Hershey's Candy Cane Kisses

It seems there is an endless stream of variations of Hershey’s Kisses nowadays, and we can add one more to the list: Candy Cane Kisses. I picked up a mini 1.12 oz package at a Walgreen’s for 49 cents about two weeks ago and promptly forgot about them until now.

The Candy Cane Kisses are mint-flavored white chocolate Kisses, with “stripes and candy bites”. Unfortunately, these made of the dreaded (to me anyway) white chocolate, so they don’t really appeal to me. They have a slight mint taste to them, and yes, there are tiny crushed up candy cane pieces in the Kisses, but the combo just doesn’t work for me.

The hint of mint, and the underlying white chocolate taste are enough to turn me off. The candy cane pieces do add an interesting twist to the usual formula, but they’re nothing special and are clearly intended to just be used as stocking stuffers. I don’t envision people going nuts over these like the Cordial Cherry Kisses. The Candy Cane Kisses are “limited edition”, so if you want to give them a try, act fast.

    Having tried these, there actually aren’t any candy cane pieces in there. It’s actually little nonpairels, those little sugar thingy’s. They are alright, but saying that they are the only ones left in my office candy dish I guess they didn’t go over too well.

    Oooh, it’s a shame they weren’t to your liking. I just LOVE them! They taste just like the Smooth ‘N Melty candies. YUMMY!

    I’m not a big candy eater, but I’m stocking up on these so that I’ll have enough to last me through the year…they are now on a very short list of my favorite candies!!!

    oh, yes, and just for the record, the cherry cordial kisses were pretty gross and are the only things left in my office candy dish!

    Just as with anything else in life, your like/dislike of the Hershey’s Candy Cane Kisses is a personal preference. For me personally, they are WONDERFUL! I am allergic to cocoa/chocolate :-( , so this delicious white confection with mint is perfect for me. Please continue to make this treat available all year long…..

    The candy cane kisses are fantastic. The only problem is mine are all gone and I can’t seem to find more. I wasn’t to sure about them until I tried one and two and three and more and more, I need more. This is the best Hershyey’s Kiss so far.

    J says:

    I’m still looking for more. Who do we talk to in order to get them. They should be available on-line year round at the very least. So get busy making them already!!

    I absolutely love Hershey’s Candy Cane Kisses, could die for them. Just need to know where I can get them now since the holidays are over. If someone knows or found a place to order more if you could let me know I would greatly appreciate it!
    Thank you so much for your help

    I bought some of the strawberry cream kisses at Target. They are now my favorite candy but cannot find them anywhere now that Valentines Day is past. Is there any store that sells them?

    I love the candy cane kisses, and I do’nt like chocolate. I have been online trying to find out how to buy them!!!

    I picked up a pack of these during the after Christmas sales out of curiousity. They’re delicious! I’m not usually a peppermint fan, but the mint in these was very subtle. Just like a commenter above noted, they taste a lot like Smooth ‘N Melty candies. Has anybody tried the new Confetti Kisses? They look kind of similar, only without the hint of mint flavoring. I wondered if they were good.

    I truly enjoy the hershey candy cane candy. There is one expression I can think of and it’s “There Great”. Last year after the holiday season ended I have to admit I was one of those that paid the over priced item just to have one last treat. Please continue to make this item yearly it adds a special warmth to you all year and keeps you in that holiday spirit. Thanks and you have a happy holiday and ofcourse a Merry Merry Christmas!

    I’ve bought them twice now and really like them. I don’t usually like white chocolate either. But it works with the mint and candy cane bits.

    I found these last year and gathered and stored enuf after last Christmas to last me through to just before Halloween (may actually still have a couple tiny bags hiding). It’s great for those of us allergic to all other chocolates, and peppermint is good for the stomach if upset (after a meal or upsets at other times). Year round availability would be great.

    Well, I am positively addicted to these candy cane kisses! I love the subtle minty smooth taste.. I have been snacking on them all day. Too bad they are limited edition. The cherry cordial ones are good, but I would prefer the candy cane kisses more. :)

    Cherry cordial kisses are divine! I’ve purchased about 6 bags in the last month. I devour them.
    I would really like to try the Candy Cane ones though, as I looooove mint.

    The candy cane kisses were fanstastic. I made two delicious desserts for the holidays. Guests asked for the recipes. Keep them on the market!!

    Actually I found out about these from my friend, she was like ‘I stop by walmart everyday to find out if they arrive for the holiday season’. So it got me wondering how good they are so I tried em today…I’m telling you it became my favorite candy. the combination of white chocolate and mint candy cane is sooo good, the after taste of mint makes you want them more and more. I’m thinking about buying them a bunch so its gonna last me long enough.

    I was SOOOO addicted to these last year that after the holidays, I told my friends to keep an eye out for them and buy a few of bags for me if they saw them at the after Christmas sales! (I had already stashed away several bags to eat throughout the year) They only lasted me until March. :( I’m gonna have to buy even more this year!

    Mindy says:

    I love the candy cane kisses! These are very addicting! I’m usually not a fan of white chocolate, but I like these alot! I think they should come out with candy cane kisses with milk chocolate. Also, the hot cocoa ones are pretty tasty!

    Brenda says:

    I was offered a bag of these at Christmas time last year, let me tell you how WONDERFUL they are. I have looked at Walmart & KMART no luck does anyone know when or what stores they are in? Peppermint & cocoa, what a combination! Happy HOLIDAYS from MT.

    Kristin says:

    These are my very favorite kisses. And I do go nuts over them. I usually try to get enough to last quite a while since you can only find them at Christmas. And they were a huge hit at my office. I can’t keep them in the candy dish, they disappear so quickly.

    kiss fan says:

    Just bought the Candy Cane Kisses at Target 2008, and somehow do not seem the same as past years. Did they change them….I remember actual ground peppermint/candy cane in them and not the red candy dots/and stripe. I remember them as being sooooooooo yummy, in 2006 , ’07, but these are not as good. Any comments, and is it my imagination that they have changed ?

    I loathe White Chocolate, and I actually rather like these. They taste like Misty Mints, and I LOVE the Misty Mint. I can’t find the Candy Cane Kisses anywhere around me though. Sad.

    I saw the candy cane kisses after Christmas, and should have bought them ! They are all sold out here in Lincoln, Ne. I usually don’t like peppermint because it is too strong, but there is something about the creamy white chocolate ,( which I don’t usually like either)when it is combined with the not too strong peppermint that is just delicious! I will buy more next year, and sooner if I can find them. There is a site where you can purchase them, but no matter HOW! much I love them, I am not willing to pay $14.00!!! even if it is for 3 10 oz. bags!!! What a rip off!!!

    connie urbauer says:

    Just a second thought, why couldn’t I make some using white almond bark, and broken pieces of peppermint candy canes?! I think I will give it a try, since I love to bake so much!
