Retro Candy Since the 1950's

Sweet Memories for Candy Lovers!

Not for the faint of heart! These retro candies are reserved for those who want some spice in their lives, and their taste buds! Atomic Fireball is a hard, round, spicy candy much like a jawbreaker. They have a hot strong cinnamon flavour that slowly mellows into pure sweetness as it dissolves. If you are passionate, fiery and fierce, Atomic Fireball's are definitely for you!
The most notable thing about these Retro Candies has to be the heat factor. There is actual capsaicin added to these delicious candies. Capsaicin is also found in hot peppers and is the compound in them that actually makes them hot! 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 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 candies, each Atomic Fireball has hundreds of layers!

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