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 Virna V. from MS 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.
Virna V.:  I could taste the spicy seasoning that was boiled into my noodles, but it gave it a good flavor that added to the carrots and small flakes of mushrooms and onion. The texture of my noodles still firm but not mushy at all. You would think by having so much water in it, it would be mushy. The onions tasted really sweet and the carrots tasted as if honey had been glazed over it before it was added to the packet.
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)?
Virna V.:  I would have added three blended cheese to it.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Virna V.:  The mushroom was a good size and the onion was cut up nicely.
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.
Virna V.:  I filled it up with boiling water that I had put in the microwave and let it sit in the cup covered up for 4 minutes. While I waited for the noodles to process, I washed my dishes.
“If they do like spicy food, this is a great meal starter. ”
— Virna V.,  MS
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Virna V.:  I would tell them if they don't like spicy food, this product is not for them. If they do like spicy food, this is a great meal starter. If you are in a hurry, it doesn't take long to prepare.

Thank you for your time, Virna V.! We love your feedback.
