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 Brian N. from VA 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.
Brian N.:  Wow - impressively spicy with a rich almost sweet and sour flavor mixed with your favorite hot sauce. The noodles are spaghetti thick and don't get mushy, but keep there texture and have just the right amount of chewiness. The broth and noodles are delicious and will delight anyone who enjoys soup with a spicy kick.
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)?
Brian N.:  The shin cup is a meal. It did not leave me feeling over full or still hungry. Next time however I will probably prepare some veggies and maybe some chuck steak on the stovetop to be added to the soup. I might also add a dash of soy sauce and garlic oil.

Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Brian N.:  The shin cup keeps its promise of hot and spicy. Its noodles also keep there texture and don't get mushy. The packaging was also of high quality and preparation instructions clearly marked. I will definitely purchase this product again. Other spicy ramens are not really that spicy and the noodles of other ramans get over soggy and mushy.
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.
Brian N.:  I followed instructions written very clearly on the package. I heated water in an electric kettle and added it to the shin cup. I waited and then I ate. It took less than 10 minutes to prepare and was very convenient. The instructions were very easy to follow.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Brian N.:  The level of spiciness is just right. The heat is right on the edge of extreme, but still allows you to be able to enjoy the flavor of the broth and noodles.
