SKYWATCH FRIDAY - A Kiss in the Sky

People in Hershey, Pennsylvania, get 'kissed' every day, if they look up and see these overhead street lights. They don't melt, either! (These aluminum foil-covered candies are called 'Hershey's Kisses.')

This a whole new world to be. I would quite happily be kissed by that funny little light every day.

I am thinking about the one who got this "perfect" idea...

Hi, all!

James, actually there's another brown version that is a Kiss without the foil!

That's so cool! All of a sudden I'm tasting H's chocolate! Thanks for the virtual non-caloric treat! (I'm down another couple lbs, BTW and that makes 15 since mother's day). Virtual is all the chocolate I'm doing. :-)

Why are those called kisses? Any ideas?

MileKick,

Here's what Wikipedia has to say:

"Hershey's Kisses were introduced in 1907. While it's not known exactly how KISSES got their name, it is a popular theory that the candy was named for the sound or motion of the chocolate being deposited during the manufacturing process."

Thanks, that makes a lot of sense. Could have checked it myself I guess. Now I feel dumb... :P
