Taste test: This bag of 10 candy sticks looked much different from the Red Hots that we know and love, as each looked a lot like a peppermint candy stick, about 4 inches long and half an inch in diameter, so quite a bit thicker than your typical candy cane. The spiral stripes were pink and red instead of white and red. We don't review much hard candy here, but the lure of hot cinnamon was too much to resist.
I sucked on the stick to find a moderately hot sweet cinnamon taste, much like the more conventional Red Hots candies. The stick slowly dissolved as I sucked on it, and the cinnamon heat was quite consistent throughout. Very good.
