Candy Review: Hot Cinnamon Flaming Hearts Candy

Categories: Candy,Candy Recipes,Candy Reviews,Hard Candy


I used to think Atomic Fireballs were hot. Not any more. Enter Hot Cinnamon Flaming Hearts – they are truly hot. Fireballs start out slow, peak in hotness, then the rest of the ball is just mild cinnamon flavored sugar. The Flaming Hearts start out (very) hot and stay (very) hot to the very end.

I didn’t think the first one I had was all that hot really – about the same as a Fireball, essentially. The more I had, though (in the following days, not consecutively), I realized just how hot these are. I even went out and bought a Fireball to refresh my memory and compare. The hearts themselves are about the size of a quarter and about the thickness of three quarters stacked on top of each other. There is a little flame logo indented in each heart – warning you it’s hot.

The heat comes from a healthy dose of cinnamon oil and it does provide quite a kick. It’s not so hot I had to remove it from my mouth to cool off, but it is hot. I took them to work to share with my co-workers and most agreed they were quite hot, but very tasty. I found myself reaching for one each day around 2:30PM or so as an afternoon snack. Good stuff.
From their FAQ:

“How hot are they?” — The average person will think these much too hot. If regular cinnamon candies have challenged you, you will not like these. Flaming Hearts are not intended to be the hottest candy ever, but, they are certainly hotter than most.

I agree 100% with that assessment of their heat level. Interestingly enough, the company even gives away the recipe for these candies – in case you want to try and make them yourself. If you don’t want to make them, you can get these in a gift jar (as seen above), in bulk in a resealable bag, or you can even get a 4-piece sample for only $1.50. As far as I can tell, other than making them yourself, the Hot Cinnamon Flaming Hearts Candy are only available at the FlamingHotCandy website. If you know someone who loves hot candy and you need a gift for him/her, the 8oz. jar would make an excellent gift.

    We are very pleased that you like our candy. There are, however, a couple of items to amend.

    While the recipe we offer on the web site is very tried and dependable for making your own candy at home, it is not exactly the same recipe that we use for making Flaming Hearts.

    And, we do use more cinnamon oil than most, but, the heat in the candy is enhanced beyond that by two other pepper based ingredients. That raises the heat level and also adds depth to the flavor.

    Thanks for the great site here, Steve (
