Time to give them something fun, they'll talk about for years to come.*

Dear Hershey,

The candy cane kiss for Christmas is one of my all time favorite holiday confections. I find myself stock piling it so I can have some randomly throughout the year. Those who have tried them on my recommendation have also enjoyed them.

The Candy Corn kiss is intoxicatingly sweet - but I still like it. It's powerful flavor has already embedded itself into my memories of fall smells and tastes and I look forward to eating at least a handful this fall season.

It's amazing how you can replicate the flavor of other candy into a non-chocolate Hershey kiss. I cannot speak for any of your chocolate based kisses, in my chocolate eating days I only partook of the classic chocolate. I can, however, address one blunder on your part. The Pumpkin Spice kiss.
I have four words and a punctuation mark for you, "What were you thinking?" Do you put these products through taste tests? Did somehow this particular kind not make it through because you had a deadline?
I ran my own taste test and 100% of consumers agreed, these were a mistake. A full on corn starch assault on the taste buds. 60% stated that it made them feel like they were eating a pumpkin spice candle. 20% said that these would do...if they needed a sugar fix and there was nothing else and 80% were initially unable to speak as their faces were scrunched up in disgust.
The evil manical laugh I hear inside my head as I stare at the pumpkin on the package tells me that this was no mistake, rather a planned assualt on humanity. I am hoping that I am wrong. Please tell me that I am...and please send a shirt and a package of candy cane kisses - I know you have them already up their in your chocolate castle in Hershey, PA.
Sincerely,
Concerned Consumer

Martha - if that is my only typo then I think I'm doing good. I never point out with you use the wrong to-too. :P

Ashley - I have practically a whole bag, I'll bring you one if you really want to try :)

I've never heard of any of these things, but I agree the maniacal pumpkin on the package is disturbing and does not in anyway entice me to try this confection.

Nick wants to know why you are so crazy and I want to know why you are so awesome...

Oh and the quote is Nightmare before Christmas.

Ashley said...

Lildonbro said...

Yea, I'll bring some tonight. Who knows, maybe you'll like them :) If so, I'll bring the rest on Sunday.
