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 Celeste M. 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.
Celeste M.:  The broth definitely has a kick to it! The good thing about this product is you can control the spice level. I only used half of the soup base packet and I'm glad I did otherwise it would have been way too spicy for me. The noodles texture was good, no complaints there. The noodles and the broth complimented one another quite well.
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)?
Celeste M.:  I would use less of the soup base so that it wouldn't be as spicy .
“The noodles and the broth complimented one another quite well.”

Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Celeste M.:  The little vegetables inside were actually pretty good. Usually when I eat instant noodle soups I take out the vegetables because they taste weird.
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.
Celeste M.:  The shin cup was very easy to prepare. I added water (up to the line ) and microwaved for 4 minutes. I did 4 minutes instead of the suggested 3 because I like my noodles softer.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Celeste M.:  The Shin Cup is a very spicy, easy to prepare snack.

Thank you for your time, Celeste M.! We love your feedback.
