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 Tram T. from FL 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.
Tram T.:  The broth was savory without being too salty. The noodles were a good portion, they were soft with a slightly chewy texture. The noodle cup was spicy but not frighteningly so, just hot enough to make one sweat and searching for a cooling drink afterwards.
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)?
Tram T.:  I would add some protein to it to make it a more substantial meal.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Tram T.:  I liked it that the noodle cup was small and portable. The portion was good enough for a quick snack or more of a quick lunch if some protein was added. Best of all, the cup was paper so it could be disposed or recycled.
“The broth was savory.”

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.
Tram T.:  It was easy to prepare. I boiled some water, poured it into the cup, and then added the seasoning packet. I waited a couple of minutes and the noodles was ready to eat.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Tram T.:  Spicy enough for a heat lover, all others can try with a glass of milk nearby!

Thank you for your time, Tram T.! We love your feedback.
