Nuclear Noodles are intenseeeeee.
If you’ve been on social media at all this year, then you’ve probably seen one of the gazillion videos on YouTube showing the various people who’ve tried the infamous ‘Fire Noodle Challenge.’
The rules of the game are actually quite simple:
1. Prepare a packet of Samyang Spicy Chicken Stir-fried Noodles.
2. Eat the noodles.
Just when I thought the Fire Noodle Challenge was about done and ready to ride off into the sunset to hang out with the Mannequin Challenge and the Harlem Shake, photographer-model couple Steve Bitanga and Amanda posted a video of Asian model Victoria Nguyen and her sister Diana Nguyen slurping on “2x Nuclear Fire Noodles!”
Apparently, the people at Samyang came out with an even spicier version containing 8,706 Scoville heat units — that makes it the spiciest instant noodles available on the market!
A buddy of mine had me try these Nuclear Fire Noodles and to be perfectly honest I haven’t felt normal since. So you may think these girls are being a little over-dramatic, but there isn’t a doubt in my mind that that sh!t HURT.
Victoria took it way better than Diana, and she also made the video worth watching — Drooling? Sweating? Tiny sports bra? That’s some entertaining sh!t right there, so don’t mind me while I rewind and re-watch this video on repeat for the rest of the work day.
Here’s the footage of the 2x Nuclear Fire Noodle Challenge, so you can see what real pain looks like:
