'Tis the season of peace and love, and the best way to spread love is with a kiss. Due to all those winter germs teeming in the air, maybe the best way to kiss is through Hershey's.
In fact, if Mr. Hershey were still alive, he would be the first one I'd shove under the mistletoe. Why? Because he invented the Candy Cane Kiss, my new love. After we reviewed the Pumpkin Spice Kiss around Halloween, even I, a pumpkin devotee, found the "white chocolate" kiss a touch cloying. I could see myself getting over Pumpkin Spice pretty quickly.
Since Candy Cane Kiss is also "white chocolate," I had my doubts. But he proved himself; The peppermint cuts the sweetness, the nonpareil candy bits add a perfect bite, and he stands swathed in a handsome red-and-white-striped ensemble. And so I melt faster than Candy Cane Kiss does.
What do you think of the Candy Cane Kiss? Have you tried the other winter flavors, Hot Cocoa and Mint Truffle?
