hershey's choc truffle kiss*

Haven’t visited kisses in a while (e.g., totally, willfully, arbitrarily skipped the special ed coconut-creme kiss) so let’s do Hershey a huge freaking favor w/ this puny blog item on their dark-choc choco truffle kiss. an ooey-gooey soft-centered version of their now-year-round solid dark-choc kiss. Dark choc wuz already a blooming flavor trend, but then a study decreed that its antioxidants make dark choc "good for you", and now it's off the hook, not so diff from the oat bran craze in the 90s. other pertinent examples: 1. How bout the fact that dark-choc M&Ms just got bumped up to the year-round team? 2. How bout carnation adding a new dark choc flavor to its instant-breakfast mix, which was a totally cool new product if you happened to be growing up in new England in the 70s.

*no links, sorry, back in the groove, blah blah blah

Great news re dark chocolate. I've always picked Mounds over Almond Joy, even as a kid.

Boy, that oat bran craze was just wild, wasn't it? I still get chills just thinking about it. Heady times, man.

I could use a little dark chocolat after my recent run-in with Baby Luv. (My pet kinkajou, silly!) It was 3 a.m. and I was bleeding! Fortunately my publicist is there to do things for me like take me to the hospital.

Feel free to send me some of that dark chocolate!!! (Be sure to insert one of those dry-ice thingies so the chocolate doesn't melt.) Muchas gracias! (That's Spanish.)

My sister got me a package of these during her trip to Chicago, along with a package for Hershey's Nuggets Truffles. They were tasty. However, I'm really curious about the Dark Chocolate Carnation, because my breakfasts aren't as dark as my mood every morning.

Dean,
I'm not much into health food, I am into champagne.

Champagne is just another name for grape juice and air.

Good to see you demonstrating your keen sophistication about food and drink, Dean.

i mean, no, coconut is not my FAVORITE flavor

and yes, i'd almost rather eat toasted maggots than coconut

let's just say, i avoid coconut. i abstain from coconut. i eschew coconut.

What about coconut milk? Surely, you don't eschew Thai curries like panang.

That toasted maggot dish does sound interesting, though. What type of sauce do you put on that?

Some bloggers will do anything to drive a 2-day post count up to 20, eh?!

Eschew? Bless you!
