If you need the world's ultimate two-in-one hangover cure, consider picking up a pack of Samyang Hek's Nuclear Hot Chicken ramen, which might possibly be the spiciest instant noodles you'll ever eat.

The devilishly red junk food noodles clock in at around 8,000 on the Scoville scale, which according to Insider food, makes them one of the spiciest (if not the spiciest) packs of instant ramens on the market. To get an idea of how hot that actually is, these noodles are roughly equivalent to the hottest jalapeño pepper you can find in the grocery store. (While that may seem like a relatively tame beast to conquer, you're probably not slurping up a bowl of liquified jalapeño on a day-to-day basis.)

If you need further proof as to how hot these noodles are, look to YouTube for proof: Drop nuclear fire noodle challenge into the search box, and you'll be met by a tearful montage of sweaty vloggers falling victim to this absurdly hot snack.

Luckily, if you want to try your hand at a spicy challenge that won't actually kill you, these extra-hot packaged noodles are available online at Amazon.
