Curse you and your yummy holiday flavor goodness, particularly your "candy cane" flavor that mixes chips of candy canes in white/mint chocolate. Eating them has become a compulsion. My butt will surely expand past the outer edges of my chair soon, but alas, I cannot resist their minty crunchy goodness.

Curse you, Hersheys!!

I saw they have Kisses with cherries inside. I haven't tried them yet but I LOVE choclate covered cherries and if it's Hershey's they have to be good.

The candy cane ones are soooo yummy. My ds stole them and hid them under his pillow, he said he couldn't help himself, they were just too yummy Thankfully my dh moo'd at me last time I was at the store and grabbed a bag and stopped me in my tracks. But I bet "Santa" will put some in the stockings around here

I hate Hershey's kisses, but I've never tried the flavored ones. I don't really need to try them either, it sounds like. I don't need an enticement to eat more sugar.

I have some mint M&Ms that are waiting until Christmas to be opened, but I've opened the bag of dark M&Ms already.

OK. 1st, those are absolutely DEVINE!!

But second. There are NOT crushed up candy canes in them. What is inside is those little sugar sprinkle ball thingies. The things that are on the tops of those flat pastel candies, or on the tops of sno-caps (non-pariels). Taste one again right now and you will see that there are not candy canes in them.

Personally, I prefer the OTHER flavored Hershey's kisses--the peanut butter ones are EXCELLENT, and the caramel ones a close second.

Never been a big fan of white chocolate, myself . . . :

For me it's the Sweet's brand orange sticks. I've been looking all over town and this afternoon I finally found them!


Now I can't stop eating them.

Ohhhhhhhhhhh, what a treat!!! I had no idea.... That sounds like it'd be a really good melted topping for something divine like cheesecake... Hmmm.....

Hubby loves the dark chocolate. It took many years before it became common here. I looked forever for those things!

My coworker brought in some mini Mint Kit Kats a few days ago. I ate 3/4 of them.

I'm also on the lookout for those 59 cent Russel Stover Chocolate Truffles.

Why, oh why, must you ladies tempt me with promises of dark-chocolatey-minty-caramelly-peanut buttery treats? Now all I can think about is the candy aisle.

Must...go...store...now....

I tried them. Well, they didn't have cherries just the cherry flavored goop that usually surrounds the cherry cordials. Anyway, yum yum I can't stop eating them. They even make all the other candy in the candy jar taste like cherries!!!

It's actually a cherry flavored creme filling : I LOVE chocolate covered cherries & was sadly disappointed in these.

The chocolate mint kisses are a current favorite of mine- theya re hidden from the rest of my family. :

I had one taste of Mint M&M's a few weeks ago, and have been looking for them in vain ever since.

And now you tell me they have coconut Hershey's kisses? Aw man...

Aww, man! Why did you have to post this?

I saw those at the store the other day and was really tempted to buy them. I told myself, "Aw, they're probably not that good anyways", but obviously, that will not work anymore! I guess I'll be buying some tonight.

OMG I think I just swooned. I have never swooned before, but this did it.

I hit Stop & Shop first thing tomorrow morning. This thread is NOT good for my new fitness-regimen-in-theory/planning-stages.

However having lost my job last week I think I am entitled to some chocolate kisses comfort, dontcha think?
