Review: Peeps Hot Tamales Marshmallow Flavor!

Review: Peeps Hot Tamales Marshmallow Flavor!

I was excited to see Peeps Hot Tamales Marshmallow flavor!

Hot Tamales was one of my favorite candies when I was a little kid. I’ve always had a love for cinnamon flavored sweets. Naturally I had to try these.

Hot Tamales

Hot Tamales is a jelly bean like candy with a “spicy” cinnamon flavor. Surprisingly, the company Just Born Quality Confections that makes Hot Tamales is the same company that makes Peeps, Mike & Ike, and Goldenberg’s Peanut Chews.

I loved how these Peeps tasted. The flavor was exactly like the Hot Tamales. The only issue I had was that the flavor wasn’t as strong.

If you never tried the Hot Tamales candy, they taste like spicy cinnamon. If you’ve ever added too much cinnamon to something, you probably learned that cinnamon has a natural subtle spicy kick. After licking all the sugar off, the marshmallow by itself is sweet.


I got these at Woodman’s Market.

Answer: Yes.

Worth Trying?: At least once.

I loved these and want to buy them again. I only wish the Hot Tamales or cinnamon flavor was stronger. Overall, I really enjoyed these Peeps and would recommend them to anyone who loves cinnamon. These would go great with hot cocoa or chai tea.
