I kept thinking of Jefferson Airplane's Wooden Ships ("You must try some of my purple berries...") when I was shooting and eating these because I think my fingers were turning violet. You can see than even the candy was getting cold.
Ferrara Pan's White Hot Red Hots Jelly Beans puts the same coat on a new product, and it works. That's an accomplishment that many repurposing candies can't manage.
The red hot taste is there, but it's not as annoying as some of the other hard candy which goes soft, like Life Savers Gummies or even Chewy Lemonheads.
"I been eating them for six or seven weeks now." Or could.
