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 Rachel A. from IA 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.
Rachel A.:  The soup was spicy with hints of onions. The mushrooms were balanced by the flavor of the salt. The noodles had a soft texture resembling a well cooked pasta.
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)?
Rachel A.:  In order to enhance the experience, I would add diced chicken to the broth.
“I liked the spiciness of the broth.”
— Rachel A.,  IA
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Rachel A.:  I liked the spiciness of the broth, which is not typical of normal ramen. Also, the flavor of the broth overpowered the typical strong salt 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.
Rachel A.:  I prepared the Shin Cup in the microwave by adding water to the cup. The preparation was easy and fast.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Rachel A.:  The spiciness is surprisingly strong. It would be good for someone who enjoys spice in their meals.

Thank you for your time, Rachel A.! We love your feedback.
