Last year, 7-Eleven Malaysia launched a Halloween combo set featuring a Ghost Pepper flavoured cola drink and the viral Ghost Pepper Spicy Chicken Black Noodle.
Ghost pepper is believed to be the spiciest pepper in the world with a Scoville rating of 1,000,000 units. In comparison, chilli padi is only 100,000 units.
Whilst the Ghost Pepper Spicy Chicken Black Noodle is widely available in Singapore for a while now, the cola has been elusive until now.
We saw the combo set at our nearest Sheng Siong today (Jul. 8), and this is how it looks like:
The Ghost Pepper Spicy Chicken Black Noodle has spawned numerous videos on Youtube, and similarly, the rest of the Internet has also given their take on the crazy snack.
We have never tried the noodles before, but if these tweets are anything to go, we’d say it’s one hell of an experience.

Got to try ghost pepper noodles today. But I ended up feeling like shit and threw up at the toilet bowl 🤮— A. (@Adelehing) July 4, 2021
Verdict: Mamee Daebak has been banned from my tummy
So the internet is basically in consensus of how crazy the noodles are, but how about the cola? Twitterverse, you’re up.
So, my college friend bought a ghost pepper noodles and cola combo…— Naru | なる木粉 🌙 (@narukikoawaa) October 6, 2020
I tried a ghost pepper cola drink a tiny bit and oh my god, this is like the more cursed version of Pepsi as I can feel the spice kicking in.
HOLY SHIT. pic.twitter.com/dBYWacyHTu
A “more cursed version of Pepsi” doesn’t sound good for the drink, especially since Pepsi is inferior to Coke. Don’t come at us; it’s a universal truth!
Here’s another review from someone who lived to tell the tale:
ghost pepper cola destroyed my tongue n nose🤧 pic.twitter.com/MgFVPAnMFu— ton (@syameyy_) November 10, 2020
A YouTuber, tanboy kun, bravely tried the Ghost Pepper Cola…while breaking his fast!
He attempted to hold a gulp of the drink in his mouth for 5 minutes and was visibly tearing up mid-way through the video!
Hmm, so far the reviews don’t sound promising. But if you’re still curious to try both the noodles and cola, consider this foreboding tweet fair warning:
My friend got it and its on sale. I'm not gonna try cos of health reason…but cola and ghost pepper..that is diarrea in the making…hehehhee— Joe (@godspine) July 4, 2021
Where to find it
We found the Spicy Chicken Noodle & Cola Combo at a Sheng Siong store in Punggol. However, we are not certain if it’s available in other outlets.
It seems to be on sale at S$2.50 (U.P. S$3.95) at the time of writing.
Alternatively, you can also purchase it at Shopee.
