Hershey Kisses filled with Buttercreme

I love limited edition candy (although I rarely find it to be as good as the original). So, when I saw Hershey had a new filled Kiss for Easter, I had to buy it. With all of the Easter candy I've reviewed, I haven't had a chance to review these yet. This isn't a new earth-shattering candy, it's a familiar candy with a twist.

When I opened the bag, I could instantly smell chocolate and frosting. I'm a huge fan of frosting, especially buttercreme frosting. I was really amazed that this Kiss did taste like buttercreme frosting. It's not the best buttercreme flavor I've ever had, but it wasn't terrible. I could taste vanilla, butter and salt as the primary flavors which are more powerful than the chocolate taste. It's amazing how secondary the chocolate flavor is in this candy. I don't think that is a bad thing because I'm never overly impressed with Hershey chocolate anyway. It's not terrible, but it's not great. It's a very sweet chocolate that compliments the creamy sweet buttercreme filling inside this candy. It lies in that big land of mediocrity that is mass-produced American candy from the big three candy companies.

The very sweet chocolate does complement the creamy sweet buttercreme filling inside this candy. Since I mentioned sweet, let me say, this Kiss is overly sweet. If you are not one of those people that hopes you get the corner piece of birthday cake with the frosting roses, then this candy probably is not for you. This is one of the better limited editions of Hershey Kisses that I've had, but as usual, you just can't beat the original.

Your photos just keep getting better and better! Especially that middle one, the contrast in the focus really makes the cut piece pop out, while giving a great kissy background. I'm thinking I need to go to candy photo school.


Thank you very much for the compliment and comment. I really appreciate it.

I have to do more post processing to get my photos to turn out like this set. I do not always have the time as my Cadbury photos show. I was hurried in shooting and posting those. :(

My current setup is a white box made out of cardboard and white paper with desk lamps providing the lighting. It makes for some odd color hues in my pictures which I can get rid of in Photoshop if I have 5-6 minutes per photo. I've set a few goals for myself on posts, if I reach them, I'll start upgrading gear. Nicer light table, 60mm Nikon micro lense etc... I really do love how your photos turn out. Thanks again!

The reason why I love kisses chocolate its because its very sweet chocolate does complement the creamy sweet butter creme filling inside this candy. Yummy and delicious.
