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 Abby K. from FL 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.
Abby K.:  I really like the smell. I cannot really describe any flavors, it is about medium spicy. The noodles are soft. The broth is more spicy and has the taste of noodles. As I eat more of it it becomes spicer and spicer!
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)?
Abby K.:  It would be great to add some fish and prongs to this. That would make a nice spicy dish. In fact, adding the flavor packet to any soup would spice it up and make it taste a lot better.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Abby K.:  It's definitely more spicy then other ramen soups I have tried. What I like most is that the flavor packet is separate so I can add as little or as much as I want.
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.
Abby K.:  It was very easy to prepare. I was concerned that the instructions would be in a different language, but they were not which was great.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Abby K.:  I am Hispanic so I would let them know that it is a medium to low spicy, but it does get spicer the more you eat, which is great.
