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 Travis C. from AR about Nongshim and here's what he 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.
Travis C.:  Most noticeable was the spicy zing of the red chili pepper. A hint of onion and mushroom helped give a homey quality. The noodles seemed cooked to perfection after just three minutes in steaming water.
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)?
Travis C.:  I would prepare a nice steak to go with my noodles. The spicy quality of the noodles really hits the spot. But the steak will help fill you up.

Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Travis C.:  First was the ease with which preparation was achieved. Next I quite enjoyed the level of heat. Helps clear the sinuses.
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.
Travis C.:  I opened the top half way as the directions indicate. I then placed one cup of water in the microwave for 3 minutes. I then poured the boiling water into the cup and placed a fork over it to hold it down. It was a easy and speedy process.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Travis C.:  I know people who like spicy food. I would say it is like having a nice hot jalapeno with a teaspoon of chili powder tossed in. It was just barely over my normal heat tolerance level. But not too severe for me to handle!
