It’s spring time! There’s love in the air...and Carrot Cake Kisses on the shelves!!

If you’re reading this, chances are you probably showered your special someone not too long ago with the traditional milk chocolate Hershey’s Kisses; ones that were likely emblazoned in holiday-specific pink and red foil wrappers.

Not even a month later, Hershey’s is debuting an Easter-oriented variant of their popular Hershey’s Kisses. However, unlike their Valentine’s Day “spinoff”, these won’t be delivering that familiar Hershey’s milk chocolate “kiss”.

Available exclusively at Walmart (Sorry, we can’t get these for you L), these carrot cake flavored kisses will soon be making an appearance sporting an eye-catching orange foil wrapper and a unique plume (the paper “flag” that sticks out of the top of every Hershey’s Kiss) stating the name of this rather unusual flavor in grassy green lettering, “carrot cake”.

At this point, one may ask, “What does a carrot cake flavored kiss taste like?” Upon unraveling the delectable kiss from its flaky foil wrapper, one is treated to the bizarre sight of an apricot-colored kiss that is the same size as, but at the same time many shades removed from, a traditional brown milk chocolate kiss. The difference in color is largely attributed to Hershey’s use of a white chocolate base infused with vanilla and a dash of spices. The cream cheese like heart of each carrot cake flavored kiss works alongside this interesting blend of flavors to provide it’s beholder with a taste reminiscent of a slice of carrot cake; albeit in a more convenient, pocket-sized treat!
