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 Tadd F from NJ 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.
Tadd F:  This is a pretty good product. The noodles, at least the way I prepared them were a bit al dente. Very much like a typical noodle cup ramen. The broth is refreshingly spicy, but not too spicy - unless you're really timid spice wise. Also it is somewhat salty, but that is to be expected. I prepared them with a cup of hot water from my coffee machine and put some dried mushrooms on top. All in all a good noodle 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)?
Tadd F:  I would add some mushrooms like I did. I would also try it with shredded pork or chicken or add to a veggie stir-fry.
“As packaged ramen goes, it's near the top!”

Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Tadd F:  I definitely prefer the spicy broth and the lack of "fake meat flavor" some manufacturers add. As packaged ramen goes, it's near the top!
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.
Tadd F:  I already mentioned I added dried mushrooms. It was super easy to prepare.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Tadd F:  The heat and spiciness on a ten point scale is about a six.
