Valentine's Edition: Hershey's Chocolate Truffle Kisses


Today we must ponder a substantial question: is it possible to improve on a classic? Usually when it comes to limited edition flavor candies like Hershey's Kisses or m&m's the answer is a resounding "No!" I love to sample new flavors of classic candies but rarely does the "flavor shot" improve on the classic- instead it simply gives the consumer some sense of variety and adventure. That said, these Hershey's Chocolate Truffle Kisses may actually qualify as more delicious than traditional Kisses. Back in 2009 I reviewed a limited edition version of Chocolate Truffle Kisses and found them delightful (read review here). That said, the center was a bit firm and I don't think that Hershey's had reached the level of "sublime" in the recipe yet and I haven't seen them on the market again until now. For Valentine's Day this year we are reintroduced to a newer, better, even more delightful version of Chocolate Truffle Kisses and I love them. The milk chocolate enrobes a rich whipped chocolate center reminiscent of creamy chocolate frosting. The entire thing melts in the mouth instantly, with merely chocolate scented vapor left on the tongue in seconds. Of course then you have to eat another. And another. The bag disappeared in my house in record time and I figure that's the ultimate test. Find some of these seasonal treats before they disappear!

Score: 5 (5!!)
