Looking for a little heat this Valentine’s Day? Peeps is ready to spice up the special occasion.

The iconic candy brand just rolled out a new flavor of marshmallow chicks ahead of the holiday: Hot Tamales Fierce Cinnamon.

Don’t be fooled by the adorable candy chicks — these gooey guys are spicy. The red-colored treats combine the spicy cinnamon flavor of Hot Tamales chewy candies with the sweetness of a Peeps marshmallow.

According to a Peeps representative, each chick is 27 calories and the marshmallows are both fat-free and gluten-free.
