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 Beth L. 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.
Beth L.:  Right away, the broth tastes zingy and full of spice. Comforting chicken broth creates the perfect background for the spicy noodles. The noodles are perfectly soft without being mushy. I love the green onion flavor in the broth!
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)?
Beth L.:  I would add some chicken or maybe a fried egg. or I would serve it as a side with potstickers.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Beth L.:  I loved how spicy it was as compared to most ramen. Also, I loved the chunks of mushroom in it.
“The noodles are perfectly soft.”

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.
Beth L.:  I peeled the lid halfway and poured in the soup base. Then I poured in boiling water from the kettle up to the line in the cup. I put the lid back in place and let it sit for three minutes before consuming.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Beth L.:  I would tell them that it's very spicy, but that if you like spice, it's really good.

Thank you for your time, Beth L.! We love your feedback.
