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 Myles G. from LA 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.
Myles G.:  When I tasted the broth the word that came to mind is spicy! I only used half of the soup base and I feel the soup is still packing so much heat. Aside from the heat of the broth it is nice and palatable. I found the texture of the noodles to be very inviting. I do have to admit that this is a winning soup with Asian flare.
“This is a winning soup with Asian flare.”

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)?
Myles G.:  I would definitely add a meat product to bring out some more texture and complexity. I would pull back on the amount of spice in the base.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Myles G.:  I feel the Shin Cup is more environmentally friendly. Differs from other Ramen noodle cups in that most of those are Styrofoam.
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.
Myles G.:  I filled the cup to the described level with water and heated the product at three minutes according to the directions. The broth boiled out of the cup on to the bottom of the microwave.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Myles G.:  I live in the Southern part of United States and we like seasoned food down here. I would definitely use the term spicy to describe the soup to someone else.
