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 Aaron W. from FL 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.
Aaron W.:  Broth is deliciously spicy without being overpowering, spice hits the back of the mouth a few seconds after swallowing. Broth seems to be a beef base. Noodles are soft and long, giving each bite the perfect amount. The combination of noodles and broth makes for a perfect meal. I really liked the addition of the large piece vegetables.

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)?
Aaron W.:  I would perhaps add more water to tame the spiciness a bit and make more of a soup. The broth is very limited once the water is absorbed by the noodles. This would be great with the addition of some brisket and hard boiled eggs.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Aaron W.:  I liked the addition of some larger pieces of vegetables. The spice level was just right too with the amount of food in the package, but could be lessened to consume more like a soup. This is more flavorful than other ramen products I've tried.
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.
Aaron W.:  I prepared the Shin Cup by filling with water and putting it in the microwave. The setup was extremely simple. I liked that there was only one packet to add add the beginning as opposed to one in the beginning and one at the end.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Aaron W.:  On a scale of 1-10, I would rate this about a 6. You can taste the spiciness, but it is not overwhelming.
