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 Juliet N. from UT 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.
Juliet N.:  I can taste the beef, onions, and carrots. The noodles are just right, just very slightly firm. The flavor is very spicy and I find it delightful.
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)?
Juliet N.:  I would eat it as is. Some other recipe variations might include an addition of more cooked carrots or some peas. Any kind of summer squash would be a great addition. Another enhancement could include thickening the broth with corn starch and adding meat over the noodles. Beef is an obvious meat choice but chicken would go well with the flavor also.
“The flavor is very spicy and I find it delightful.”

Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Juliet N.:  I like that although I let the noodles sit in hot water for more than 3 minutes, they we're still a perfect texture. Texture is very important to me.
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.
Juliet N.:  I boiled a pan of water. Then I poured the boiling water into into the cup just up to the line. I then closed the flap over it and let it sit for about 5 minutes.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Juliet N.:  I would tell them it is an 8 out of 10.

Thank you for your time, Juliet N.! We love your feedback.
