Cherry Cordial Hersheys Kiss

Yesterday I had one Limited Edition Hershey’s Cherry Cordial Kiss and it was really good (thanks, Hope!). It was sort of like the caramel-filled kisses, but the inside was filled with a thick cherry-flavored filling. I was going to post about it here and show pics and a link to the site, but there is no mention of these that I can find anywhere on the Hershey’s site (or on the internet or that matter). Are these being test marketed only in select markets (I’m in NC) so they don’t mention them on their website anywhere?

I looked around on the Hershey’s website for a while and could not find a general question email address. They do have a toll-free number but it’s only available 9-4, M-F. I might have to call them up and ask them about the Cherry Kisses on Monday. I’ll update you on Monday if I find out anything. Has anyone else across the country seen/tried these Cherry Kisses? My sister Bonnie snapped the above picture of this elusive candy.

UPDATE: I just created an online petition asking Hershey’s to keep the Cherry Kisses around all year. If you like them, go sign it! Thanks to a reader named Karma for the idea! Read my post about the petition.

    I actually saw a piece on limited edition candy on 20/20 (I think) a few months ago. It said that they are going to be limited edition release from November to early February only. So maybe you’re in a test market, or they rolled them out early. I believe they specifically said that they’ll be gone before Valentine’s Day. So..stock up. I have been looking for them, but haven’t come across any yet.

    RESPONSE: Thanks for the info! I like your site!

    RESPONSE: I only had that one, but I am longing for more. I need to go on the hunt for them to get another bag or ten. –The Candy Kid

    I just purchased (10/16/05) a large bag of the cherry kisses from Sam’s Club in Orange County, CA…if that helps anyone find them! I would assume other Sam’s Clubs might be carrying them! I hope they stick around for a while…they are sooo good!!

    All I can say about then is OMG! I only had one and I NEED more! I am also an the elusive path to find more. The co-worker who had them said that she purchased them at a Sam’s Club in Austin, Texas. However I live at minimum of an hour away from Austin, with gas prices the way they are I am having hard time convincing myself that it is worth the drive all the way in for them. Plus what happens if I got there and they were all gone! YIKES!!! Found them on the Sam’s online page but wouldn’t you know it states “No home delivery” How dare them!

    So, sounds like Sam’s Club is the place. I’ve got to make a run and see if I can find them too somewhere.

    Here in Philadelphia, I found them (cherry kisses) in two CVS stores. I think they are the best of all the kisses so far, but I’m still waiting for the solid white chocolate kiss. That will be the ultimate !

    RESPONSE: Personally, I never really liked white chocolate, but I don’t think I have ever had GOOD white chocolate. As for the cherry kisses, I agree – they are the best I have had….so far. –The Candy kid

    Martha Munson says:

    I found them at B.J.’s in Columbia (MD)about a month ago, but when I went back last weekend to buy more to mail to a niece who can’t find them, they were all gone! They are sooo good!

    Karma says:

    They are really good, I hope they will decide to keep them on the shelves permanently. Thier like a Chocolate Covered Cherry without the cherry inside. With the great taste of Hershey’s chocolate. I FOUND A WEBPAGE SELLING bags of them for anyone who hasn’t found them at SAM’s

    hope this helps, we should get a petition started to keep them around. someone hook it up

    RESPONSE: Good find! I started the petition just like you suggested. Go here to sign it: –The Candy Kid

    i found the cherry cordial’s at target in marquette, mi. at christmas time and i loved them. i use to eat the chocolate covered cherries with the cream and the liquid filled cella’s and i have dentures and they would make me gag so i had to give them up with great disappointment. when i ate the hersey cherry cordial, i was thrilled when i didn’t gag cause of my dentures. please keep them going they are great. thanks.

    RESPONSE: Too much information :)

    Debbie D says:

    These have been spotted at Sam’s Clubs in two states (that I am aware of). North Carolina and Maine. The 36 oz bags are going for around $12 plus shipping on E-bay. People must really love ‘em. I know I do!

    Free Petition says:

    I like your blog and your idea for a chocolate Kisses petition.

    You should know that the next time you want to create a petition you should go to XXXXXXXX because it allows you to create CUSTOM petitions…
    1) that look like your blog or site; and
    2) do NOT have advertising on your petition

    Just some friendly advice.

    RESPONSE: Actually, next time I’ll just host it myself on my own site. But thanks anyway.

    Erin E. says:

    Another spotting–this time at a CVS in Chapel Hill, NC!!!

    They are now 2 bags for $5–get ‘em while they’re still around!!!

    Laura Peck says:

    I was at Sam’s Club yesterday and they have the 38.5 oz. bag for $6.83. What a great price. I saw on line you can order it for $19.99, that’s just too much. They are so good, I hope Hershey decides to keep them around all year. not just at Christmas time. I’ve looked everywhere else and nobody carries them right now.

    I was having a chocolate craving last week and decided to dig into my kids candy stash. They still have some left over from Halloween and Christmas. I grabbed a Hershey’s Kiss and popped it into my mouth and OH MY GOD!!!!!! What a treat, it tasted like cherry. I checked the little paper and it said cherry. I have been looking since that day to try and find more but to no avail. I checked the Hershey’s website and if you go under products by alphabet they will have the cherry cordials there and you can order them. I believe it $5.95 for a tin of these candies. But I want some now and wish I could find some at a store. I have yet to check out Walgreen’s, Super D’s and Rite Aid. Sometimes they will have things like that because of Valentine’s Day.

    RESPONSE: Yep you’re right – here’s the link.

    Rita says:

    I found them at Sam’s Club in Colorado. About $7 for a 38.5 oz bag. They’re wonderful!!!! Hope Hershey’s figures out what a goldmine these are. Just look at what prices eBay is getting…~$16/bag!!! If Hershey’s wants to boost it’s profits (instead of someone else’s), it has got to make these avlb full-time.

    Heather says:

    I just bought (2) bags of 38.5 oz bags for $15/a piece. What can I say, I’m shameless! These are the best kisses that I have ever had, I really hope that Hershey starts making them yearround. I attempted to sign the online petition, but my computer froze midway thru the process. How is Hershey viewing the petition? Just curious….
