Unless you’ve been living under a Pop Rock, you’ve heard the pop tunes of Katy Perry — maybe on your radio or maybe your kids have been singing about “California Gurls” or “E.T.” On the cover of the latest issue of Rolling Stone, Katy Perry has donned a Hershey’s Kiss bra. I’m sure there are some folks in Pennsylvania thanking the artist for putting their chocolaty treats on the minds of tweenyboppers all over the planet.

Candy Review: Hershey’s Hugs

Categories: Candy,Candy Reviews,Chocolate Candy,Holiday Candy


What’s this? Valentine’s Day is past and I still haven’t reviewed any Valentine-type candy? Thank goodness for this big old bowl of assorted Hershey’s Kisses one of my coworkers left on the counter at work. As they say in French… YOINK!

Now, Hugs are kind of the under appreciated younger siblings of Kisses. They may not be as intimate, but that also means you can share them with a lot more people, from your mom to your best friend to that creepy wino who hangs out on the corner of 45th and Main… Oh wait, we’re talking about candy, aren’t we? Well, Hugs (the candy) may not be as well-known as Hershey’s Kisses or come in so many flavor varieties, but I like them all the same.

What’s Your Favorite Kind of Kiss?

Categories: Candy,Chocolate Candy

Heart shape with Hershey
Valentine’s Day has me thinking of Kisses.

Do you remember your first kiss? I remember mine. It was sweeter than I expected and I wanted the experience to last as long as possible. My tongue did the happy dance as I savored every melting, delicious moment. Of course, I’ve had other kisses since, but you gotta love that first, delightful kiss.

Granted, my chocolate tastes have grown over the years, but I’m still a fan of the Hershey’s Kiss. I’ve noticed that the appearance of Kisses in my Attitude Adjustments jar causes sheer glee among my coworkers. It’s one of the few treats that enjoys universal acceptance among the multitudes – even the stalwart health nuts can’t resist a good Kiss.

I’ve indulged in lots of Kisses over the years – my fellow Candy Addicts have tempted me to try all sorts of creative Kisses with their stellar reviews and trying them out is always fun. Truth be told, I like to sprinkle Special Dark Kisses into my goodie jar periodically (I claim it’s the “healthy” chocolate). I’ve even branched out into Hugs, because hey, who doesn’t enjoy a nice Hug every now and then? But, I always come back to the plain, chocolate Kiss.

What’s your favorite Kiss? Or do you enjoy a good Hug instead?

Candy Review: Hershey’s Pumpkin Spice and Raspberry Special Dark Kisses

Hershey’s Pumpkin Spice and Raspberry Dark Specials Bags
I enjoy the limited edition Hershey’s Kisses so much that I bestowed the silver medal to them on my Top 10 Best Spinoff Candy list. The varieties they release aren’t always amazing, but when they are, they are.

Lately, there haven’t been very many releases since the 100th Anniversary passed, but every now and then I see a new flavor on the market that I eagerly purchase. For Halloween, they have reissued Candy Corn Kisses (no!), Caramel Apple Kisses (I haven’t been able to find these), and Pumpkin Spice Kisses (on sale this week at Target for two dollars a bag).

Oddly enough, the same day I came across the Pumpkin Spice Kisses, I happened to spot Raspberry Special Dark Kisses at Walgreens. There was nothing Halloween or Autumnal about this bag to indicate why it was being released at this time, but one should not question gifts from the candy gods.

Candy Review: Hershey’s Marshmallow Creme Kisses

Hershey Kisses Marshmallow Creme

This guest review was written by Laura Kaspick….

Back in December 2007, Candy Addict reviewed the Chocolate Marshmallow Hershey Kisses. While the reviewer had hoped that these were going to have a marshmallow fondant center, she was disappointed to find that the Kisses were actually just solid marshmallow flavored chocolate. A solid Kiss is certainly less interesting than a filled one, but I was still intrigued and hoped to track down the limited edition offering. Unfortunately, months passed without any luck and I was certain I had missed my chance.

Imagine my excitement when half a year later I finally spotted the elusive Chocolate Marshmallow Hershey Kiss! There they were in the candy aisle of Walgreens, with the same poofy marshmallows and chocolate sauce on the packaging and the same silver and brown checkerboard patterned foil wrappers that the Chocolate Marshmallow had. But after a closer look, I realized that there was something much different about these marshmallow Hershey Kisses. These were not the same product that had escaped me for so long – instead, these were Hershey Kisses “filled with marshmallow flavored crème”! While this confirmed that I had indeed failed to find the December marshmallow version, I was stoked to try the new crème-filled variation.
