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 Austin B. from AZ 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.
Austin B.:  The taste is a salty one, with a hint of chicken. The broth and noodles are spicy and can be compared to chili powder. The texture of the noodles is soft.
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)?
Austin B.:  I would recommend a glass of milk with my noodles, are a wine, preferably a dark red to compliment the spice. In terms of recipes, I would add fresh chicken to enhance the chicken flavor of the noodles.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Austin B.:  I like it better, because it is bigger. The spicy ramen are usually disgusting, because they usually taste like pure salt. These taste like chili powder. It cooks similarly so it really has only pros compared to other noodle cups.
“It is incredibly easy to prepare this meal.”

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.
Austin B.:  It is incredibly easy to prepare this meal, I filled the cup to the correct spot with tap water and used the microwave. It was done within a couple minutes.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Austin B.:  I would compare this heat to the extra spicy hot Cheetos or maybe a hot salsa from a Mexican restaurant, since I live in Tucson.
