Your K-Barbecue Is Half Off If You Can Handle This Spicy-Ramen Challenge

Can you handle the heat?

( If you're online all the time, you've most likely heard of the Fire Noodle Challenge. In case you haven't, it's pretty straightforward: All you have to do eat a packet or two of Korean instant ramen Samyang Hek Nuclear Hot Chicken Ramen as fast as possible. Except, it isn't quite as simple as that, because this particular brand of instant ramen is dubbed the world's spiciest. It holds a spiciness level of 8,706 Scoville units (the measure of the spiciness of a chili pepper), which is currently the highest among all spicy instant ramens.
