From noodles to ramen, Samyang is a must-try brand!
The Korean spicy noodles brand, Samyang, has taken the world by storm and is one of the bestselling noodle brands across the globe. Samyang was founded by Jeon Jung Yoon in 1961 and was one of the first instant ramen brands in Korea created at a time when there were food shortages in Korea. Samyang has since upheld its status in creating the best instant ramen in Korea.
Since the creation of instant ramen post World War II, it has been embraced as a universal, comforting, quick and cheap meal across the globe. It’s not a surprise considering it only requires boiling water and a spare 2 minutes. Whilst many brands have jumped onto the instant ramen trailer, Samyang has particularly enhanced its status in the ramen world because of the vast array of quirky and innovative flavours of Samyang Ramen that they offer, particularly well known for their spicy flavour. Samyang pride themselves on using natural, high-quality ingredients and has played a key role in improving the Korean diet and health.
Samyang Ramen has received explosive popularity across the globe because of their unique fiery taste.
Samyang’s spicy noodles became popular on the internet in 2016 after YouTube stars took part in the viral “Korean spicy ramen/fire noodles challenge” to test their spice-o-meter and see if Samyang is spicy. Samyang’s spicy noodles popularity continues today and since then, Samyang has introduced a line of Buldak noodles.
Samyang’s Buldak noodles are one of the spiciest noodles available on the Korean market and are said to be 8,000 Scoville heat units and in the upper range of the hot flavour scale. The release of the Buldak noodles, now available at Sing Kee Supermarket, spiralled another unintended viral craze of Samyang spicy ramen.Samyangs Buldak noodles have a totally unique and tasty flavour and whilst the faint-hearted may not survive after consuming a pack on their own, the meals you can make using them are endless and unique.
