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 Angela S. from WA 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.
Angela S.:  Wow. That's a flavorful punch. I taste red peppers I think. There's a lot of spice and it's amazing. The noodles are great. Nicely textured and soft but not mushy. The way noodles should be.
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)?
Angela S.:  I know this isn't kosher to Asian food, but I really want bread or crackers to dip in it. It's so yummy that I want every last drop of the broth. I'd like to add pieces of grilled chicken or beef brisket and some sprouts maybe for another texture.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Angela S.:  This is much spicier than regular ramen noodles. It feels like a bigger portion. The noodles are much better than other ramen noodles. I can see enjoying this when battling a head cold.
“There's a lot of spice and it's amazing.”

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.
Angela S.:  This was so easier. I heated up my electric kettle. While the water heated, I opened the spice pack. I was able to complete a quick chore while the noodles cooked. Super easy to prepare.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Angela S.:  This is super spicy, in the best way. The kind of fire that could kick a head cold fast or satisfy a craving for spicy food without hurting your stomach.

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