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 Lynda A. from IA 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.
Lynda A.:  The broth had a rich beef flavor, the green onion taste was very prominent. The chili powder really gave it a kick! The noodles were the perfect blend of firm and soft. Delicious over all, but definitely spicy!
“The noodles are the best!”
— Lynda A.,  IA
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)?
Lynda A.:  I think shrimp would be great, either in the soup or on the side.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Lynda A.:  The noodles are the best! Microwave noodles always seem to be soggy, but these were perfect!
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.
Lynda A.:  I used the microwave and it was very easy. The directions were very clear and direct. Great for at the office or a quick snack.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Lynda A.:  On a scale of 1 to 10, I'd give it about a 7. Not overwhelming but not bland either.

Thank you for your time, Lynda A.! We love your feedback.
