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 Sherah B. from MI 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.
Sherah B.:  The flavor notes that I picked up on were mushrooms and onions. The noodles have a good texture, nice compliment to the flavors. The spice is just right, not overwhelming to the 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)?
Sherah B.:  I think to enhance it, I would add shrimp. I believe that would be a good addition.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Sherah B.:  I liked the spicy flavor, as well as the onion and mushroom mixed all in together. It has more of an authentic or unique taste I haven't tasted with other ramen.
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.
Sherah B.:  I removed the entire lid, added the sauce packet and then filled to the water line. I then microwaved the cup for 3 minutes. The preparation was pretty easy, directions were easy to follow.
“It has more of an authentic or unique taste.”

Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Sherah B.:  I would compare it to the spiciness of hot sauce. I would say that if they generally add hot sauce to foods, then this would be fine.

Thank you for your time, Sherah B.! We love your feedback.
