Candy cane kisses

I'm fascinated with all the unusual flavors of Hershey's Kisses you can now buy. What took them so long? For years they only had regular milk chocolate (still the best, in my opinion). I would have liked to have been at the meeting where some bright young thing said "What if...we tried other flavors?" He/she was probably shot down at first by some stuffy suit, then later proved right.

I love the cherry-cordial ones and the chocolate-almond ones, but I'm not so high on the white-chocolate ones. I have yet to try this candy-cane flavor, which apparently has a minty flavor and little crunchy bits.

The candy cane flavor is the best Hershey Kiss ever made, in my opinion. You must try it!

My boss brought in a bag of the cherry kisses and I ate about 2/3rds in one day. Delicious, but gave me a major sugar rush!

Try making peanut blossoms with the caramel filled chocolate ones. Pure heaven!

We tried the candy corn flavored kisses that were available for halloween this year. They were waaaayyy too fake sugary sweet (kind of like the white chocolate ones) so you couldn't eat more than 1 at a time. Thank god, because B. and I could plop down and eat an entire bag of the milk choco or caramel-filled kind.

Oh, I LOVELOVELOVE the candy cane kisses, which surprised me, because I do not like white chocolate, normally.

Now I have to go buy a bag!

Oh! The white chocolate candy cane ones are the BEST! And try dropping one into a cup of hot chocolate. Bliss!

To me, the candy cane kisses taste exactly like those pastel kiss-shaped frosting mint gobs I shovel into my mouth by the handful at weddings -- down to the crunchy finish. Those and the peanut butter ones are my faves.

You must try the Candy Cane kisses... they're like buttercream mints, but better. Truly addictive!

I just bought the hot cocoa flavored kisses. They are amazing! Just like drinking a cup of hot chocaolate.

While I'm jealous of many of these, Red Bean Paste doesn't sound or even look all that, you know, edible. But I could be wrong.
