I usually buy the carolina reaper pebbles for a challenge I do for people to earn my patch in my running club...but I tried these and people seemed to think they are hotter. I actually don't think they are AS hot but I can't stop eating them. They are SO GOOD. They are pretty hot but if you like spicy stuff these are no big deal. Also watermelon is my favorite jolly rancher so I was really excited to have these in watermelon. YUM.
