Winter Treats: Hershey's Hot Cocoa Kisses
The concept of Hershey's Hot Cocoa Kisses is exciting-- a classic milk chocolate kiss filled with a dollop of creamy marshmallow reminiscent of a mug of hot cocoa with marshmallows on top. It's clever and appealing. Unfortunately, this marshmallow creme is all wrong. It is So Sweet and tastes less like marshmallow than a thick sugar frosting. I forced a few upon my colleagues and all pronounced themselves fans of the original Hershey's Kiss but all stopped at only one Hershey's Hot Cocoa Kiss. Simply too sweet. I hope that Hershey's goes back to the drawing board and tries this flavor again with a different marshmallow component--it could be delicious!
