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.
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.
“I really like the firm texture of the noodles.”
