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 Maria C. from TX 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.
Maria C.:  The different flavor notes that I tasted in the broth was bold and spicy. The broth has a great flavor to it and it tasted like a spicy beef flavor. The texture of the noodles were soft and easy to chew. The overall taste of the noodles in the broth was great. With each bite of the noodles, you get some of that spicy broth flavor. I will, however, admit that for someone who loves spicy food, this one really got me.
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)?
Maria C.:  To enhance my mealtime experience of the Shin Cup, I would add vegetables to it. I would like to try new recipes with the Shin Cup. I would maybe make it with beef or chicken chunks to make a spicy soup.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Maria C.:  The best thing I liked about the Shin Cup was how spicy it was. I have tried other spicy soups but this one really made my tongue feel on fire. This product differs from other ramen I've tried in cup size. I love how the Shin Cup gives enough space to add the water. Other ramen that I have tried doesn't leave room for water and most times it spills over while cooking in the microwave.
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.
Maria C.:  I prepared the Shin Cup in the microwave. I followed the instructions for microwave and it was very easy to prepare. I would not take this on-the go. It is best prepared and eaten at home as the spicy level will get you good.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Maria C.:  If I were describing this product to someone else, I would give the level of heat a 8 on a scale of 1 to 10. It's a type of heat that seems to linger on the tongue.
“The broth has a great flavor to it.”
