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 Hitomi P. from CO 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.
Hitomi P.:  The broth tasted really spicy and the flavor in the broth tasted like kimchi. The texture of the noodles were good; not too hard or too soft. The taste of the noodles in the broth could be improved more with some dry 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)?
Hitomi P.:  To enhance my mealtime experience, I would add juicy, fresh kimchi with Shin Cup. Also, I would add cooked vegetables in the Shin cup because the flavor from the vegetables will make the spicy soup taste scrumptious. Furthermore, I would be interested in adding some egg to enhance the flavor of the soup.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Hitomi P.:  Once the water is boiled, I liked that Shin Cup cooks the noodle and mixes the broth seasoning fast. I think Shin Cup is much more flavorful compared to other ramen that I‚Äôve tried before. Shin Cup's spicy flavor is something you can't find in most ramen. I was very impressed by the taste and flavor Shin Cup produced.
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.
Hitomi P.:  First, I took water and boiled it. Then, I poured the hot water into the cup till the line, that is marked in the cup. I waited for 5 minutes and then, I took a bite into the noodle and sipped some soup. I would say that it is moderately convenient to prepare, but be careful of the hot water. This is great for anyone who is on the go and need a quick lunch or snack.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Hitomi P.:  If I was recommending this product to someone else, I would say that children may think the soup is spicy and would be hard to handle. However, the spicy flavor in the soup compliments the noodles a lot. The Shin Cup is a good choice for anyone who like spicy food.

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