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 Emily G 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.
Emily G.:  The Shin Cup noodle soup has its own kind of heat to it. Initially the heat is not present but after a few bites it starts to warm up. I love how there is a presence of carrots, chives and mushrooms as well. Not only do they compliment the heat, they add more to the soup then spice and noodles. I followed the directed cook time of three minutes and let it set for about 5 minutes prior to eating. This allowed the noodles to finish cooking and they were soft and tasty! I have never tried anything like this but will definitely buy it again.
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)?
Emily G.:  If I was to make the Shin Cup with a means I could choose to have it with chicken. I think the seasonings that are present in the soup, would compliment a plain chicken breast perfectly.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Emily G.:  Personally I liked how similar it was to a traditional cup of noodles, yet completely different. Unlike a cup of noodles, you can add how much flavoring you would like. Also, it seems like the packaging is nicer because it isn't styrofoam that cracks.
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.
Emily G.:  To prepare the Shin Cup I simply added water to the line and put it in the microwave. I put it in for the recommended three minutes and let it set for about five. I thought it was a quick and easy meal.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Emily G.:  I would use the same statement that was used in this job, deliciously spicy because that's exactly what it is. But I would add that you can control the amount of heat by adding more or less broth. I think that would allow some to buy it that do not love lots of heat or don't want it hot at all.
