Taste test: These mid-sized spherical candies were dark red overall, with some lighter, orangish areas, sort of a cross between Red Hots (hot and round but not chewy) and Hot Tamales (chewy but medicine capsule-shaped).
I bit in to find that they were indeed chewy and packed lots of cinnamon and a good kick of heat. As with Hot Tamales, I just couldn't stop eating these. Other tasters had the same problem, as they kept going back to the bag for more. Thankfully, the folks at Gimbal's packed quite a lot of LavaBalls into the bag.
