Hot Tamales Soft & Chewy Bites

Taste test: This version of Hot Tamales did away with the usual medicine capsule shape, instead looking like half-inch sections of braided licorice — though noticeably thicker than a typical Twizzler.

I bit in to find a definite Twizzler-like texture, with a flavor that borrowed from Hot Tamales, but with much less intensity than any of the actual Hot Tamales varieties we've reviewed. As the minor amount of hot cinnamon that was there wore off, the remaining taste was a whole lot like a Twizzler. A bit underwhelming in the Hot Tamales taste department.

Smell test: The usual intense spicy cinnamon smell of Hot Tamales. Nice.

From the package: “Fat free” ... “Fierce Cinnamon” ... “90 calories per serving/4 servings per package” ... “There's lots to love about these the delicious licorice bites – like their soft, chewy texture and oh-so-sweet taste. We've even kicked them up a notch by adding our signature Fierce Cinnamon flavor to get your taste buds jumping!” ... “Hot Tamales® and the Hot Tamales® Fire Ball Character are registered trademarks of Just Born, Inc.” ... “Candy made in the USA from domestically and globally sourced ingredients.”
