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 Charlene S. from LA 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.
Charlene S.:  After preparing the product according to it's instructions, I tasted it by slowly swishing it around my mouth. The texture of the noodles were not rubbery, but tender and long in length. The broth was extremely spicy and bursting with flavor. Overall, the product was an interesting explosion of flavor and intense heat.
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)?
Charlene S.:  I would add beef or chicken to the product in order to combine protein with a carb. Additionally, I think adding garlic would enhance the overall flavor of the product.
“I loved the Shin Cup's logo and design because it stands out when browsing the grocery aisles. ”
