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.
