Taste test: This retro box contained what appeared to be original version of Hot Tamales, amid a confusing lineup of different heat levels that includes Fire and Fierce Cinnamon versions.

I ate my first piece and found it have the usual good cinnamon flavor, but it lacked any heat. As is nearly unavoidable with Hot Tamales, I ate more and more of the capsule-shaped red pieces, and it seemed like the heat levels varied quite a bit from one piece to the next, as some had a good strong kick, while others lacked any at all. Whether this was intentional or not, I have no idea, but I do know that I liked the hot pieces better.
