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 Darius M. from IL 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.
Darius M.:  With this being the first time I have tried the Nongshim noodle soup I was excited to see what it would taste like. The broth wasn't too heavy, which I was happy about, and had a sharp spiciness to it which was good. The noodles weren't too tough and I added extra seasonings for more flavor. Overall, this was an excellent noodle cup that I am happy to have had for the first time.
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)?
Darius M.:  The only thing that I would use to enhance the noodle cup is the pepper and creole seasonings to the noodles to give them a little extra boost.
“This works perfectly when you need something to eat on the move that is satisfying.”

Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Darius M.:  The thing I liked most about the Shin Cup was the spicy aspect of it. The previous ramen cups that I have ate where always regular and the extra kick keeps me interested in the meal.
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.
Darius M.:  The preparation was pretty straight forward. Like most ramen cups, it was very convenient to make. Literally just open it, pour the soup powder, add water, throw it in the microwave, and then add your own seasonings and you're off. This works perfectly when you need something to eat on the move that is satisfying.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Darius M.:  I would describe the level of heat and spiciness as moderate. You will definitely feel the kick but it won't burn your mouth off.
