Hershey’s Kisses debuted in 1907 and originally were hand wrapped in crinkly, silver aluminum foil wrappers.  In 1921 the chocolates were machine wrapped and the little paper plume was added. The plume actually has a purpose: When pulled down toward the flat bottom of the candy, the paper plume tears the foil and the chocolate pops right out.

It wasn’t until the 1960s that red and green metallic wrappers were introduced at Christmastime. Next came pastel-colored metallic wrappers for Easter, and on and on and on. Chocolate Kisses can now be found in a myriad of varieties, flavors, and wrapper colors and the plumes can even be personalized for your special occasion. I am partial to the original plain chocolate variety wrapped in any color metallic foil. Do you have a favorite variety of Hershey’s Kisses?

  1. I’ve been MIA lately, and I can say I’ve missed seeing your paintings! I love how you can capture reflections so well.
    And to answer your question, I do appreciate the almond kisses 🙂
