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 Jeremy A. from NC 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.
Jeremy A.:  I tasted an intoxicating level of heat in the broth. It simultaneously excited my taste buds and made them go numb. The noodles were a firm and chewy texture at first but after soaking in the broth for a few extra minutes they softened up considerably. I would say this has a savory and extremely spicy overall flavor.
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)?
Jeremy A.:  I would add a bland cooked meat like pork or chicken. I feel the spices in the broth would flavor the meat.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Jeremy A.:  I like the intoxicating heat that other products lack. Most Ramen noodles are more salty than spicy. This one tastes healthier.
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.
Jeremy A.:  This was so simple anyone with water and a microwave can figure it out. All you do is add the powder, add the water, and then zap it.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Jeremy A.:  I would say this is the spiciest noodle cup I have ever eaten. It tastes great, but be prepared to be lit up.
