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 John B from GA 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.
John B:  The noodles smelled flavorful and spicy, so I could hardly wait for them to cool down enough to taste them. While cooling, the noodles soaked up the broth making a part of the dish, not just filler. The initial sip of broth was so spicy it almost took my breath away, and I like spicy foods. The spice eases off after the initial hit, but still remains. I was unable to taste anything else due to the spice. The noodles are perfect, except for being difficult to eat with a spoon due to their length. The overall taste is good, but a little too spicy for me, and again I like spicy foods.
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)?
John B:  I would add meat - shrimp I think would go well with the spicy flavor of the broth.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
John B:  I liked using the container to prepare and eat the product. I also think having the seasoning in a separate packet would allow me to control how much seasoning is added.
“The noodles are perfect.”

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.
John B:  It was very easy to prepare. The cup would allow for prepping ahead then take it on the go.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
John B:  I would caution someone not to use the entire packet of seasoning at first until they determine their comfort level of the heat.
