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 Debbie H. from CA 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.
Debbie H.:  The Nongshim Shin Noodle Soup has a nice spicy taste with a beef based broth. The noodles were the perfect texture and absorbed the broth flavor well. The vegetable flakes were a good addition to the overall soup taste and consistency.
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)?
Debbie H.:  I would have a nice seaweed salad with the soup. As an alternative, I would add some beef chunks and vegetables like baby corn, mushrooms and water chestnuts to make the soup a meal in itself.
“I liked the spicy flavor and how well the noodles absorbed the flavors of the broth. ”

Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Debbie H.:  I liked the spicy flavor and how well the noodles absorbed the flavors of the broth. This made it stand out from other ramen I've tried.
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.
Debbie H.:  I heated a mug of water in the microwave and then added the soup base and water to the cup. After letting it sit for three minutes, it was ready to eat. It was very easy to prepare and would be a great meal on the go.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Debbie H.:  The flavor isn't very intense when you first eat it, but you can taste the spice. After a few bites, I could feel a nice tingle on my lips though.

Thank you for your time, Debbie H.! We love your feedback.
