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 Michelle M. from FL 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.
Michelle M.:  The noodles are perfectly done and flavorful with notes of chili that add quite a bit of heat. It's also the perfect amount and satisfying for a light, quick lunch.
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)?
Michelle M.:  This would be really good with some shredded beef and extra carrots.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Michelle M.:  The noodles were perfectly done and they didn't get mushy. One of the big differences between this and other ramen is the level of salt, so many derive most of their flavor from huge amounts of salt.
“The perfect amount and satisfying for a light, quick lunch.”

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.
Michelle M.:  I prepared this exactly the way the package called for and came out perfectly. The last ramen cup I tried took longer than called for, which is aggravating when trying to get something hot quickly.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Michelle M.:  The heat level is relatively high, on a scale of 1-10 I would give it a 7 but it's not overwhelming and it's not just heat there is actual flavor to back it up.

Thank you for your time, Michelle M.! We love your feedback.
