Hershey’s Kisses. Not to be overlooked!


There are things in life that we see every day and end up taking them for granted. Or we pass them by because familiarity breeds contempt. In the case of chocolate I think we tend to focus on Belgian or Swiss fine chocolates or the day to day chocolates of Britain such as Cadbury. I know I have certainly fallen into this trap. But, as I have recently discovered, Hershey’s is not to be overlooked. Over the last year I have noticed that Hershey has been placing on the market a number of flavored kisses to quiet fanfare. Unlike the heralded presence of M&M’s, Hershey’s kisses have no sexy mascot or striking alternate colors. What they do have is a stable of unusual flavored chocolate drops that are worth more than a passing glance. What I have come across so far are Cookies ‘n’ Creme, Cherry Cordial Creme, Vanilla Yogurt Creme, Almond, Special Dark Chocolate and Caramel. They are all quite tasty. The Cookies ‘n’ Creme are my favorite with Special Dark a close second. Probably the only one that misses the mark is the Cherry Cordial Creme. That flavor just doesn’t do it for me. If you are looking for a change or the price of European chocolate is becoming more than your wallet can bear then you may want to take a look at these fine confections. They are well worth your time and investment. Jim Thomasson, Omar’s Tent
