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 Bradlon B. from GA 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.
Bradlon B.:  First I tried just the broth with no noodles. The broth is soothing with a spice kick. It seems perfect to use to help clear up throat/chest congestion. Then I tried the broth and noodles. The texture of the noodles were okay. I don't know if it was my microwave settings but they weren't as soft as I prefer my noodles. I let them sit a while and that soften them up.
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)?
Bradlon B.:  The thing I would add to the cup of noodles is a chopped up boiled egg. I would also add chicken pieces or sausage.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Bradlon B.:  One thing I like about the Shin Cup is that the cup itself is sturdy. I can let my noodles cool down and not have to worry about the cup leaking. I also like the spice kick. It's spicy but it's something I can withstand.
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.
Bradlon B.:  In preparing the Shin Cup, I used bottled water and a regular conventional microwave. I used bottled water because I prepared it at work. The directions are easy to read and understand. I have a 9-year-old son and he also made his own cup just by following the directions on the cup.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Bradlon B.:  I recommended it to my 9-year-old son. I told him not to use all of the spice package because it would be too spicy for him. I wouldn't recommend the Shin Cup to anyone that cannot handle spicy food.
