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.
