The noodles itself are great. I actually rinse them really well in cold water, and that helps with the heat. Makes it a little more bearable. This is also the least spicy option, but lets be real, most people can't handle it anyway so it's still extremely spicy! You HAVE to pair with milk if you're sensitive to any spiciness at all. Avoid it getting all over your lips, because it will burn! Drinking water will only make the burn stronger. Reason for the four stars is because Amazon overcharges a lot. Asian grocery stores sell for a lot cheaper, sometimes they have a 2/$10 deal. I only got for Amazon because I was too lazy to buy IRL. But if you're trying to save money, there are better options than Amazon IMO.
