This is a hobby i've had for a long time----but its getting more time-consuming as Hershey comes out with new flavors of chocolate kisses....i dont bother with dark chocolate---only white or milk chocolate....this will be updated periodically as i get the other flavors.
new flavor---chocolate marshmallow---there isnt any white center---its just a really sweet chocolate---some people have said they taste smore's----not me---its just a sweeter chocolate...david thinks it tastes like black licorice.
traditional original plain old hershey chocolates---yum---if there arent any others around---best used on peanut butter cookies...my favorite cookies EVER.
I collect hershey kisses---nothing dark chocolate---but if it is a candy kiss and its new---i'll try it----this is the best ever---cordial cherry.
these are brand new----candy corn---they are white chocolate with and orange layer and a yellow thin bottom layer---the taste is very soft and subtle...very smooth....mmmmmmmmmmmmm....chocolate with almonds.......a classic.....
caramel in the middle----really gooey---one of the first 'gourmet' kissescookies & cream----white chocolate with little cookie crumbs in it----yummy.

From wikipedia:

The Kisses are one of the most popular candies in the US. In 1989, the chocolate drops were the 5th most popular chocolate in the United States, spawning sales that topped $400 million dollars. More than 80 million Hershey's Kisses are produced each day at the company's two factories. Today's Kisses use Hershey's original milk chocolate formula.
In 2006 Hershey's Kissables were introduced as a bite sized, candy coated alternative to Kisses.

from me---kissables are HORRIBLE!

more wikipedia:

Hershey's Kisses were introduced in 1907. A common myth is that the name comes from an appropriation of a common industry term for a dab of chocolate. However, the "kissing" action by the machines used to make the chocolate is the reason. In a strange court case, hard rock band Kiss filed suit against the Pennsylvania-based company for, what drummer Peter Criss stated "stealing their well-known name.

LOL! In our RS, we have a Kiss basket that goes around each Sunday for sisters who have 1)Said something nice to someone that day, 2)Done their VT, and/or 3)Read their lesson. (They get one for each thing done.) I think of you everytime it goes by because there is a large variety in the basket. My favorite thing was when you brought a Kiss platter for your treat in our Christmas gift exchange one year. Awesome! Hershey's Kisses=Meredith Jeppson

I had no idea there were so many varieties of kisses! And, just curiousity--how could a champaign "flavored" piece of candy be the appearance of evil? I'm sure most people realize the flavor can be recreated artifically :-) (not that I've ever had or even heard of those or "green tea" kisses)
