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 Teresa J. from AZ 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.
Teresa J.:  The broth is very intense, with notes of mushroom and anchovy and lots of spice! The noodles have a great springy texture and are fun to chew. Overall, I like this product because the flavor is strong and has a good kick!
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)?
Teresa J.:  I might add a hard-boiled egg to it, the way ramen is served in restaurants. Or I might enjoy it with a side of plain edamame to balance out the intense heat and flavor of the noodles.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Teresa J.:  My favorite thing about this ramen is the level of spiciness. The broth is so flavorful that I could slurp it all up until the cup is completely dry. This product is different from other cup ramens because there are lots of different flavors and aromas in the broth, not just a one-note spicy flavor.
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.
Teresa J.:  This Ramen Shin Cup is very easy to prepare. I just used a hot water pot to boil up some water, and poured the water right into the cup and waited three minutes like the directions instructed. I think it would be an easy product to prepare and eat on the go if you could get access to a microwave.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Teresa J.:  I would describe the level of heat as an 8 out of 10. I would describe it as very spicy and perfect for those who want that extra kick.
“I like this product because the flavor is strong and has a good kick!”
