You can't SAY that if it's not really true

In fact it's quite the opposite and a rather big tease. "Now with MORE KICK" when really there is LESS kick. I'm a chocolate freak by nature but my favorite candy in the whole world is Hot Tamales "cinnamon-charged candy." But then they had to go messin' with a good thing, a PERFECT thing. We're they receiving a lot of complaints?? We're people asking for this?? It was just the right amount of fire, I'd always have to eat 2 at a time and it would almost be too much but I'd chew my way through it. But now since they added all this kick, I could stuff the whole box in my mouth waiting for the need to stop chewing and grab a drink but it never comes. They are just so...mild now. And whenever I go to buy them I search through all the boxes and every now and then I get lucky and find an old stash of the original formula but I wasn't so lucky this time. It's just not.the.same.

That will always be my favorite Valentine day memory, the day Bryan gave me the most beautiful, loving, thoughtful gift. I come in and there with my card were two 10 lb bags of Hot Tamales, all for me. THAT'S 20 POUNDS OF HOT TAMALES or otherwise known as sweet Heaven. It was 2 months before our wedding when I was trying to eat right to stay in my dress but it didn't matter. I was no longer able to sleep from being jacked up on Tamale sugar, I thought I had developed TMJ or some other painful jaw disease when I realized it was from the non-stop tamale chewing. I could feel my teeth rotting out of my mouth but none of that mattered. It was just me and my Hot Tamales and the good ol' fashioned tamale recipe.

When I was doing the weight watchers thing I figured out that 7 HT was 1 point. So I'd buy a box and parcel out 7 of the little things and I would savor those 7 little bastards. Then I'd tape the freaking box closed until the next day... or next hour... or whatever.

They truly are going to hell for changing up the recipe.

Yes, yes I do. if there were a perfect candy, that would be it. I have not had this "new recipe" that you speak of, but they have these "fiery ones" that rock. They are hotter and ultimately more delicious.
