Happy Halloween 1st everyone! September marks the start of my favorite holiday, HALLOWEEN! Is Halloween even going to happen this year? Can I use a t-shirt cannon and launch candy at unsuspecting trick-or-treaters from a “safe” distance? Is that just a me fantasy? A handful of tasty treats are out this year such as the Witch’s Brew Kit Kats, the Reese’s Franken-cup and these to name a few. (Stay tuned to see reviews of those, because I have totally eaten them!)
Hershey’s Kisses are not my first choice when it comes to filling my candy dish (that I have since given up since working from home for the last year). I typically only ever get them in my Christmas stocking from “Santa” and occasionally in one of those mixed candy bags.
I’ll be honest, upon first glace (and taste) I did not realize that they had strawberry filling. My hand most likely covered the small tucked in graphic on the corner of the bag that said that they were filled with a strawberry creme. Oops!
The outside is your classic Hershey’s milk chocolate. The inside is a super sweet gooey inside similar to a Cadbury egg. Admittedly I ate a couple the other day but didn’t even realize that the creme was flavored because is in my opinion very faint compared to the chocolate. The strawberry was sweet and didn’t taste overly artificial, the creme itself is more sugary sweet than anything. One great thing is that the very red creme doesn’t stain your mouth, though I am sure it would definitely stain your clothes, so these are best enjoyed in one bite.
Overall, these are a nice twist to a classic. If you are looking for something festive, but not overly polarizing for your candy dish, these might be for you. Just don’t put them in your pocket for later or you’ll have a gooey mess!
