Pumpkin Spice and Candy Corn Hershey Kisses!






I am writing a blog dedicated to healthy eating.....so why am I posting about Hershey's Kisses? Well, I have two answers: 1) We all have our vices! and 2) All things in moderation! I love the smells, tastes, and sights of Fall! I am not much of a candy person, so I have no trouble resisting the aisles of Halloween Candy. However, when the Candy Corn Kisses hit the shelves last year, I couldn't resist. When I saw them and their new friend, Pumpkin Spice Kisses, I knew I had to grab them both and start the Fall season!!!






The Candy Corn Kisses look like their namesake with stacked levels of yellow, orange, and white. They have a buttery sweet taste. They are somewhat reminiscent of candy corn, but I have to say they taste more like buttercream icing! I love them.


I didn't know what to expect when opening the Pumpkin Spice Kisses. I wasn't sure if there would be chocolate involved or not. Upon opening the wrapper, I discovered that they were a light orange color. They are much softer than any other Hershey Kiss I have had. You almost have to be careful not to smoosh them. I was a little hesitant about my first taste, but I was pleasantly surprised. My taste buds were intrigued by the creamy pumpkin spice flavor. The cinnamon, the nutmeg, the pumpkin...it is all there in this creamy nugget of yumminess! It looks like it has a creamy center, but the taste is the same throughout. Hmmmm...the recipes that could be concocted with these kisses. I can definitely see them topping cookies and cupcakes. The Pumpkin Spice Kisses bag had a cheesecake recipe on the back.



I wonder what new flavors will come out at Christmas. I love their candy cane Kisses with the white chocolate and nonpareils. Maybe they will do Egg Nog or Gingerbread.

WHOA! pumpkin spice kisses?! sheesh, the things they come up with these days! Those sound awesome!!!! I can't wait to get my hands on one!! What do you think will be next? Egg nog kisses? Maybe they'd do something more regular like strawberry kisses. Ugh I can't stand the cherry ones. My fav are the caramel and the hugs with white choc. And I probably would just ditch the candy corn...I don't care for candy corn in general.

ANYWHO...haha I'm such a rambler! Thanks for the review Meg!!!

Reeni said...

Yum!!! The Pumpkin spice kisses have my mouth watering and my head spinning with ideas on what to do with them. Gingerbread kisses would be divine!! I love the spicy flavored ones.

VeggieGirl said...

Hershey's Kisses always come in such fun, innovative flavors - those new ones are too cool!! :0)

chandra said...

I just tried the candy corn one last week, but I wasn't a huge fan... but I do LOVE the candy cane ones, I can't wait for those to come back!!

Holly said...

I am running out to buy some today...YEA! Thanks for the heads up; anything that tastes like fall ranks high on my list of favorite tastes.

Those kisses look EVIL - absolutely evil. And I will be looking for them at the grocery store - and probably eating way too many afterward. Hoping they don't have HFCS...

sportsnutritionliving said...

Ohh I would def love the pumpkin spice ones... what are the nutritionals like? And I would LOVE to have egg nog ones too!

Meg said...

Sports- The nutritionals are similar to all the other kisses, but I don't have it in front of me right now. Not the best things in the world for you...that is why I treat myself to one now and then. I think in general, Kisses have like 25-35 calories a pieces and about 1-2 grams of fat a piece.

eatingbender said...

Um, HOW DID I NOT KNOW ABOUT THIS?! I would snag all of those in a heartbeat! I can't believe I've never seen any of these before - thank you SO SO much for dedicating a post to them. As you can see from my maniacal excitement, I will definitely be heading to the grocery store TOMORROW!

I vote egg nog kisses!! YUM.
