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 Kaylynn W. 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.
Kaylynn W.:  Noodles are a little chewy, kind of like a stove top ramen. The broth is very spicy, but good. Together it makes a pretty good meal, personally thinking it's missing little citrus flavor.
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)?
Kaylynn W.:  I would definitely add lime too it. Pulls out the flavors and helps to compliment the spicy.
“The heat is the best part.”
— Kaylynn W.,  TX
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Kaylynn W.:  The heat is the best part. Most ramen does not have the good kick that this does.
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.
Kaylynn W.:  Filled shin cup with water, added seasoning and put it in the microwave. Can not be simpler than that! Very convenient for on the go, easy to store prior to cooking as well.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Kaylynn W.:  I would give it a 7 out of 10. It is more of a building heat though. The more you eat the more intense it gets.

Thank you for your time, Kaylynn W.! We love your feedback.
