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 Maria W. from IL 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.
Maria W.:  You taste a lot of different flavor profiles. Aside from the spicy flavor, there is a hint of anchovy flavor, beef flavor, green onion flavor. The noodles are cooked al dente in the 3 mins. They complement the broth very well. If you are looking for something tasty to eat with a lot of spice, then this is definitely something you should eat.
“The spice gives it great flavor.”
— Maria W.,  IL
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)?
Maria W.:  I would use half the flavor packet to season some chicken or shrimp and add it in there. I would also add some Asain vegetables to it.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Maria W.:  The flavor was much better than most ramen I have eaten. It also doesn't taste as salty. This is definitely something I would eat again.
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.
Maria W.:  I have the bottled water in the cooler that also has hot water. I put the flavor packet in and filled the cup with the hot water up to the fill line. I weighted down the lid with my spoon to keep the heat in. I timed it 3 mins and it was ready to go. I stirred it thourghly and gave it a taste.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Maria W.:  I would tell them it is very spicy but it doesn't leave your mouth with that burning feeling. The spice gives it great flavor.

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