Warning: Hershey kiss varieties and \"big jumbo\" bags

Publish date:
Updated on

So at work today, there was a huge thing of kisses in the candy jar. Multiple varities...so I asked my co-worker if she had the bags (as in plural). She said, "nope - they all came in one big bag".

I looked--- one of the varieties was the pnut one...BLAH!

So - just beware, and again as a reminder...that for Hershey Kisses you have to see the actual bag it came from and not rely on the white papery tag and coloring of foil what kind of kiss it is. It could have come from a jumbo bag of mixed kisses...my comfort zone won't allow me to eat the plain ones from those bags, b/c if you've ever looked at the bottom of a bag of kisses...lots of little kiss-point that broke off and fell out of the foil wrapper.

Wow, thanks for that warning. I had no idea there were mixed bags of kisses out there and regular ones are defintely in our comfort zone so this is nice info to know, thanks again!

I've worried about kisses in the way that DS is only allowed to eat them at our house. I worry that with so many varieties he will take one from a dish at someone else's house and not realize its an almond one or another unsafe one.

I have not seen the mixed bag...one more reason to stay with my rule to him.

Yes, great point!

If my children get loose kisses, I always swap them at home, Just in case. Unless I know who gave them and I feel comfortable asking if it was just a plain bag(but those folks would usually come to me and reassure me)! becca

Yes - my officemate had great intentions of course...she picked out the almond and PB ones, not quite thinking of smaller details. I wasn't mad or angry at her, I actually thought it thoughtful.

I just saw the jumbo bags at Walgreens...they have all different mixes...some with hugs and kisses, some with regular, almond, pb kisses...some with the newer filled ones (caramel, coconut, truffle).

A while back I praised Hershey's for their 'white tags' with Kisses, in particular that the peanut butter ones say 'peanut butter' and so does the foil...as to not confuse Kisses from each other.

Now of course, I'm going to write a small complaint letter to them about the jumbo bags, and the cross-x concerns.

Ah well --- I still like their labeling procedures, so no red face icon [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] They are usually on the ball, too bad on this mishap of the jumbo bags.

...like I need the chocolate anyway... Adrienne
