Hello and good day:
As "Tbird" said..."Brown or tan on the tip near the electrode is normal, browning on the porcelain near the hex usually comes with age and mileage"
It is my opinion that the person you bought the Vehicle from has lied to you about the "New Plugs".
Do you have a CEL..(check engine light) on??..This hesitation in your acceleration could be from a number of things.
From a Bad Fuel Filter to a VSS..(Vechicle Speed Sensor)...or a Clogged Air Filter to a Clogged Fuel Injector.
One more thing...You also could have a bad Coil Pack..causing a Misfire on one or more cylinders.
Good luck and good repairing.
