Hot Week: Mason’s HOT Cinnamon DOTS from the 80’s!

CC_Hot Dots TITLE PLATEAs we hit day four of our Cinnamon Hot Week, it’s time to share another hot flavor of a classic brand you’ve probably never heard of:  Mason’s Hot Cinnamon DOTS!

Over the decades, DOTS have received a number of notable flavor extensions.  The last few years have given us a trio of my favorites in Halloween DOTS.  But what is probably the tastiest DOTS extension I’ve ever turned up would have to be Mason’s Hot Cinnamon DOTS.

As far as my research has revealed, Hot Cinnamon DOTS were only around for a short time in the mid-1980’s.  The box design for Hot DOTS is striking in that it’s largely white with the strong graphic DOTS logo all in red.  Here it is:

Tootsie Roll Industries - Mason HOT Cinnamon DOTS - 6 1/2 oz candy box - 1980's

Tootsie Roll Industries – Mason HOT Cinnamon DOTS – 6 1/2 oz candy box – 1980’s

Here’s a standard DOTS box from the same era, for comparison:

Tootsie Roll Industries - Mason DOTS - 6 1/2 oz candy box - 1980's

Tootsie Roll Industries – Mason DOTS – 6 1/2 oz candy box – 1980’s

And without any other information to share, that’s all I’ve got to say about Hot Cinnamon DOTS and that’s everything for today’s post.  Drop back by tomorrow for more Hot Week fun.  See you next time!
