These were a bit of a surprise. I’ve never particularly been a fan of Hershey’s Kisses – the crumbly texture and overly sweet taste has always struck me as being even worse than the typical Hershey milk chocolate. Plus, my experience with Hershey-made truffles has so far been less than stellar. But these were actually pretty tasty. Maybe it helps that my expectations were so low.
A package of Hershey’s Kisses: Chocolate Truffle consists of five truffle-filled milk chocolate Kisses. I’m not sure if you can tell from the picture, but there’s really not a whole lot of the truffle filling in there. That’s probably a good thing, as Hershey’s truffles tend to be fairly mediocre. The milk chocolate is quite creamy; so creamy, in fact, that it’s hard to differentiate the chocolate from the truffle when you’re eating it. It’s quite sweet, of course, but not as sweet as you might expect.
Again, the low expectations might have helped – this is one of those things where I had pretty much decided that I wasn’t going to like it right from the get-go – but this wasn’t bad at all, and certainly something I could see myself buying again. They’re definitely the best Hershey’s Kisses that I’ve had so far, though I’m far from a Kiss expert.
