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 Rebecca L. from TX 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.
Rebecca L.:  The broth is spicy and I can taste some vegetable flavors in it. Noodles are thin and chewy unlike other instant noodles. It's a mellow spicy flavor and I love those little dry vegetable flakes in it to add some flavors as well.
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)?
Rebecca L.:  I would add some vegetables like mushrooms and cabbage maybe. Also, I will add an egg in it to make it more nutritious. I'm sure meat will be a great addition, as well.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Rebecca L.:  The most I love is the noodle. It has chewy texture.
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.
Rebecca L.:  I added room temperature water to the line inside the cup and microwaved for 3 minuets. It was very convenient and fast. Definitely good on-the-go meal.

Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Rebecca L.:  It's spicy, but pretty mellow. It's not burn-your-lips spicy. And also you can adjust how spicy you want by adding the soup base more or just a little bit.

Thank you for your time, Rebecca L. We love your feedback.
