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 Carly C. from WA 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.
Carly C.:  The noodles were firm and with a pleasant texture. The carrots added additional texture and flavor. The broth was very spicy and and helped make the noodles more exciting.
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)?
Carly C.:  I would add some extra green veggies to add some more nutrition and balance the spicy flavor. Another item to add would be some raw egg to add some additional protein.
“I would definitely recommend it to a friend who enjoys spicy foods.”

Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Carly C.:  The cup is a good size and the paper feels tough enough to last without becoming to soft. I also felt the spiciness was different than the top ramen I have eaten before.
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.
Carly C.:  I boiled some water, added the soup base and poured the water into the cup. I waited 3 minutes and enjoyed the Shin cup. It was extremely straightforward and easy to prepare.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Carly C.:  The broth was pretty darn spicy. It is at the end of my usual spicy threshold. I would definitely recommend it to a friend who enjoys spicy foods.

Thank you for your time, Carly C.! We love your feedback.
