People in North and South America seem to be developing a taste for spicy Korean instant noodles.
Korea's instant noodle giant Nongshim has seen constant sales growth in the Americas since 2015, according to a report released on Wednesday by the Korea Agro-Fisheries and Food Trade Corporation.
The company's Shin Ramyeon has become a household name for spicy Korean instant noodles across the world. Sales in the American market reached $76 million last year thanks to a 25 percent growth at major superstore chains like Walmart and Costco.
Samyang Foods' instant noodles have also gained in popularity among lovers of spicy foods, with exports to the Americas doubling in the past three years.
