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 Paula C. from MI 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.
Paula C.:  The base packet mixes perfectly with the water to make a spicy and flavorful broth. It is a nice balance of spices and beef flavors. Ginger is a lingering note that hits the back of the tongue pleasantly. The noodles have a spongelike texture, but they compliment the broth. Together, the broth and the noodles are a balanced, tasty pairing.
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)?
Paula C.:  The addition of salad size shrimp or thin beef slices would make the Shin Cup a hearty lunch or snack. I would also like to use the Shin Cup in my ramen noodle salad recipe. The spice mixture in the flavor pack will give it amazing depth.
“The broth flavor is my favorite part.”
— Paula C.,  MI
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Paula C.:  The broth flavor is my favorite part. It has a heightened spice flavor that sets it apart from the other ramen products.
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.
Paula C.:  I actually put the Shin Cup under my Keurig and pushed the mug button. It was that easy. I put the lid down and waited the 3 minutes, took the lid off and stirred. The directions are complete and easy. It made the prep simple and quick. It took less then 5 minutes to be able to enjoy the Spicy Shin Cup.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Paula C.:  On a scale of 1-10, with 10 being the spiciest, I would give the Shin Cup an 8. It has an elevated spicy flavor that is not over the top. It has a bold, balanced flavor.

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