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 S. from WI 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 S.:  Lovely refreshing pepper taste! The noodles were firm and salty. Not a fleeting spice, but it lingers in the back of your mouth after you've finished eating.
“Lovely refreshing pepper taste! ”

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 S.:  I would certainly add more mushrooms and I would make the add water line more clear. No use in diluting the spice intent. I would add some leftover chicken also warmed to make a heartier more protein filled meal.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Beth S.:  I certainly liked the bold spice! It wasn;t embarrassed to be spicy, it came right out and boldly declared. I also liked that the noodles stayed firm, they didn't get soggy lingering in the broth.
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 S.:  This was easy to prepare. It would be nice to make the soup base less messy or easier to open without tools. I also would recommend making the fill line more distinct.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Beth S.:  I would tell them it was a peppery heat, and maybe a 4 on the spice level.

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