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 Chioneso H from MD 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.
Chioneso H:  These noodles definitely have a kick. I cooked and tasted the noodles and then tasted the broth separately. The noodles have a similar taste to ramen noodles. The broth has a surprisingly spicier flavor than I thought. You can actually pour the broth over chicken and bake with it or you can cut up baked chicken and put it in the noodles to eat.
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)?
Chioneso H:  To make a full meal, you can add baked chicken or shrimp.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Chioneso H:  I really like the surprisingly super spicy taste. I don't think any ramen noodles are this spicy.

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.
Chioneso H:  To prepare, I opened and poured in all the soup base. I then filled the container with water to cover the top of the noodles. Lastly, I placed in the microwave for 3 minutes. After I took them out the microwave, I let them cool for 2 minutes and ate.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Chioneso H:  The spicy flavor is at least a 7 on a scale of 1-10.

Thank you for your time, Chioneso H! We love your feedback.
