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 Chris C. from TX 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.
Chris C.:  I like spicy foods and the heat of this soup it spot on. First whiff of the soup you can smell the red pepper. After tasting the soup you sense hint of green onion and garlic. The noodles were a little chewier than expected but, that went away the longer they sat in the broth.
“I like that this soup comes in a paper cup, not styrofoam.”

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)?
Chris C.:  I liked the soup the way it came, but I did enjoy it with a side of baby carrots. If I had the option I would have like to add some fresh cilantro and juice from a lime wedge. Also maybe a few more veggies like peas or corn.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Chris C.:  I like that this soup comes in a paper cup, not styrofoam like other ramen soups. I feel this is better for the environment.
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.
Chris C.:  I prepared my soup by following the directions for adding hot water. I closed the lid and waited 3 minutes before diving in. Making the soup was as simple as it gets plus, you can take it almost anywhere.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Chris C.:  The heat from this soup on a scale of 1-10 is about a 6. It has a kick at first, but doesn't linger and keep you from enjoy the soup.
