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 Alexis J. from IL 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.
Alexis J.:  It was spicy and a little salty. The broth was very tasty between the two. The noodles were like typical ramen, soft and moist. They were good and just enough spicy and salty to not be overwhelming.
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)?
Alexis J.:  I would add an egg to it to make the noodles more together and tastes better more enhanced. I also would add some green onions for flavor and a little crunch.
“I liked the level and balance of salty and spicy. ”
— Alexis J.,  IL
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Alexis J.:  I liked the level and balance of salty and spicy. It was just right with both flavors to me. Other brand of ramen tend to be overly salty, this was just right to me.
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.
Alexis J.:  In the microwave and it was very easy and convience to me. It was very easy to prepare and go and directions were good.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Alexis J.:  It's not overly spicy where your nose is running. It's got just the right level of heat for me personally.

Thank you for your time, Alexis J.! We love your feedback.
