I've never been a huge fan of Hershey's Kisses. There's something about the chocolate that just tastes a little bit wrong. The strange thing about it is that the flavour is only subtly wrong, it's not something very noticeable. That makes this problem a little bit worse. It's as if the Hershey's Kisses chocolate is almost perfect, but the subtle part that's off seems to ruin it for me completely.
I think the thing I dislike about Hershey's Kisses is the flavour, and not the texture. I also think the thing I don't like is a very personal dislike, and I could see it not bothering other people at all. This off flavour also comes from years and years of eating Hershey's Kisses too. I wonder, if this had been the first time ever trying a Hershey's Kiss, if I'd still feel the same way. I think it's possible that I've built a dislike for Hershey's Kisses from years of reflection. It could also be that I'm a chocolate snob and this particular milk chocolate just doesn't cut it for me.
I guess what I'm saying is, don't go and buy me a big bag of Hershey's Kisses for my birthday or Christmas. However, you might like them, you might even like them a lot, I just can't see myself becoming a fan. On a side note, don't even get me started about the difference between these and chocolate chips, it's a pet peeve of mine.
