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 Tearsa S. 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.
Tearsa S.:  The broth tastes like a mixture of beef with paprika & Chile. The noodles are not mushy. The noodles keep a consistency of al dente when combined with the broth. The soup tastes like spicey beef noodle soup.
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)?
Tearsa S.:  I would add cheese to give it a queso flavor. If I had left over beef pork or chicken I would also put that in the soup.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Tearsa S.:  The spicey beef flavoring stood out. I also like the fact the noodles didn't become mushy.
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.
Tearsa S.:  Very simple prepping involved; just add water then microwave. This is a good meal when you are short on time. Clean up was simple. The all around on-the-go meal.
“This is a good meal when you are short on time.”

Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Tearsa S.:  If you want a good spicey kick, this is a great meal. This tastes like a a mixture of paprika and chile. More hot than mild.

Thank you for your time, Tearsa S.! We love your feedback.
