Is it too early to load up your trick-or-treat buckets? Apparently, the good folks over at Hershey’s don’t think so. And that’s why they’re spoiling us with Halloween-themed Kisses as early as now. The brand recently gave select online snack reviewers an early look and taste of the new Vampire Kisses. Judging by the packaging alone, you can already tell that it’s a bloody good treat that even Count Dracula would approve of!
For starters, they come in a purple foil wrapper with red bats all over. Unlike typical chocolate Kisses, the narrow strips of paper on top of these treats do not indicate the word “Kisses.” Instead, these ones have paper plumes (Yes, they actually have a name!) that feature the word “vampire” on them. It’s definitely a nice spooky touch to add to your trick-or-treat goodie bags. But the real Halloween surprise lies inside these bite-size pieces.
Hershey’s new Vampire Kisses are oozing with strawberry crème filling to give you some “bloody fangs” this Halloween!
These treats actually consist of a milk chocolate shell with a strawberry crème filling inside. Take note, the filling is “gooey,” this is what Instagram user @markie_devo said. So, expect that it will literally ooze out once you’ve sunk your teeth into the chocolate covering. Sounds like a great and yummy alternative to other edible fake blood treats out there, don’t you think?
The new Vampire Kisses are reportedly hitting the stores nationwide this month. They’ll come in 9.8-ounce bags and will retail for $3.79 each. As with any Halloween-themed treats, expect that they will be gone as soon as the spooky season is over. So, don’t hesitate to stock up on these strawberry crème-filled goodies whenever you spot them in stores!
And while you’re out scouting for these special-edition Kisses, you might stumble upon other Halloween-themed candies too! Apparently, there are three more coming our way, including Kit Kat Witch’s Brew, Reese’s Franken-Cup and Cookies ‘n’ Crème Fangs bar.
Now that you’ve been warned, you’ll know for sure what to look for on your next grocery run. Good luck!
