Could you handle the world's spiciest instant fried noodles?
On May 12th, what is without a doubt the world's spiciest instant yakisoba (fried noodles) went on sale. And according to one reviewer, it definitely makes you sweat.
The name of the yakisoba is "EDGE: DEVIL HOT." On the package in big characters is written, "WAY TOO MUCH HOT PEPPER." This EDGE series previously put out an "EDGE: DEVIL MAYONNAISE" yaksisoba, which many thought just had way too much mayonnaise on it, just as advertised! So when Acecook Japan announced a new EDGE super hot yakisoba, expectations were that they would just go way overboard with the spiciness. "Contrary to how hot it looks, it's not like you feel pain when it goes in your mouth and down your throat," said an instant yakisoba connoisseur. "It's not like habanero hot, they just use a lot of shichimin (Japanese seven spice red pepper)." He apparently was able to actually enjoy the flavor, and not just be overwhelmed by how spicy it was.
DEVIL HOT is only available for a limited time and sells for 214 yen, a little over two dollars. "My boss didn't even need water and ate the whole thing in one sitting" the yakisoba connoisseur continued. "I was fine too, but my tongue started stinging and I was sweating all around my nose. But that's it."
Just add hot water...
Then add sauce and spices...
And, Bon Appetit!
