Hot Tamales Cinnamon Flavored Cotton Candy is a great idea that twirls one of my favorite childhood candies into spicy spun sugar. Despite an initial burst of something too strong, it's perfectly sweet and peppery.
The flavors perk up when the tufts melt in your mouth and turn into a melty crunch. I love how the familiar cinnamon sting follows the sugar residue.
The pink clouds of spiced cinnamon are addictive with 37 sugars in half a bag if you're counting. It's a pretty close Hot Tamales approximation and should please the red hot, red dollar, and atomic fire ball crowd.
Bonus: My almost twenty something cousin and Dish taste tester said "i wish I could like this multiple times" when I posted the photo on Facebook.
