I have a special place in my
heart tastebuds for Atomic Fireballs. When I was a kid I would buy them by the box (160 in a box for $3.20). So, when I saw the new Chewy Atomic Fireballs at the All Candy Expo, I nearly did a backflip. Could chewy Fireballs be as good (or dare I say, better) than the Atomic Fireballs I have grown to know and love?
The Chewy Atomic Fireballs come in small 1 oz. boxes like Lemonheads do (and they now make Chewy Lemonheads too – review on the way) and retail for $0.25. The box is red and colorful and even has a small warning label that says “Caution: Extreme Heat!” The Chewy Fireballs themselves are about the size of a Lemonhead. They’re also exactly like jellybeans in that they have a sugary/grainy outer coating around a jelly-like ball.
Chewy Fireballs are nice and hot in the Atomic Fireball way – it’s a cinnamon heat in a non-cinnamon sort of way. They are the kind of hot your little sister can’t handle, but you love. They’re good. If you like the original Atomic Fireballs (or any cinnamon-hot candy really), I think you’ll like them. I do.
