Taste test: After reviewing several variations of the original Hot Tamales, I finally got my hands on a box of the original (or at least the first box I remember) to do a formal review and fill a gaping hole in the confusing lineup.
When I tried the retro box, there was a strange variation in heat level from one piece to the next. The Fierce and Fire kinds seemed hot, but not necessarily hotter than the original kind that I remembered. As for this box, it seemed like the same thing as the retro box, with some pieces being purely the sweet cinnamon taste, while others had significant kick. So I'm still confused about the differences between the various versions, but I sure do like to eat them.
