As someone who loves Hot Tamales, I know how important it is to know just how many of those spicy little candies you’re getting in each box.
So, I decided to open up a few boxes and count them myself!
So, how many Hot Tamales are in a box? There are approximately 70 pieces of candy in a standard, 5 oz box of Hot Tamales.
The truth is though, Just Born, who make Hot Tamales, offer these spicy candies in various different box sizes.
So let’s explore each one.
