I was in Wal-Mart last night shopping for a new Christmas tree stand and trying to find some Gobstoppers candy canes (didn’t find any), and I finally found some Hershey’s Kissables in the wild. At the “Everyday Low Price” of $0.48, I couldn’t resist, so I bought a bag. For those that don’t know, Kissables are essentially candy-coated miniature Hershey’s Kisses – they look like candy-coated chocolate chips. They come in an assortment of 5 bright colors: yellow, orange, red, green, and blue – very similar to M&Ms.
The Kissables were really good – the only thing I found wrong was they were gone too soon (but that’s probably because I was sharing them with my daughter). I think the chocolate to candy-coating ratio is a bit higher than M&Ms (the Kissables have more chocolate) and I think that’s what really does it for me. Regular size M&M packs are 1.69oz and the Kissables are 1.5oz, so you actually get just a bit more candy with M&Ms, but if I had $0.50 to burn and M&M’s and Kissables were side-by-side, I’d go with the Kissables.
