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 Kelli H 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.
Kelli H:  Boy! That was spicy! It's spicy in a good way though. The noodles became nice and tender after the initial cooking time. I can taste the chili pepper in the broth. It gives a nice little "zing" to the taste of the noodles. The spices were right on. The soup definitely isn't lacking in flavor.
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)?
Kelli H:  In order to enhance my mealtime experience, I could definitely see myself adding some precooked chicken to the soup in order to add some hearty protein.
“ The spices were right on.”

Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Kelli H:  I liked the quantity of product. It differs from other ramen because it has a much bolder, spicier flavor.
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.
Kelli H:  I like to boil some water in my electric skillet and then pour it into the soup. I leave the lid on for 3 minutes and then remove the lid. The soup is very easy to prepare. I do prefer to pour the soup in a real bowl though.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Kelli H:  I would definitely describe the heat as a higher level. It is not for someone who doesn't like spicy things. It has a great kick to the broth and I think anyone who enjoys spicy things would enjoy this soup.

Thank you for your time, Kelli H! We love your feedback.
