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.
“ The Shin Cup was delicious prepared as recommended.”

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.

Thank you for your time, Kristen B.! We love your feedback.
