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 Bryant W. from UT 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.
Bryant W.:  This cup is much better than the usual ramen cups. Although still dried noodles, a much better texture than other quick noodles I've had. I enjoy spicy foods, but this seemed more heat than flavor so adding a bit of siracha and some added vegetables were perfect.
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)?
Bryant W.:  I added some fresh veggies with these noodles. I also enjoy egg ramen, which I would try if I had the extra time.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Bryant W.:  I enjoyed that the cup did have a little more heat than other hot cup noodles. I also like that it has flakes of other herbs/spices/onions rather than just a packet of salt.
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.
Bryant W.:  These noodles were simple to make, but not any faster than other cup noodles. The bit of extra time to cut up some fresh veggies made the noodles pretty good, while still being quick and easy.

Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Bryant W.:  Like stated before, it seems like more heat than flavor, but about a 6 on a 1-10 scale, and similar to a hot wing or spicy soup. Not extremely hot.
