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 Melinda P. 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.
Melinda P.:  I like the texture of the noodles. I left it in the water for longer than the instructions said, but they did not get mushy. Still a nice, almost al dente texture. Spicy broth, but not overwhelmingly so. The Shin cup also has a smokey flavor that I liked.
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)?
Melinda P.:  I think the Shin Cup would be a good base for some ground beef and some added vegetables.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Melinda P.:  The Shin Cup had a more complex flavor than other ramen I've tried. It's a little spicier than I prefer, but was still really good.
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.
Melinda P.:  Shin Cup was easy to prepare. It's truly a set it and forget it prep process.
“The Shin cup also has a smokey flavor that I liked.”

Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Melinda P.:  The level of spiciness for the Shin Cup is around a six out of ten. Hot, but not unbearable.

Thank you for your time, Melinda P.! We love your feedback.
