100 Years and Counting!

Been to the Post Office lately? If so, you might have been handed a sweetly surprising stamp: The With Love and Kisses stamp has just debuted to celebrate HERSHEY’S KISSES 100th anniversary. The unmistakable shape of HERSHEY’S KISSES Brand has not changed since Hershey introduced this milk chocolate candy to the nation in 1907.
HERSHEY’S KISSES have been available year round for 100 years with only one exception. Any idea what was the exception? And why? If you know, comment on this blog or e-mail me asap. Tomorrow’s blog will reveal the answer. And the winner receives something sweet!

    Did Hershey’s suspend making kisses during WW2 because all the chocolate was going into field rations for the GIs? My dad hated chocolate after he got home from the Pacific, he never ate it again. He said they put so much parrafin in the chocolate to keep it from melting in the hot climate that it tasted terrible.

    I think it had something to do with chocolate needed or rationed during wartime.

    Did Hershey Kisses stop getting made during the Great Depression? Too expensive to get the materials? Aren’t cocoa beans imported? Or is it cacao beans? Am I asking too many questions? 🙂
