Taste test: These snacks looked a whole lot like Hot Tamales, with similar colors and shapes, with the obvious differences being that these came in a bag and were 7-Eleven brand.
I poured some pieces into my hand and bit in to find that they had a tougher chew than Hot Tamales, still chewy but just a denser chew, with a taste that was in the same league as Hot Tamales but actually seemed like an exact match for Red Hots. The cinnamon heat was fairly intense, and it lingered in the aftertaste in a way that Hot Tamales generally don't. Pretty good.
