See’s Candies:
Cinnamon Lollipops

These seasonal specialties have a festive holiday cinnamon flavor that is spicy but not too hot (the brown sugar and butter mellow them out, so they’re not sizzling like Red Hots). We enjoyed stirring them in our cocoa, coffee and tea.

Choose from Crunchy Carrots, Dilly Beans,  Hot & Spicy Beans, Snappers (snap peas) and Sweet Bells (peppers). Use them in cocktails, on relish trays and in salads.
