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 Tina C from WI 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.
Tina C:  The noodles are at the perfect consistency, not crunch nor mushy. The broth has an awesome kick of flavor without being overly spicy. I can taste the chili powder, tabasco and other peppers in it.
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)?
Tina C:  I would add frozen veggies such as snap peas or broccoli. I also think it would go great with chicken.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Tina C:  I like the kick of flavor behind it, not just flavored with salt. The noodles are better, not as soft as the ramen noodles get after sitting for a bit.
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.
Tina C:  Followed the easy directions to make, opened it, put the packet on top of the noodles, added water and put in microwave for 3 minutes. Very easy to make and something you could leave in your desk or locker and make wherever there's a microwave.
“The broth has an awesome kick of flavor.”

Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Tina C:  Definitely has a kick to it but isn't over powering. Spices are good, don't leave your mouth burning.

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