A little while back, Samyang Foods produced a variety called Buldak Mini. It was a smaller noodle block, however it clocked in at 12,000 SHU. Since people like to go big or go home, they came out with this – Challenge Buldak. This time it’s a full size noodle block, and it is served cold. Again, this one comes in at 12,000 SHU. They even have a hashtag mentioning this challenge attribute. I decided to give it a go and in the video below, you’ll see I conquered in in just over 3 minutes. Let’s give this one a look!

Finished (click to enlarge). This variety was pretty good – the noodles have a nice chew and the gauge imparts a nice mouthfeel, especially since they’re served cold. The flavor is sweet and spicy. I should note that since I conquered the 3x Spicy yesterday, my tolerance for this one was pretty high – but it’s still quite spicy. Challenge met and deliciously so. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars.
