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 K. from CA 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 K.:  Spicy, rich broth. Mushroom and chili notes with a beefy, umami broth. Noodles are great and beat any instant noodle I've ever had!
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 K.:  Might add fresh scallions, sprouts or slightly cooked mushrooms to provide fresh crunch and texture. Could even add thin sliced beef, maybe even raw to hot soup!
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Karen K.:  How spicy it was! Also thought the noodles were the best I'd ever had in an instant soup. Seemed to have more bite, more chew than others.
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 K.:  I just added hot water and waited. Seems like a perfect snack for work or when you need something quick. Hot water is available everywhere, so it's the perfect pick-me-up for a busy lifestyle.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Karen K.:  I would tell them it is very spicy, but worth it. I would also say they could lessen the use of the spice packet when making to ensure they would enjoy. Add a little at a time.
