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 Melanie T. from WA 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.
Melanie T.:  The noodles were soft yet firm enough to not be squishy, they were nice. The broth is very spicy which I like with a hint of vinegar at first taste but that went away. I loved the spicy beefy flavor, I could taste mushroom and onion in the broth mushroom which gave it a richer deeper flavor profile.
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)?
Melanie T.:  I would add bean sprouts, cilantro and sliced jalapeno.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Melanie T.:  I liked not having to use a pan, the cup was so convenient. Some other ramens I have tried are salty and thus was not.
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.
Melanie T.:  As I said before I loved the convenience and ease of the cup. I just added the boiling water, waited and enjoyed the noodles, so easy.
“I loved the spicy beefy flavor.”

Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Melanie T.:  I would give it 3 stars if I were describing it to my friends and tell them it is a bit spicy.

Thank you for your time, Melanie T.! We love your feedback.
