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 Jerry V from CA 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.
Jerry V:  As the smell of a ramen noodle soup filled the air in my kitchen, the rumblings of my inner demon could not withhold its appetite any longer. Opening up the warm lid brought a tantalizing steam cloud of spice. In that moment a flood of water engulfed my mouth. Taking my first fork full, I received a mixture of moderately mixed spices, enjoyably bitter onion, and a serenely soft stream of noodles. It made me feel fulfilled, the spiciness represented on the package was directly present in the meal itself - it said what it would do for me and for that I am fulfilled.
“Enjoyably consistent levels of spiciness await those who try this cup.”

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)?
Jerry V:  I would add boiled and diced carrots and broccoli. If I have it, I would also add other types of cooked noodles, because mixing noodles is a pleasant combo for me.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Jerry V:  What really separated the shin cup from other cups was the seasoning included. Any company can provide simple noodles, what makes a cup of noodles is the seasoning and shin really got the spiciness of it down. Not overly or underly spicy, and I like that.
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.
Jerry V:  It was very easy to set up the cup. Most people use microwaves, but I much prefer just boiling water and letting it sit in the cup. I feel boiled water soaks in better that microwaved water.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Jerry V:  If you follow proper procedure you can have the most ideal levels of heat, but that requires a level of small patience. As far as spiciness goes, it provided an even and well tempered amount of spiciness. Enjoyably consistent levels of spiciness await those who try this cup.
