Jelly Belly Unbearably Hot Cinnamon Bears – The Perfect Heat for Me!
If there’s one thing I’ve learned about spicy food and candy it is this: The ‘hotness’ is subjective. While I can down a box or bag of Red Hots without batting an eyelash, some people can only handle a few before their tongue ‘feels funny.’ I’m certainly no scientist, so I’m not sure what makes things that are too hot for some just fine for others, but based on experience I would say my taste buds ride somewhere in the middle. I can’t pop habanero chilis like they’re Tic Tacs, but I can find the flavor for the tingle in most moderately spicy dishes.
As for spicy cinnamon candy, I’m most definitely a fan. I never pass up the movie theater style boxes of Hot Tamales, and I’m among the first in line for cinnamon hearts come Valentine’s Day. But for all the cinnamon sweet treats I so adore, my taste buds vote Jelly Belly’s Unbearably Hot Cinnamon Bears as the spiciest. I can’t promise your taste buds will feel the same, but I have a feeling they will!
While some shops might carry Jelly Belly’s Hot Cinnamon Bears year-round, in my experience they are easiest to find close to Valentine’s Day. To be sure I have them on hand as long as possible – you know, before they hibernate for the summer – I am always sure to stock up shortly after I find the first sleuth of spicy bears! (Did you know a group of bears is called a ‘sleuth’? It’s true!)
