These have to be the cutest named chocolates ever.
I first discovered Hersheys when I was a kid and we used to go on holiday to America, we would always come back with loads of Hersheys chocolate including kisses and clothes from Gap! I think Hersheys originated in the Pennsylvania, but it is the most famous chocolate in the States I would say.
These are not widely available in the UK but there are a couple of places that sell them. Selfridges in the Bull Ring do have a lot of Hersheys products, and also Harvey Nicholls in the Mail Box definitely sell them. There is also a website called American Soda, which sells a lot of American products and ships them to the UK and charges delivery depending on weight, I have used this site a couple of times for gifts for people and it's really great. (My brother has an obsession with the twizzlers liquorice so I always get that from there).
A hersheys kiss is basically a lump of hersheys chocolate in a little foil wrapper with a paper tab that unwraps it. The chocolate is really delicious and creamy. It tastes completely different to cadburys or nestle. You can get bags of about 150g and they do range in price depending on where you buy them from, but I would say a general rule is about £5.00 a bag.
There are loads of different varieties of the Hersheys Kiss, you can get milk chocolate, dark chocolate, caramel, and I think there is even one with cookie bits in it, they are all really tasty. I think they also do a hersheys hug too, but I'm not sure what it is.
I love these little chocolates and as they are not the easiest to get hold of they are a great gift for people, for something a bit different. Really worth a try, they are quite addictive.
Summary: A great little product, ideal for gifts.
