I Vant to Suck Your…Kisses

Walking through the candy aisle at Wal-Mart can be very dangerous.  That’s how I spotted the Vampire Hershey’s Kisses.  Immediately intrigued, I had to give them a try.

Even the foil wrappers of these kisses are fun – they are orange bats on a purple background.  The inside is a traditional Hershey’s Kiss shape.  The outside is milk chocolate like a traditional kiss.  It’s the inside that gives them their theming.  Instead of being solid milk chocolate, these are fill with strawberry syrup.  If you bit into them, the result certainly does look fake bloody.

Strawberry syrup is usually more miss than hit for me, and that’s the case again here.  It just tastes so fake.  It’s not awful, and mixed with the milk chocolate it cuts down on the fake taste some.  It just doesn’t taste as good as I would like.  Yes, I’m asking a lot of my strawberry syrup.

I can definitely see these kisses appealing to people.  They are sweet, and the chocolate itself is good.  These would be fun to have at a Halloween party or just to enjoy during October.

I wouldn’t rush out and buy another bag of Vampire Hershey’s Kisses, but I am enjoying the bag I already bought.  If you enjoy strawberry mixed with chocolate, you’ll want to try them for yourself and make up your own mind.

  1. Don't know that I would buy any, but thanks for the review. Then endless permutations of M&Ms and Oreos is fascinating to me, even if I don't really want to taste a Candy Corn Oreo!
