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 Kevin M. from WI 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.
Kevin M.:  I followed the instructions exactly and my meal turned out perfect. The noodles weren't too soft nor too hard. They had a nice consistency. The vegetables also turned out great; they were a nice addition. I liked that the contents really absorbed the water so it wasn't a watered down dish. The taste was great. The broth had a lot of depth/complexity to it. I enjoyed the flavor. It had a gourmet taste to it. I'm not usually a fan of spicy food but I found this meal to be surprisingly bearable! It was definitely hot, but it wasn't so hot that I needed to drink water after each bite. I really enjoyed it and would purchase again!
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)?
Kevin M.:  I would enhance the experience by adding additional vegetables. I would add peapods, water chestnuts and broccoli.

Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Kevin M.:  I liked that this cup had a more complex seasoning. It also had quiet a bit of season. I find that with traditional ramen the seasoning is very mild. This had a very full and distinct flavor.
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.
Kevin M.:  It was surprisingly easy to prepare. I added water to the instructed line and then placed the bowl in the microwave. I let it stand for a few minutes to cool and then ate right out of the bowl. Anyone could make this!
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Kevin M.:  The product definitely has some heat and spice. I didn't find it overwhelming though. I'm typically not a fan of hot/spicy food yet I was able to finish the bowl without taking sips of water. The heat/spice is bearable.
