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 Delsie L. 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.
Delsie L.:  The noodles are little bit mushy but not horrible. The flavors I'm getting are spicy, chicken, and onion. Together, the noodles and broth are a good combo. I'd say it's a bit too spicy for my taste but still a great taste.
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)?
Delsie L.:  If I were going to add something it would be fresh vegetables. Some carrots, celery, and green onion to add some crunch to it.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Delsie L.:  I like that this is a more filling cup of noodles, you got a lot of food for the price. I love that the flavor profile is strong and you cannot miss it in the shin cup. I also like that the cup isn't styrofoam and doesn't leave a chemical taste behind.
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.
Delsie L.:  I prepare the shin cup by adding water and microwaving it. It was super easy to do. If I were to have this on the go it would be perfect all I would need is water and a microwave.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Delsie L.:  The spice is subtle in the beginning and really kicks in at the end. It's geared more towards spice lovers.
“ I love that the flavor profile is strong.”
