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 Beth O 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.
Beth O:  The broth is so spicy that my lips are burning and my nose is running. The noodles have the perfect texture and the broth has the taste of cayenne pepper. I love the taste of this soup and I will eat it again.
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)?
Beth O:  I love the taste and I would love to try to add chicken or beef to the soup. I would like I buy several packages of soup and put them all together with cut up chicken or cut up beef and have it as a meal. I think my family would love it.
“ I love the taste of this soup and I will eat it again.”

Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Beth O:  I like that it is spicy and I have never tried any other ramen noodles that were this spicy. I bought one and wish I had another one to eat later. It was so good.
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.
Beth O:  I put a cup of water in my microwave to heat it for 3 minutes. I opened lid on the soup, then I opened the flavor packet and poured it in the cup. I put the lid back on for 3 minutes, then stirred it and ate it. It was very easy to prepare and very convenient when I am in a hurry.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Beth O:  This soup is very spicy, and I would not recommend that someone who doesn't like spicy food should eat it. It is spicier than I was expecting it to be.

Thank you for your time, Beth O! We love your feedback.
