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 Erin B. from OR 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.
Erin B.:  The depth of flavor (unami) is nice, though a bit salty. The spice is rather intense (in a good way) and hits the back of your tongue. You can taste the shitake mushrooms and the added flavor and texture they offer is good, I wish there were more of them. The texture of the noodles is good, they hold their bite and absorb the flavors of the broth well. I would prefer it without the carrots, they don't add much and their flavor is off putting.
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)?
Erin B.:  I'd add avacado, fresh scallions and a dash of sesame oil.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Erin B.:  I appreciated the spiciness and the Shitake mushrooms.
“ Just spicy enough to keep you wanting more.”
— Erin B.,  OR
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.
Erin B.:  I followed the microwave directions. It was easy and convenient.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Erin B.:  The level of heat is about 3 stars (out of 5). Just spicy enough to keep you wanting more.

Thank you for your time, Erin B.! We love your feedback.
