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 Karen F. 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.
Karen F.:  There is a ton of flavor packed in this little cup! I loved that it wasn't just a powder seasoning, but lovely pieces of chilis, scallion, mushroom! The noodles hold up well, not mush, very good flavor. The flavor of the broth reminds me of a delicious Korean hot pot - be warned, this is truly spicy, but in the best way - absolutely delicious! Next time, I'm going to crack an egg into the steaming soup for extra protein!
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)?
Karen F.:  I would love to crack a fresh egg into it and let it cook in the broth, some silken tofu would also be delicious added to it.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Karen F.:  What I enjoyed most about the Shin cup, is that it tastes like I went to my favorite Korean place and got my favorite hot pot! I will absolutely be buying these again!
“There is a ton of flavor packed in this little cup!”

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.
Karen F.:  The Shin cup was very easy to prepare. I used just tap water added and microwaved. If I were at work, I would use the hot water from the coffee pot.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Karen F.:  The Shin cup is serious when it says "spicy!" On a level of 1-10, I'd say a very strong 7.

Thank you for your time, Karen F.! We love your feedback.
