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 Mary A. from TX 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.
Mary A.:  The most prominent flavor note in the broth is a chili flavor. However, the next flavor that is present is a good beef flavor followed by numerous vegetable notes. Mushroom stands out from the vegetable notes. The noodles in the broth are a delightful pairing. The noodles are not too soft or too hard and have actually absorbed some of the broth making them taste even better.
“Shin Cup is so packed with flavor.”
— Mary A.,  TX
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)?
Mary A.:  I would like to add large chunky pieces of vegetable along with some pieces of steak to make a full meal out of it. I believe that would add another layer of texture as well as additional flavor.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Mary A.:  The first thing I noticed, especially compared to other ramen cup of noodles I have tried, is the large pieces of vegetables right on top of the noodles. Also, I usually have to add more spices to the noodle packs I have eaten, but this Shin Cup is so packed with flavor and is definitely spicy enough for 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.
Mary A.:  The preparation of the Shin Cup is super easy. I prepared mine in the microwave by adding water to the fill line as well as adding the flavor packet, then microwaved for 3 minutes. Simple. And can definitely be made for everyone's on-the-go lifestyle.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Mary A.:  The level of spiciness is more for the person that does like some kick to their food. I like a lot of heat in my food and eat spicy foods regularly and I find the heat level perfect.

Thank you for your time, Mary A.! We love your feedback.
