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 Gabby G 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.
Gabby G:  The flavor is spicy with a perfect blend of flavor. I do not microwave food, so I felt that using hot water/stove top method was also better as it gave me a way of controlling the texture of the noodles.
“The flavor is spicy with a perfect blend of flavor.”

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)?
Gabby G:  I don't often eat soup, but I would probably add some tofu to this or more fresh veggies.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Gabby G:  One of the things I like is the paper cup versus foam cup in other soup options. Also, I like the spices as they give the soup enough of a kick without have to add spices.
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.
Gabby G:  It was convenient for me because I left it in the cup and just poured hot water over it. I must it sit while put some groceries away and was able to enjoy it rather quickly.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Gabby G:  The spices are enough to give this soup a flavorful broth, while adding layered spice and flavor. The heat/kick is appealing without being overpowering.

Thank you for your time, Gabby G! We love your feedback.
