Fiery Cinnamon Marshmallows

The Hot Tamales-Flavored Peeps Share the Flavor of a Spicy Candy

— February 18, 2020 — Lifestyle
Over the years, Peeps marshmallows have been introduced in a variety of sweet flavors like pumpkin, pancake, maple brown sugar and decadent dark chocolate, and this spring the brand is introducing Hot Tamales Flavored Peeps. These new flavored marshmallows are based on the iconic spicy cinnamon taste of Hot Tamales candies and tout a "Fierce Cinnamon" flavor.

As well as being introduced to a novel flavor experience, consumers will also notice that the marshmallow treats also boast a rich red color that deviates from the brand's usual pastel scheme. Fans of Hot Tamales, the intense chewy cinnamon-flavored candies, will be drawn to try these Peeps for a different take on a familiar food experience. These boxes of flavored marshmallows contain 10 fiery treats that are exclusive to Kroger store chains.
