Mike and Ike’s and Hot Tamales candy bring you their Valentine’s Day varieties that are the perfect candy to share with your loved ones. The Mike and Ike Passion Mix includes flavors Paradise Punch, Strawberry, Grape and Cherry. Hot Tamales Cinnamon Candy are available with special Valentine’s Day graphics and the box comes with a tag integrated into the box, ready for gifting. My family loves Mike and Ikes and Hot Tamales so they were ecstatic when I opened the box and showed them what we had. The Paradise Punch flavor of Mike and Ike’s is amazing and you cannot go wrong with good ‘ol classic cherry. For those who like things a little spicier, Hot Tamales will satisfy your sweet tooth with a kick.
