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 Candace J. from SD 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.
Candace J.:  This soup is a little on the spicy side, but don't let that fool you, the taste is delicious if you can handle the sting. Very soft, yet firm noodles soaked up the broth just enough so you still had enough broth left behind to drink. I was shocked with how well the dehydrated vegetables cooked and became soft and tasty.
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)?
Candace J.:  I think the Shin Cup would be wonderful if you added an egg to it after the hot water. This soup would be good if it was added to a homemade ramen to add some more heat if you had nothing else at home.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Candace J.:  I have tried a few different instant ramen from the grocery stores and none taste authentic, which I definitly enjoyed with this Shin Cup. The broth was very flavorful and noodles were nice and tender.

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.
Candace J.:  I had followed the directions on the cup for using the microwave. I had put water in a coffee mug and heated it up for 4 minutes until it was boiling. Once it was not enough, I added the water to the Shin Cup to the fill line and let it sit for 5 minutes. Very convenient since I am staying in a hotel and it would be a nice meal if I was at work as well.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Candace J.:  This soup is very flavorful and a little on the spicy side, but not burn your mouth hot.

Thank you for your time, Candace J.! We love your feedback.
