Hershey's cherry cordial kisses

Action on the kiss front. Two new flavors for this winter: one w/ PB, which appears to be a permanent (not limited) flavor, and what might be the best Hershey’s kiss of all time, cherry kisses, filled w/ cherry cordial crème, i.e. the goo in those choc-cov cherries but minus the cherry. Whaddo you think, does this not spell large? Or is it maybe a girl thing. Haven’t actually seen cherry kisses in tx yet; but they were spotted in NC where they got candy addict* so fired up, he started an online petition. Personally, I think there’s enough kiss spinoffs already. And cherry seems distinctly Xmas-y. But maybe that tune'll change after tasting them.

Well since the only HK variation I like is the dark and since cherry and PB are the two best flavors to go with chocolate (other than coffee, are you listening Hershey?) this sounds like good news ta me.

and it would appear that the cherry ones made their first emergence in your neck of the woods!

Cherry Cordial tastes like cough syrup!

I like peanut butter, but what's the point of PB kisses when you already have the mini cups? Is there any difference?

I won that trophy for getting the most violently ill at spaghetti warehouse. I earned that thing, let me tell you.

I vote for making them available for limited times. Doesn't that make them so much more appealing? Like the Cadbury mini-eggs you can only get at Easter time? Or the McRib sandwich, (which everyone but me seems to think is the best thing ever invented.)
Anticipation makes everything so much sweeter.

clairevoyant has it exactly right. we don't all need every flavor every day of the year. at the beginning of the summer, it's fun to anticipate fresh cherries. and so when Xmas comes, that's the time when cherry cordials are in season.

this just in, news alert, hello everybody pay attention to me, i found them at super-target. my my they're sweet. very "almond extract" in flavor. but good. the thing i noticed was how relatively thin the outer layer of choc, like a choc shell. don't you think of a kiss as a solid hunk o' chocolate? not this time. very fragile

i'm glad these please that candy addict guy. but i don't think i'd like them enough to want them year-round

tg: more deadlines, but i'm surprised how many guys respond to the choc-cherry thing. so many years ago I can't remember how it started, i always included a box of chocolate=covered cherries with my mom's christmas gift. since my mom died, my sister always gives me a box! did my mom really like them? i don't mostly, the filling is confectioners sugar sweet. i eat them for sweet memories. so thank you. ps: if i can find those kisses, going to give my sister some this year, maybe my brothers, too, since it almost seems like a guy thing
