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 Jeff A. from CA 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.
Jeff A.:  You taste the chili pepper, black pepper, and a mild hint of the ginger. The noodles were of average taste compared to other soups. They were slender and the same length as other soups.
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)?
Jeff A.:  "To make it more of a meal I would add some carrots, more peas and some diced onions. Maybe add some type of meat like chicken. ."
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Jeff A.:  Easy to follow instructions on the cup. I liked the larger size cup. I also liked the broth packet instead of it already on the noodles.
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.
Jeff A.:  I followed the instructions and opened the lid 1/2 way, then poured the broth powder on top and filled with water. I then microwaved it for 3 minutes, then let it stand for 2 more minutes.
“Easy to follow instructions on the cup. ”

Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Jeff A.:  Was hot and spicy, but not overwhelming. You taste the spiciness more than the heat.
