Candy lovers, rejoice! There is a new flavor of Hershey's Kisses on the market, and they look absolutely amazing. According to Delish, Hershey's Birthday Cake-flavored Kisses are a thing now, and I couldn't be more excited to try them. If there is anything I love, it's trying new desserts. Seriously: I am the world's biggest fan of seasonal treats. Whether it's Halloween candy, Christmas candy, or chocolate Easter eggs, I know I'm buying them when I'm in the candy aisle of any given store. And while my birthday isn't for quite a while, I'm absolutely going to track down these Birthday Cake kisses, because, well... how could I not?
According to The Impulsive Buy, you can find Hershey's Birthday Cake Kisses in the celebration aisles of Walmart stores nationwide, although there's no word yet on how long they'll be around. But I have a feeling these new treats will really satisfy in terms of taste and texture; after all, Hershey's writes that the new Kisses "pack the taste of birthday cake into just one bite, complete with a satisfying crunch." According to Refinery29, the "crunch" aspect of the kisses comes from colorful cookies that are mixed into the white chocolate.
What inspired this delightful gift which Hershey's has so graciously given to the masses? According to Hershey's Instagram account, where they announced the release of their Birthday Cake kisses, the new flavor is in celebration of Hershey's 109th birthday. What calls for celebration more than living for well over a century? Not much. Though if you ask me, these little candies are worth celebrating any day of the week, birthday or not.
And besides just unwrapping them and enjoying them as is, just think of all the other fun ways you could use them when it comes to baking. After all, the possibilities are endless: You can use them as toppings for ice cream or frozen yogurt, bake them into cookies or cakes, and so much more. And of course, what would be a better addition to a birthday cake than some Birthday Cake Hershey's Kisses?
