Peeps - Hot Tamales Fierce Cinnamon (GB Gifts) By @Cinabar

Peeps - Hot Tamales Fierce Cinnamon

Hot Tamales aren’t common sweets in the UK, you can get them in the import shops and they are fiery cinnamon hard boiled sweets. I like them but truth be told they take warming spice and throw an initial flame at it that even this cinnamon lover finds a bit over the top. Peeps also are usually also only found in the import shops and consist of marshmallow shapes (usually chicks) and often seasonally flavoured. These Peeps Hot Tamales Fierce Cinnamon are a combination of both of those products and are presented as bright red marshmallow chicks. They certainly do look fierce, in colour at least.

The Peeps Hot Tamales Fierce Cinnamon are stuck together in two rows of five and I plucked one off. I cautiously tasted a bit and found the cinnamon really pleasant. This might mean that Hot Tamales fans may think these mallows are too mild and certainly aren’t the promised ‘Fierce Cinnamon’. They are actually a nice warming sweet cinnamon in a cute marshmallow chick form, which I loved. These are a super tasty Friday night treat. I have a burning desire to float one on a hot chocolate too for that ultimate end of week comfort. Remember people my mantra; cinnamon, it isn’t just for Christmas.

Hey! You stole my line!

Having had the three alarm hot tamales jellybeans a few years ago and then trying a revised version a few years later, I think they have added chilli spice as well to the new recipe.
The older version was really warm but not in the same way.
