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 Karilynn Y. from CO 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.
Karilynn Y.:  I really enjoyed this soup! The broth had a kind of beefy, mushroom flavor and the level of spice was just right. The texture of the noodles, not mushy but not too firm and kind of slippery, was perfect. I liked how they soaked up the flavor, especially the spice from the broth, not just the moisture. I also really enjoyed the vegetables and how they also had a lot of the flavor from the broth.
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)?
Karilynn Y.:  I think the Shin Cup would be great with Beef, Chicken or Shrimp added. I am already planning on making stirfry using some of the seasoning packet, cubed beef and fresh vegetables, served over the noodles.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Karilynn Y.:  I think what I liked the most was the texture of the noodles, but I also liked the variety of vegetables as well as the depth of flavor in the broth. The noodles are more authentically Asian in both flavor and texture than most other ramen noodles on the market.
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.
Karilynn Y.:  I prepared the Shin Cup in the microwave. It was very convenient to prepare since it only needed water and easy enough that any of my kids could handle it with no supervision.

Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Karilynn Y.:  I would only recommend this product to someone that enjoys very spicy foods and would tell them that the level of heat rivals the spicier entrees at most asian restaurants.

Thank you for your time, Karilynn Y.! We love your feedback.
