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.
