When I purchased this stuff, I had no idea that this was a kind of ramen that people used to make challenge videos with. I’m not a spicy food aficionado, so when I ate this stuff, the results were catastrophic. It was so spicy it made me physically ill. The good thing is that the heat does go away relatively fast, but it is really spicy. It’s spicy to the point that you can’t really taste anything but the spiciness. I don’t know why they advertised chicken flavor, but it’s not there. What’s interesting is that it’s not just the heat, the actual taste without the heat is spiciness or peppers or something.

Worth mentioning is that this is a stir fried noodle. That means you boil the noodle, empty out most of the water, then pour in a liquid sauce packet and stir fry the thing.

Overall, this is spicy challenge ramen. If you love incredibly spicy things, this is for you. Otherwise, avoid this.

Score: 6/10
