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 Kelly A. from IL 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.
Kelly A.:  I taste spicy garlic, pepper and onion and I believe mushrooms broth and lots of salt which I believe is soy. The noodles taste like ramen noodles. The taste of this is pretty tasty. I feel like it is too much salt/sodium though but good flavor and filling.
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)?
Kelly A.:  I would add chicken and something to cut the sodium down, maybe just more water. This would then turn it into a larger portion of soup for a dinner. You could also add the chicken and some veggies like carrots mushrooms and green beans and green peppers and turn it into more of a stir fry.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Kelly A.:  It had very good flavor. I love the spiciness of it and the garlic comes through a lot also. Most other Ramen noodles do not taste this spicy. It also does seem as though the noodles are a little thicker which is nice.
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.
Kelly A.:  It was definitely an easy preparation to do. I used hot water and filled to the line and let it sit closed up for 3 minutes and stirred it up and ate it.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Kelly A.:  I would say it is spicy and if you can't handle any spicy not to try it but if you like a little kick then this is great for you.
“If you like a little kick, then this is great for you.”
