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 Val C. from FL 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.
Val C.:  It tastes like eating almost a kimchi with noodles. It's spicy, yet Asian vegetable savory flavor. It has a very classic Asian soup texture.
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)?
Val C.:  A great way to enhance meal time experience with the Shin Cup would be to add different types of mushrooms to it. Broaden the flavor so that it is not just a lot of onions, possibly add some bok choy or introduce other Asian vegetables to go with it's tangy taste.
“I would describe it as the perfect amount of heat and tangy-savory-flavor.”

Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Val C.:  More ingredients included like pieces of mushrooms. Also a spicy with tangy flavor and it's a nice cup to eat out of!
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.
Val C.:  I prepared the Shin Cup by boiling water with my rice maker, which didn't take long at all! Then I easily poured the water and it was done in less time than I expected. So it's great for lunch in a rush, easy to open too!
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Val C.:  I love spicy food and I am use to them. So if you're heat lover, I would describe it as the perfect amount of heat and tangy-savory-flavor.

Thank you for your time, Val C.! We love your feedback.
