When I first heard about the pumpkin spice Hershey's Kisses, I didn't know what to expect. Would there be chocolate? A pumpkin center? A pumpkin shell?

There's no chocolate involved. A cinnamony creme center. And yes, a pumpkin shell.

I've had the pumpkin muffins, pumpkin beer, pumpkin ravioli, pumpkin soup, pumpkin ice cream, and pumpkin candles lit in my room. It was only a matter of time before the world threw another pumpkin thing at me, and I approved.

They're good, though a little sweet for my taste (white chocolate sweet). In fact, they're probably just white chocolate with pumpkin flavoring. You don't need more than a few, which is good since seven pumpkin Kisses have thirteen grams of fat. Nothing pumpkin has ever disappointed me, including these, but one thing bothered me: no signs of pumpkin anything on the ingredient list.

Available at Target.
