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 Heather S. from LA 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.
Heather S.:  I was immediately hit with the intense spiciness of the broth. I really like the firm texture of the noodles when comparing to other soups of this style that seem to get more soft. I found that I would have to take one or two bites and put the soup down for a few minutes and then go back because of the intense spiciness.
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)?
Heather S.:  I wouldn't make it with any other recipes. This Shin cup soup would be the perfect product to do a spicy food challenge with my daughter.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Heather S.:  I like the texture of the noodles the most and how they stayed firm. The main difference from any other ramen I have tried is that this is the spiciest I have ever tasted.
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.
Heather S.:  I prepared this soup in the microwave. It makes for easy serving because you can eat it right out of the bowl it comes in.
“I really like the firm texture of the noodles.”

Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Heather S.:  To me, this product had more extreme heat, as opposed to any specific spiciness.

Thank you for your time, Heather S.! We love your feedback.
