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 Jessica F. from VA 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.
Jessica F.:  This noodle soup provided a burst of flavor almost immediately. The broth was a perfect pair with the noodles, as the noodles were soft, however, not mushy or, "over done". As a heat lover myself, the broth was a pleasant suprise because it was a combination of hot and spicey.
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)?
Jessica F.:  Although I was satisfied with my Shin Cup as my entire meal, I believe adding chicken, shrimp, or steak would really pair well with the ingredients of a Shin Cup. I believe that it would taste great with baby shrimp after being chilled in a refrigerator for a few hours.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Jessica F.:  What I loved most about the Shin Cup was the hot and spicy flavor. A lot of products may say, "spicy" or "hot" however, never really is hot enough for a true spice lover!

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.
Jessica F.:  I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to prepare the Shin Cup. Since I was preparing it in a microwave, I took the lid off completely and filled it with water to the inside line. I placed it in the microwave for 3 minutes. Unfortunately, a little water boiled out of the cup resulting in a small mess that needed to be cleaned. The cup wasn't too hot to take out of the microwave, which was nice. After taking the cup out of the microwave, I stirred the noodles and broth and then began eating.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Jessica F.:  The level of heat is top notch and is recommended for any individual who truly loves a hot flavor. In addition, the overall spiciness should not be compared to any other type of noodles because the spiciness of the Shin Cup exceeds expectations.

Thank you for your time, Jessica F.! We love your feedback.
