While there are plenty of spicy ramen products on the market, Samyang Hek's Nuclear Hot Chicken Ramen offers another level of heat. The product is rated to be around the range of 8,000 on the Scoville scale, meaning that it is likely the most spicy packaged instant ramen on the market. In comparison, the hottest jalapeño peppers are similarly ranked on the scale. On top of this, the new Korean instant noodle product from Samyang boasts a label that describes it as two times spicier than the original version.

Due to the extra-hot and spicy flavor of this unique packaged ramen product, many young consumers are partaking in the "nuclear fire noodle challenge" on YouTube, which shows how people react to eating this fiery snack.
