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 Marie J. from GA 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.
Marie J.:  I'm not sure I'm tasting any different flavors in the Shin Noodle Cup Soup. It just tastes spicy to me. The first bite definitely has spice to it and it just gets spicier the more you eat of it. However, I like spicy foods, so I do think it tastes good. The noodles and the broth both taste good to me. There is a spicy chili and green onion flavor that I detect. The noodles has a similar texture to Ramen, which is fine with me‚ I also like Ramen.
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)?
Marie J.:  I might just add a little bit more mixed vegetables and chicken to help enhance my mealtime experience of the Shin Cup. Adding these ingredients might also enhance the flavors and tone down the spice.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Marie J.:  What I liked the most about the Shin Cup was the noodles. They had great texture to them and it didn't taste processed like other cup of noodles. I also enjoyed the spice, although, spicier than I expected, it was delicious.
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.
Marie J.:  I just sprinkled the soup bad on top of the noodles and added water up to the recommended line. Then I placed the cup into the microwave for 3 minutes as instructed. I thought it was easy and convenient way to prepare a quick meal.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Marie J.:  I would describe it as being very spicy. I would not recommend this product to someone who doesn't like spicy foods or who cannot tolerate much spice in their food.
“It was delicious.”
