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 Gema V. from NC 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.
Gema V.:  The noodles are a bit mushy, but they absorbed the spice of the broth. I think the vegetables gave the noodles and the broth a better overall taste. The broth has a good amount of spice; any more would be too much.
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)?
Gema V.:  I would add some meat, either chicken or shrimp. I'd probably pair it with some chicken and rice, as a side dish or appetizer.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Gema V.:  I like that it's spicier than the other soups. It's also more filling. I wasn't able to finish the whole cup. In comparison to other ramen, I feel like it cooked quicker.

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.
Gema V.:  It wasn't hard. I took the lid off the soup, added the contents of the spice packet and some water and put it in the microwave. After I let it sit for a minute when it was done, I stirred it and started eating. It was still steaming.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Gema V.:  I would recommend that only someone who liked spicy foods tried it. Like I stated earlier, any more spice could be too much for some.

Thank you for your time, Gema V.! We love your feedback.
