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 Stephen C. from WV 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.
Stephen C.: First off, no matter how tempted you are to taste the powder broth, do not do it! Trust me, the broth tastes good after it's cooked by itself. In only three minutes you have a very spicy and flavorful cup of noodles. The noodle's texture was very good, the spiciness was also full of flavor! The only bad part I saw about this, is that I only bought one.

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)?
Stephen C.: These noodles were actually so good, that I went back and bought two more noodle cups. I cut up some imitation crab stick & green onions and put them on top of the noodles on one of them and on the other I cracked an egg on to the top and let the white part cook in the steamy hot broth. The yolk broke when I mix the noodles up and melted into the flavor of the broth perfectly.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Stephen C.: It seemed to cook faster and have a deeper flavor in the broth instead of just being spicy. The broth flavor had multiple levels of taste to them. The spicy hits you first, then the peppery salty flavor and lastly the base of the broth flavor lingers in your mouth. The noodles did not taste like cheap noodles either.
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.
Stephen C.: Super easy to prepare. Just open up the lid and fill it to the line with room temperature water, then microwave for three minutes. If you have a hot water kettle you can just pour hot water into it and let it sit till it's done. If you're adding extra ingredients you can just put them on top of the noodles after you add the water or microwave it and put the lid on top for a couple minutes to warm up the extra items.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Stephen C.: Spicy and full of flavor. It makes you want to eat more than one cup.
