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 Kristen B. from NC 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.
Kristen B.:  The broth is definitely spicy, but not too spicy. The heat different points of the tongue making it linger for a few minutes after finishing. The pepperiness also makes your lips tingle. The saltiness was evident, but surprisingly not overbearing. The noodles are chewy and a bit hard to bite into, but delicious. Overall, the noodles helped balance the heat of the broth well.
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)?
Kristen B.:  I could definitely see myself adding a little sliced pork or chicken to this noodle soup to make it a complete protein packed meal.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Kristen B.:  What I liked most about the Shin Cup, is the spiciness and depth of flavor that I don't often get with other ramen products. Other ramen is generally too salty and I end up using only half the flavor packet, but the Shin Cup was delicious prepared as recommended.
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.
Kristen B.:  I prepared my Shin Cup in the microwave at home. The directions were clear and concise and made for an easy preparation with no clean-up.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Kristen B.:  On a scale of 1-10, I'd give the level of spiciness a 6. It's hot enough to make your lips and mouth tingle, but not overly spicy that you cannot taste the overall flavor profile of the Shin Cup.
“ The Shin Cup was delicious prepared as recommended.”
