What makes Atomic Fireballs hot?

The most notable thing about these fireball candies has to be the heat factor. There is actual capsaicin added to these delicious candies. Capsaicin is an active component of hot peppers - the thing that makes them super duper spicy! Capsaicin is said to have many health benefits, some believe that it provides pain relief and reduces inflammation. So really these Atomic Fireball Candy could have some health benefits, besides being delicious!

The heat in these candies all make perfect sense when you consider the creator of Atomic Fireball. He just happens to be of Italian descent which explains why he came up with a hot, red spicy candy!

Nello Ferrara came up with these Atomic Fireballs in 1954, he is the son of Salvatore Ferrara, the founder of Ferrara Pan. Atomic Fireballs are made with a method called "hot panning". Each candy starts with one single grain of sugar that is placed in the giant panner, which is then heated over a gas flame while liquid sugar, flavour and colour are added. This process is repeated over a two week time period, increasing the size to a one-inch ball. A lot goes into these feisty little fireball candy. Each Atomic Fireball has hundreds of layers! Atomic Fireballs are approximately 7/8 in diameter.

Be bold, be daring! Be sizzling hot with Atomic Fireball!
