.:  I would add more raw vegetables. I would also consider adding some meat, to enhance the taste of the soup.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Tamara M.:  The soup was easy to prepare. It was also more tasty than other Ramen noodle soups I've tried in the past. I also like that the soup came in its own container cup.

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.
Tamara M.:  I open the package and added the water to the level line as the instructions directed. I put the container in the microwave and set the timer. The soup is ready within the amount of time described on the label.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Tamara M.:  I would describe this as an easy to prepare meal. I would also describe it as a tasty soup alternative.

Thank you for your time, Tamara M.! We love your feedback.
