Hot Tamales Fierce Cinnamon

Taste test: After many years of eating Hot Tamales and then discovering the Fire version (which was maybe slightly hotter than the regular version), I found this "Fierce Cinnamon" flavor confusing.

Was this another extra-hot version, and if so, was "Fierce" supposed hotter or less hot than "Fire"? Or is "Fierce" just a new name for the original? The dark red covering most of the box (replacing regular red dominating the original box) had me thinking it was some sort of extra-hot version, but once I tried some of them, I was pretty sure it was just a new box for the original formula. And I have no complaints about the original formula, as these Tamales were chewy, very flavorful and had a nice, mildly hot cinnamon kick. But it would be helpful if Just Born could help us out by more clearly differentiating their products in the whole Hot Tamales line.
