Hershey's Kisses Limited Edition Cherry Creme

It's a really sad story. These were the first limited edition kisses that I discovered and immediately went into an overdrive of consumption. The liquid cherry center is the perfect consistency, not like the more frosting-like fillers in other limited edition flavors like coconut or peanut butter. The cherry flavor doesn't have that cough syrup undertone that cherry sometimes carries in otherwise delicious candies. In fact, the cherry flavor somewhat resembles those wonderful Cella's Chocolate Covered Cherries that you can buy at the grocery store checkout. Sadly, I ate far too many. I experimented with freezing them (delightful!), melting them and pouring them over ice cream (not aesthetically pleasing but good), and the like. I recently tried to eat one and was repulsed by the sweet. Burnout has finally occurred and it's so disappointing that something once beloved now tastes so wrong. I still recommend them, just use some restraint!

Score: 4
