Gourmet Ramen, Anytime x Anywhere
“Together with the broth, the noodles create a premium microwave soup that tastes rich, but isn't priced rich.”
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 Brandon D. from CA about Nongshim and here's what he had to say:
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.
The broth itself is a unique blend of flavors ranging from the recognizable Asian taste combined with a garden fresh, hearty tasting, warm goodness, followed by a touch of heat to leave your pallet wanting more. The noodles, when cooked properly, provide a texture that stands above your normal microwaved noodle, with an almost "soft chewy crunch". Together with the broth, the noodles create a premium microwave soup that tastes rich, but isn't priced rich.
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)?
To further enhance the mealtime experience, I would include a disposable eating utensil for eating on the go. Flavor wise, I would add slightly more/bigger chunks of vegetables like celery, carrot and cabbage.
What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
A great feature of this product is the larger container/bowl size, making it easier to consume. The packaging also projects cultural and flavor authenticity to the consumer, making it easier to purchase without the worry of taste.
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.
I started by peeling off the lid, and then adding room temperature water from the tap. I then proceeded to insert into microwave and heat on high for 3 minutes. After microwaving, I remove the soup and mix with a fork. For a quick meal, it is very fitting. As for on the go, a utensil and hot water are needed. Great taste for a great value.
If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
I would tell someone it has enough heat to satisfy your flaming flavor needs, and the right amount of spice that adds to the flavor, not just the temperature.
Thanks for your feedback, Brandon D., glad you liked it.
