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 Jason P 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.
Jason P:  Noodles are soft, but not soggy, perfectly cooked after 3 minutes in boiling water. Broth is very spicy and salty, there is a hint of onion or something similar.
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)?
Jason P:  I would eat it with something cold and/or sweet to offset the spicy heat. A side of fruit or crunchy raw veggies for example.
“The spicy flavor was the best part.”

Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Jason P:  The spicy flavor was the best part. Other than that it is very similar to other ramen style noodles I've tried.
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.
Jason P:  I boiled water in a teapot and followed the instructions (poured water in and let it sit for 3 minutes). Preparation was very convenient and fast! I could have taken it with me in the car or public transport if I had been in a hurry.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Jason P:  It is very spicy. Certainly edible, but on the upper edge of suitable spiciness for me. I would compare it to adding pickles jalapenos to a salad or sandwich.
