I think this justifies a new thread. I was in CVS today and saw in the Halloween section a bag full of tiny bags of Kissables. And they looked so cute--all different colors.

I immediately bought one in order to give positive reinforcement to Hershey. The label looked fine--like the regular Kissables.

It was $2.99, and if I had thought to bring my $1 Extra Buck, it would have been cheaper, obviously.

I will buy more.

At church tonight they served a may contain snack (ugh--I didn't know they were serving snacks, and even so--they had gotten so good about talking with me first). This is a separate infuriating issue, but I did go to the car and retrieve one of the little bags for DS to have between his children's meeting and choir.

I'm thrilled Hershey has done this.

I do have them in my vending machine at work, too, BTW, so they're spreading. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I bought a bag of these too to put some in my son's "safe treat" standby bag. He loves them!

Yes - they are everywhere and it's great!
I've already bought four of the snack-size bags for Halloween! Here in upstate NY I've seen them at Hannaford, CVS, Walmart and Target.

Wow! I didn't know this! And I'm the type of person who *NEEDS* to have one or two pkgs a day, LOL! Maybe snack size is the way to go!
Thanks for telling us this!!

I already bought two bags for Halloween. I bought them at target, also saw them at a Stop & Shop (but they are not at my regular S&S--I saw them at another one).

Try with the Halloween candy in the seasonal section. That is where I found them.

This is not quite the snack size, but I saw this the other day and felt a certain symbotic pull toward the vehicle:

I actually went up toward it (parked outside of a grocery store I was at), because I wanted to talk with them about shea, but no one was there. When I came out, it was gone--probably escaping the probling questions I was about to ask, no doubt!
Actually, we've bought SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO many Kissables w/o shea--the pre-shea ones that I have no idea how we'll move with them. And VNF chips that we have in the freezer. Ugh. Those will be two food items we'll move with I guess. I can think of a few other Texas things, too.

McCobbre - I had to find out if the Kissmobile was going to be in my state, but it isn't. Anyway, it's related to a contest "The Sweetest Mom."
