Taste test: I've noticed in some of the other Hot Tamales varieties that the level of "hot" in the cinnamon candies varies a lot from one piece to the next, but with this box, they've actually touted the fact that the pieces have different heat levels, while color-coding the pieces.
The orange pieces were described as "hot" as they shared the box with medium "hotter" red ones and "hottest" dark red ones. The orange "hot" ones did taste good, but they were not hot at all, with tasty, mild cinnamon but no kick whatsoever. The "hotter" ones had some good kick, and the "hottest" ones were indeed quite hot. It was easy to tell the orange ones from the two red kinds, but visually distinguishing the two shades of red was tougher. The different colors and levels of heat made this mix fun to eat.
