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 Annie M from NJ 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.
Annie M:  Lots of flavors in the broth and I tasted ginger, mushroom, cumin, and a hot pepper sauce similar to the one you get with Chinese takeout. Heat definitely lingers in your mouth. Noodle texture was like a cooked sprout or soba noodle. Smooth to eat and broth gives the noodle some spicy kick. Need to use a fork for noodles and twirl similar to spaghetti.
“Lots of flavors in the broth.”

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)?
Annie M:  I would probably add chicken and additional stir fry vegetables.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Annie M:  It was quick and easy to heat. I like spicy so thought it had more of a kick than other noodles, due to the broth.
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.
Annie M:  I followed the microwave directions way of doing it. Very easy and quick. No mess but came out very hot so had to cool down to taste broth. Can be a quick go to meal.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Annie M:  You need to like spicy to enjoy it. Probably a 3.5 in spiciness on a scale of 5. Leaves a hot taste afterwards and opens up the nose.

Thank you for your time, Annie M! We love your feedback.
