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 Kate M. from NY 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.
Kate M.:  I tasted a hint of chicken and vegetables in the broth. The spicy broth was not over powering and added a great characteristic to the soup. The noodles were firm and delicious. I only let the soup cook in the water for about 2:30 minutes. The noodles and the broth complimented each other very well.
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)?
Kate M.:  I would like to add a few shrimp or maybe some fresh vegetables to it.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Kate M.:  I liked the spiciness of the broth the most. All of the other ramen products I've tried did not have the amount of heat or the flavors that this one did.
“The noodles and the broth complimented each other very well.”

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.
Kate M.:  I prepared the Shin cup with boiling water. It was extremely easy and convenient making this product. It is a perfect meal for lunch time or when you are anywhere near a microwave.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Kate M.:  The level of heat and general spiciness was just right. It was not hot enough to over power the flavor of the soup and is balanced perfectly.

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