Just when I thought I was badass after polishing off the Samyang 2X spicy hot chicken flavored ramen, I received a box in the mail with six cups of Mamee Daebak Ghost Pepper Spicy Chicken Ramen testing me. Eat a cup! They can't be that spicy I told myself. They are though, who am I trying to fool?
I thought Beau and I, demonstrated we could handle the heat. After all, the when we polished off the Samyang 2X spicy hot chicken flavored ramen and the Mallon cupboard is now stocked with a half a dozen or so of them. She declared them her favorite noodles and took a package to work and I ate another pack the day after I streamed myself the noodles.
Supposedly the ghost pepper is 1 million Scoville Heat Units. Some quick math tells me that this bowl of noodles is approximately 100X more spicy than the Samyang 2X ramen. Really? We shall see. Look for another video of Beau eating these Ghost Pepper Spicy Chicken Noodles and a stream of me giving them a go. For the record, I do not plan on making spicy food the focus of my YouTube channel. Call this a phase. Hopefully my stomach will endure.
In today's stream, Scott will discuss the Wuhan virus and the spicy food craze, all over a big bowl of Samyang 2X Spicy Chicken Noodles - Nuclear Fire Chicken. Which countries have the spiciest foods and why are humans so keen on spicy food?
I'm no glutton for punishment, but over the years living in Thailand, I've eaten my share of spicy food. It's been quite some time since I had a meal that had my nose dripping and my eyes watering. I figured these noodles to be tame. I bought a pack, showed them to my wife and she promptly confiscated them as her own. The video below documents her experience.
This is the original version I was going to upload to YouTube. This version is about a minute longer than the one on YouTube and has a couple of things in it I decided to keep out to make it a little more YouTube friendly.
