Hershey is making news, and yes it’s very very sweet. In fact, doubly sweet. Hershey just made a huge announcement earlier this week stating that they will be releasing a new product for the holiday season. Guess what it is? A super big Kiss! Yes, that’s right. The product is called the Hershey’s Kiss Deluxe and it will be twice as big as the original Kiss chocolate. And as if that wasn’t awesome enough, this new chocolate will also have a hazelnut in the centre and a chocolaty exterior of crispy rice flakes.
Adam Borden, the senior associate manager for Hershey’s Kisses, reportedly told USA Today that, ““It took 55 years just to change the colour of the foil. Then it took another 38 years to put something inside the milk chocolate. We’re getting better, but it does take us a little while to tinker with something that is iconic as a brand Milton Hershey founded himself.” It’s amazing how much work has gone into the making of this world-popular chocolate and there’s the reason why everyone loves it so much. Besides being a double delicious treat, this chocolate will come with a calorie count that’s doubled from the original Kisses, but who cares? We’re going to gobble it all, anyway!
According to the NY Daily News, the product will be sold in various stores across the country by November 5, and will be available until Valentine’s Day. So, if you’re thinking about gifting this holiday season, add a little double delight to it, and remember to stock up for yourself when you want that chocolate fix. PS. You’ll wanna save some for Valentine’s Day, or at least remember to buy a whole lot more while they’re still on the shelves!
