kisses in formation
Soon to appear at a supermarket near you are these adorable little colored Kisses. They’re called Kissables, brought to us by the good people at Hershey’s. Think “mini-me” Hershey’s Kisses coated in a colorful candy shell. Choose your favorite from among blue, red, yellow, green, and orange. Boo eats only the blue Kissables, which explains the dearth of blue in the photos.
Other candy-coated candies use compound chocolate (hard vegetable fat mixed with sugar, cocoa powder or powdered milk and flavorings) because it’s cheaper and doesn’t melt as easily. I noticed that Hershey’s Kissables uses real chocolate: sugar, cocoa butter, and chocolate lead the ingredient list.
I happened to have a bag of M&M’s lying around, so I shot them together with the Kissables for fun. You make your own conclusions.
