Brach’s Cinnamon Jelly Hearts

Brach's Cinnamon Jelly HeartsDuring Valentine’s season red and pink candies are pretty common. And the most common flavors to go with that are cherry and strawberry, so it’s nice to see a cinnamon candy for Valentines besides the red hot imperials.

I found this bag of Brach’s Cinnamon Jelly Hearts at RiteAid amongst bags of cherry Ju Ju hearts and other fruity versions. I’m a huge fan of Spearmint Leaves, so a cinnamon version (besides the cinnamon bears which are often in the generic or house brand bags) is quite a pleasure.

Cinnamon Hearts

They’re tall little hearts: one inch across and three quarters of an inch high. They’re a soft pink, both in texture and color. The smooth jelly heart is covered in granulated sugar.

They smell quite soft and sweet, like cinnamon candy. The jelly bite is pretty soft but then again Los Angeles is experiencing 100% humidity lately so there’s no worry about things getting dried out at the moment.

The cinnamon is mostly spice, not quit woodsy but a slight tingly burn from time to time. They’re chewy and comforting and the artificial coloring is light enough that I noticed less of an aftertaste than I do with Hot Tamales.

I prefer my cinnamon candies a little hotter, but I see the value in having something a little milder around from time to time. It took me about two weeks, but I ate the whole bag. I liked the shape and the price, so I would buy them again ... especially if I see them on sale after the holiday.

  1. Hi! ^ ^

    I just wanted to tell you that I stumbled on to your blog collection just now, and it’s just great!
    I love candy, even though I don’t purchase it often, but I really like how you describe every little detail and the pictures are great!
