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 Krishawnda E. from VA 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.
Krishawnda E.:  The broth was spicy but was very flavorful. You are able to taste the mushroom and green onion and not just taste the heat from the spices. The texture and chew of the noodles are by far my favorite from any instant noodles.

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)?
Krishawnda E.:  I would add some shredded chicken and more vegetables. I also think beef would also pair well.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Krishawnda E.:  What I liked most was the noodles. The chew and texture were perfect and it held the soup flavor well.
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.
Krishawnda E.:  I perfer the hot water method so I boiled some water and covered it for the recommended 3 minutes. It was very easy. The cup is big enough not to have any splash back and the inside line goes around the entire inside. Great for an easy quick meal.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Krishawnda E.:  I would rate the spice level at a 6. You can taste the spice. The heat I would rate at a 8 because it does build in your mouth after eating.

Thank you for your time, Krishawnda E.! We love your feedback.
