We love our ramyun. Cheese and ramyun. Egg and ramyun. But peanut butter and ramyun?

Apparently, it makes a great combo too.

On 30 May, Facebook user Sherwin Lacson shared a photo in the group Subtle Asian Traits of a packet of Nongshim's Shin Ramyun with a sticker on it that recommends adding peanut butter.

The caption reads, "How does this taste like? Anyone tried putting Skippy on this ramen?"

Several people in the group were left puzzled by the unique concoction, while others revealed that they've tried it and it does taste good together

One person commented that combining ramen and peanut butter is actually a thing, especially in the US

In a Facebook video last year, Nongshim America explained how to make ramyun with peanut butter. 

Several recipe articles also mention using ramen, the Japanese equivalent of the Korean style instant noodles (ramyun). We even found a recipe on Martha Stewart's website.

While some said the combination is a hard pass for them, most were up for it

According to this article, the peanut butter thickens the broth, making it creamy and nutty, almost similar tasting to pad thai.

If you want to try it out, someone shared in the comments that they mixed in about one tablespoon of chunky peanut butter to their ramen.

Have you tried this combo? If you have, what did you think of it? Let us know.

Remember when this restaurant in Sabah served boba in ramen a couple of years ago?
