Hershey Special Dark Coffee Kisses

What’s not to love about a Hershey’s Kiss? It’s such a perfect little morsel of chocolatey goodness. I’d have to say the only problem I have with them is having enough patience to methodically unwrap each of the little guys when I am just anxious to shove a whole handful into my mouth. Well, I guess I’m burning half a calorie unwrapping, right?

Hershey’s has been coming out with a lot of limited edition flavors of Kisses lately like the Candy Addict favorite Cherry Cordial Kisses, Special Dark Strawberry Kisses, and even Candy Cane Kisses. Recently, I was lucky enough to find Hershey’s Special Dark Coffee Kisses. I love coffee, and I love coffee-flavored chocolate, so I had high hopes for these nuggets!

I think my hopes were a little too high. These Kisses aren’t bad, but they aren’t all that great, either. I’ve had the same bag for several weeks now, which is telling–if I really liked them, they would have been gone in a couple of days! The coffee flavor is sort of a sweet, syrupy coffee flavor, reminiscent of an artificial coffee flavoring. The coffee flavor, coupled with the dark chocolate, leaves a slight, somewhat sickly sweet aftertaste. I think I’ll stick with the regular Kisses and maybe try the peanut butter ones and, yes, I really need to try the Cherry Cordial Kisses to be a true Candy Addict, don’t I?

    These sound like the bite-size version of a Hershey’s limited edition espresso-flavored Special Dark that I had last year. I, too, had such high hopes (being a lover of coffee-flavored chocolate), but that fakety-fake coffee taste just mucks up the whole affair. Too bad.

    In a slightly related topic I found a bag of the Chocolate Truffle kisses at my local Walmart and I do believe I have a new favorite candy. The chocolate is really smooth and creamy and unlike every other truffle I’v had that has a coating, you can’t remove the coating from the truffle. Even better is there is no bitterness at all from the dark chocolate coating. You guys definately need to grab a bag and review these.

    I’m surprised you guys don’t like this version of kisses! My coworker has some on her desk and I’m always sneaking a few during the day! I like the bitter taste of the dark chocolate mixed with the coffee…it’s very soothing.

    OMG! My family absolutely loves these, and I do drink my coffee with sweetener and cream! However, I also love the chocolate covered espresso beans, and these have that same really dark flavor.

    Our problem is that we can’t find them here in the Dallas, Texas area – any ideas???
