The Kitchn's Stephanie Ganz proved the deliciousness of this combination after texting a friend for some flavor direction. Mind blown, she tried the method with a slew of foods including deviled eggs. Ganz seasoned six eggs using half of a pack of Korean Nongshim Shin Ramen seasoning, explaining that the seasoning added a "spicy beefiness" to the dish.

Thomas G, a YouTuber with 16,000 subscribers, also sang the praises of ramen-seasoned deviled eggs. In a video, the YouTube creator added lime chili shrimp seasoning to a mixture of kewpie mayo and mustard. Amazon reviewers describe this seasoning as spicy with a prominent lime flavor.
