Very spicy, take caution when eating.

Now I know why. I made my first batch of these only moments after they arrived at my door. After preparing these as directed by the friendly pictograms on the back label (though I should have been warned away by the cartoon chicken holding what appeared to be some sort of warning sign), I sat down at my table to test my mettle against the sad and pathetic people in the videos. I should also note that my Korean wife was sitting next to me with a slightly amused expression (another warning ignored).
My first bite was uneventful. The noodles were firm, with a pleasant texture, and the sauce was flavorful and spicy. After my second and third bites, as my mouth's capsaicin receptors become more and more saturated, things started to change. What was once a nice tingling was now staring to build into something else. After the fifth and sixth bites, my mouth was now a searing pit. Beads of sweat formed on my face as my body's cooling mechanisms kicked in. As I finished the bowl (a feat I still can't believe I accomplished) my mouth was in full panic mode. My heart rate and respiration increased as I became more convinced that I somehow contrived to eat a big bowl of lava.
At this point I was in a sort of pain-fueled hallucinatory trace. I transcended my body, even as I became aware of my hands frenetically fanning my face, mouth agape in a pitiable attempt to dissipate the hellish, pulsating agony. My wife, I should note, was slapping her knees and weeping tears of joy.
Only after 15 minutes, as I lay in a sodden and boneless heap, did the endorphins start trickling into my system. Finally, the maw of flaming sulfur that had been my mouth started to extinguish.The pain began to fade, replaced by a pleasant tingling. After e few more moments, I breathed deeply, shuddered, and was still.
But this was not the end of my journey. A different type of pain began to emerge as the noodles worked their way through my gastrointestinal tract. As the day went on, my innards began to spasm, horrible and groping, as if they were trying desperately to push through my abdomen to freedom, no doubt looking for the nearest basin of water. By the next morning, my agony was inverted, and my normal morning ritual became a fresh excruciation. Fortunately it was a Saturday. Work would not have been an option.
On a side note, my wife also had a bowl and proclaimed them "spicy, but too sweet," and then went about her business. She is made of stronger stuff than I.
In short, the noodles have a nice texture, very spicy, but slightly too sweet. I recommend half of the lava packet. Also be prepared for a least a day of recovery time. Good luck.
I would rate my spice tolerance as higher than average, so I wasn't sure what to expect. When it comes to the Spicy Noodle Challenge, there are a whole lot of highly dramatic videos and reviews, and then there are some spice-acclimated people going, 'yeah, it's spicy, but whatevs'. So, I was a little afraid in case it *was* actually nuclear spice levels, but I also suspected that I would be in the latter category.
I made the ramen and the aroma was deceptively mellow, so I was a bit surprised at the heat at the first bite. Definitely very spicy. "Oh no," I thought, "If this is the first bite, it's gonna get so bad."
But then, interestingly, the heat kind of mellowed out from there. It didn't build and accumulate as I continued to eat, it just stayed about the same level as the initial heat. My mouth was burning, for sure, but I was able to finish it without any struggle. It's definitely spicy and I can definitely see people with lower spice tolerances finding it a challenge! I had the foresight to put lip balm on, so my lips weren't burning that bad.. my sinuses cleared, causing my nose to run, and I had some residual burning in my mouth for maybe 20 minutes afterward. A bit later, a mild capsaicin high kicked in, which was nice.
The noodles have good texture, very pleasantly chewy and firm. Flavor-wise, to be honest, it's almost all heat/spice, which overwhelms the other flavors. Every now and then, the chicken/seaweed/sesame flavor comes through, and it's good, but it's like one bite out of four. The rest, it's just a lot of spiciness that overwhelms the palate. However, I liked them enough that I had them again the next day and will be finishing the 5-pack without issue. :D
They have a nice sweetness along with the heat so it isn’t just fire. Don’t let that fool you though, these suckers are HOT. There’s a reason I used half the pack. I didn’t the first time and I felt the pain. While they aren’t the hottest thing I’ve ever eaten, they are certainly more spice than what I’m sure a lot of people have tasted before.

So here's me giving it the large to impress the ladies in the office and started bragging about a bit.
Cooking straight forward, how water in, cover for 5 mins and drain the water to add the sachets of hell and flavour.
Sat down ready to nosh the lot as quickly as poss and first bite to examine the lunch. Second bite in and hang on.... what's this happening? why is my nose running? how come my forehead is sweating? ..I can't feel my tongue let alone my mouth!
Then realising this is not just hot but bloody hell what am I eating ..one spoon is the equivalent of 10-15 Bombaybadboypot noodles.
Now the choice, do i whimper away and bin the lot or do I commit and continue on to punish me and my guts by finishing this off? Well after 20 minutes of drinking fizzy cola and eating a choccy bar in between (all I had available) I completed the task and decided to share the packets to my fellow colleges as no way would i go through another round unless I sacrifice the hot sauce sachet or only use a tad instead of the lot.
Good news is following day, I can feel my mouth and also the bowels didn't collapse upon themselves.
If you got the taste for hot stuff like this, give it a go but be warned...it's very spicy.
Sadly I have dishonoured my family and heritage as being an British Asian man, I can no longer take the hot stuff.
A word of advice, DON'T drink the left over spicy water, as spicy water is what will come out the other end!
Tipps wie man die schärfe aushalten kann:
- das Essen nicht heiß essen, denn heißes und scharfes Essen brennt mehr
- am besten nicht die Lippen berühren lassen, denn an den Lippen brennt es mehr (meiner Meinung nach)
- Joghurt hilft besser gegen die schärfe als Wasser
- nicht all zu große Häppchen nehmen und langsam essen, langsamer hält man es besser aus

Ich wünsche euch noch guten Appetit! Lasst es euch schmecken.
Despite this, they are tasty and a quick meal.
So spicy. So tasty. Slightly sweet, yet enjoyable. These gosh darn noodles are the bane of my exsistance. I mean- I just spent thirty bucks on INSTANT RAMEN. that's how good these noodles are.
I have an issue. Someone help.
Oh boy where to start with this.
The wife has been watching YouTube videos of people having this and figured it was a good idea to cop some. Without hesitation I agreed to purchase this.
We put two packets in, they're pretty quick and easy to cook. We then added only one pack of the sachet thingies in, thinking it would make it less spicy.
Then... The moment of truth... We both took a bite! Oh my goodness are these spicy I quickly finished my bowl along with a big cup of water. My nose was running and my tongue burning!
These are quite spicy indeed! You've been warned. I'm not having another one anytime soon. That's for sure.
You've been warned!!
I highly reccomend you try them.
BUT, the price has gone up to £10! They were £6.80 not too long ago! Very disappointed
Wouldve been 5 stars but the price is getting out of hand
Versand war recht schnell (eine Woche) und wurden auch ordentlich verpackt, wodurch keine Nudel zu Bruch ging.
However, as others have mentioned, the pricing on amazon is incredibly expensive. You can grab a 5 pack at your local Asian grocery for around 6 bucks. And that’s why I deducted 2 stars from my rating.
If you have no alternative, go ahead and pick these up, but you should probably look around first.
They advertise for five to be sold, however, I only received four. This being a disadvantageous matter, atleast the noodles weren’t out of date (which I expected when I purchased this). For the value of £6+, I paid £2+ Each which was not worth it. You can find Koka stir fry noodles to be flavoursome and good for price of 0.27p from Home Bargains .
That being said, it was enjoyable, these were filling due to the size of the noodles. But if you do order, please check korean stores online- you may just get them for the same price or maybe cheaper, and they will have 5 packs or whatever’s advertised 😂 since you’re buying from a credible* retailer.
