Whatever the holiday or season, you can always count on Hershey's Chocolate Kisses to be prepared. Hershey's is a basic, good tasting chocolate. I am usually not disappointed in this brand.
The Hershey's Kiss is easy to spot with it's tear drop shape, foil wrapped in a twist, and handy little pull tab. I just fill the candy dish in my dorm with Hershey's Kisses, watch the smiles appear, and the Kisses disappear.
Shown in my photos is a bag of Hershey's Milk Chocolate Kisses. This particular bag is decked out for Valentine's Day, but Hershey's changes the foil colored wrapping to suit any holiday or occasion. For autumn, for example, the Kisses are wrapped in brown, orange, and gold foil.
This bag of Kisses, purchased recently, is marked with an expiration date of ten months from now. I don't know how far out these bags are usually marked, but it's nice to know what you're getting. Well, almost.
Sometimes I find perfect, fresh Kisses under that foil wrapping. Other times, such as with this bag, I find Kisses with nicked up chocolate that just don't look or taste as good as others I have tried. Once I was unlucky enough to purchase a bag that contained Kisses with tired looking foil wrapping. When you do luck out with a perfectly fresh bag, each kiss is a real taste treat. They are smooth, moist, and yummy.
If you love to bake, like I do, try out the recipe for Peanut Blossoms on the back of the Kisses package. Peanut Blossoms are peanut butter cookies with a Hershey's Kiss plunked down in the middle.
I don't think Hershey's will be losing me as a customer any time soon. Try them. They're good!
