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 Mallory G. from OH 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.
Mallory G.:  The flavor of the broth are very spicy, but not the type of spicy that doesn't taste good. The texture of the noodles are soft and flavorful and balanced out the spice of the broth. Together they pair very well.
“I really like the spice of it .”
— Mallory G.,  OH
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)?
Mallory G.:  I would use it as a side, which maybe an Asian based meal. I really like the spice of it so I may add the soup base to other dishes to give that same flavor.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Mallory G.:  It is so easy to use. I like that you eat out of the same container so there's no dishes involved. Other ramen come in a package that you throw away so you still have to put it in a bowl and prepare it that way.
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.
Mallory G.:  It was so easy and convenient to make. It can be made anywhere that has a microwave, so it's something that can be eaten all the time for a person with a busy lifestyle.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Mallory G.:  I would say it's spicy but it's still tasty. If someone had a very, very low tolerance for heat I would maybe refrain from recommending it but almost anyone else I would recommend to at least give it a try.

Thank you for your time, Mallory G.! We love your feedback.
