Hershey's Limited Edition Coffee Kisses

what a way to start '07: marc, the indian scout of NYCE, scrounged up what is perhaps the quintessential, the penultimate, the emblematic NYCE product: Hershey's ltd-ed coffee kisses. let us quantify (or is that qualify?): 1. limited edition + 2. coffee. these coffee kisses are the pinnacle in a flurry of elegant, limited-ed flavors intro'd by hershey's over the holidays (incl. dark-choc/strawberry & dark-choc raspberry). but coffee. the aroma when you open the bag bursts right out: more folger's than intelligentsia (props to chic coffee guru spinnakr) but still admirably dark & espresso-y, w/ a flavor similar to that Pocket Coffee stuff

Finally, a Hershey's product I might actually like, if I could eat it.

I've been gnawing my way through a bag of these, and they're great. Maybe the best thing is that they're so intense that I can't eat more than 2 or 3 at a time.

Pocket coffee? To accompany a person's pocket protector, perhaps?

I'm a big fan of the pocket calculator.

And I'm a huge fan of the side pocket shot.

Hershey's in general is ludicrously sweet(even their dark chocolate), but I am a coffee fanatic so I may have to give this a shot. Coffee in kiss form seems to be self-contradictory though...the sophistication of coffee with the playfulness of candy named after an gesture of affection. My mind - it boggles!

Say what you will about commercial chocolate; it's all profit to me.

Hmm...I was expecting these to come out sometime. I wonder if coffee M&M's are in the future?

Excuuuuuuuuuuuuse me, but this was the one and only Pocket Rocket.

I am obsessed with these! I made it my mission over the holidays to try all of their limited edition or interesting flavors. The hersheys kiss with mona loas are amazing, as are the caramel creme. The mocha kisses are incredibly strong scented.
