Yesterday marked the 100th anniversary of the Hershey Kiss. To honor it, chefs in Hershey created the largest Hershey's kiss, weighing in at over 30,000 pounds. It used enough chocolate to make over 3 million Hershey kisses. In honor of the milk chocolate, Hershey is compiling 100 recipes using chocolate. You can collect them here: http://www.hersheypa.com/dining/100th/index.php Hershey kisses are available in a variety of flavors and combinations. Which one is your favorite?

I'm not sure. Another rumor was that a lot of their crops are in Cuba. Milton Hershey must be rolling around in his grave. If you've read the biography, you'll understand why. He wanted all the workers to have a share in the company, and a trust set up for the Milton Hershey School. A lot has changed. It's not the Utopia Hershey originally invented.

My favorite is the original plain milk chocolate. I used to prefer m&ms but the last few years have grown to like just plain milk chocolate with no sugar coating which makes for slightly less calories which is important when you eat as much as I do. The only problem I have is that little tiny pieces of aluminum foil keep popping up all over my house.

Thanks for responding. I'm a purist, so I like the original milk chocolate ones as well. A close second is Hugs, the white and milk chocolate together. Last time I was at Hersheypark, they were giving out the candy-coated kisses. I did not like them at all.

I don't think I have a favorite hershey's. I lOVE chocolate and it hurts me when people ask me to choose a favorite so I just like all of them especially hershey's.
