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 Kelly T. from OH 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.
Kelly T.:  I tasted a very spicy flavor in the broth, almost a paprika flavor. Very spicy, but I like spicy food and flavor, so it was good to me. The noodles were very chewy, not much flavor to the noodles.
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)?
Kelly T.:  To enhance the Shin Cup, I would pair this with a fresh salad, some steamed vegetables and/or even a grilled chicken breast. The Shin cup has a lot of flavor, but I am not sure how filling it would be.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Kelly T.:  I liked that the Shin Cup had more flavor than a typical ramen noodle. It is very spicy, so not for someone that doesn't like spicy flavor. I feel the Shin cup had more substance to it than a typical Ramen as well.
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.
Kelly T.:  I prepared the Shin Cup by reading the label and doing as it said, adding water and microwaving. It was extremely easy and quick to make.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Kelly T.:  The Shin Cup is pretty spicy! Not for someone that doesn't like spicy food.
