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 Amy W. 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.
Amy W.:  I can taste a hint of soy sauce and mushrooms. The broth tingles on my tongue. It's not too hot or too spicy. It's just right. The noodles are firm, yet chewable. The noodles are a wonderful blend of savory and spicy flavors!
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)?
Amy W.:  I would add shrimp to the cup to make it a more substantial meal. I may also add more carrots and peas to make the noodle soup more filling.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Amy W.:  I like the stronger flavors of the Shin Cup versus other similar cups. I also like that you can put the entire cup in the microwave to cook it fully.
“Wonderful blend of savory and spicy flavors!”
— Amy W.,  VA
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.
Amy W.:  The Shin Cup was easy to prepare. I chose to add room temperature water to the cup and to cook the noodles in the microwave.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Amy W.:  The heat of the noodles is just right. The Shin Cup noodles aren't too spicy.

Thank you for your time, Amy W.! We love your feedback.
