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 Peggy W. 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.
Peggy W.:  I taste cayenne pepper. In the back of my throat I can taste habanero pepper. And some kind of a seafood flavor. Chicken bouillon cubes. The noodles are soft and tender. I think the noodles take away the flavor of the broth. Better separate.
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)?
Peggy W.:  I would add some kind of meat or seafood to it. If I made something with this it would be with rice and kimchi.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Peggy W.:  I like that it's spicy. I don't have to add anything extra. The other noodles have to be chewed up and these melted. I liked the extra veggies in it.
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.
Peggy W.:  I made it according to the directions. It was very convenient. This would be easy to take to work.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Peggy W.:  This would be medium to high heat. The spiciest would be medium. Just enough to give it a kick.
“I like that it's spicy.”
