Tamales are a traditional Mesoamerican dish made of masa (a corn-based dough) that are steamed or boiled in a leaf wrapper. Their origin has been traced as far back as the Ancient Mayans, who would prepare them for feasts possibly as early as 1200 BCE. Although they can be made with many different fillings, they are always created with an assortment of spices, and usually, have quite a bit of kick!
The red hot tamale candy, on the other hand, was created in 1950, and it was not invented by the Mayans, nor is it fashioned from any sort of dough or boiled in leaves. However, just like its namesake, Hot Tamales definitely boast a major spicy kick! Each chewy, bite-sized piece has a piquant zest that will turn your tongue red hot (both figuratively and literally!).
There are approximately 7 pieces per pack.
