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 Blaire R. from VA 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.
Blaire R.:  The noodles are tender and soft, but the texture does not make them difficult to hold on a fork and eat. The flavor notes that stand out in the broth are pepper, garlic, and ginger. The noodles taste very flavorful, juicy, and spicy.
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)?
Blaire R.:  I would add some cooked peas to this add some healthy vegetables.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Blaire R.:  I like that it opened up my sinuses. It is definitely the spiciest and boldest flavor of ramen I have tasted.
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.
Blaire R.:  I used the microwave, and just followed the very quick and simple directions on the package. It came out perfectly and was super easy.
“The noodles taste very flavorful, juicy, and spicy.”

Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Blaire R.:  I would tell others that it is a lot spicier than other ramen products on the market, and that it has a lingering heat effect in the mouth, lips, and tongue area.

Thank you for your time, Blaire R.! We love your feedback.
