You may have eaten a few handfuls of these over the holidays. Delicious Hershey Kisses. But why are they called that anyway?
I always thought it had to do with the shape and how it’s a mold of when you pucker your lips to kiss. But that’s not it! It had more to do with sound actually. When they make the candies in the factory the machine that squirts out the chocolate into that shape onto the conveyor belt makes a sound similar to what a kiss would sound like.
Wow! You’re definitely going to think of that next time you eat one.
