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 Adam S. from KS 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.
Adam S.:  Overall it's not bad, and I am most likely to buy again. Noodle texture was good, not too soft, but not overly chewy. Broth had hints of meat (I'm assuming from the mushrooms) and hints of fish. All together it's a good noodle soup for the price. Wish that there was a spicier variant. Overall 7/10.
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)?
Adam S.:  I personally added some more hot sauce (siracha in this case). As I have stated in the previous question, a spicier version of this would be amazing!
“Like the fact that it is spicier than other brands.”

Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Adam S.:  I like that it's a noodle soup instead of just noodles. Also like the fact that it is spicier than other brands.
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.
Adam S.:  Prepared in the microwave using the instructions on the cup. I really liked that it was done in three minutes (compared to others that take 5 minutes plus).
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Adam S.:  I would describe it as a spicier noodle cup and not for people who don't like spice. I will put it at a 6/10 on a heat scale with a jalepeño as a 5/10.
