I was recently in Walmarts, and noticed a variety of new flavors of Hershey Kisses, like vanilla yogurt?  Cookies and creme, and of course old favorites like cherry cordial and one other…I’ve seen the NY Cheesecake at Sams Club, I am guessing all these are limited edition?  They were kind of pricey at $3.50 a bag at Wal Mart, and I’m not sure how much they are at Sams. 

Is there any other flavors I may have missed that are currently out there?  Has anyone tried these?

Cookies and Cream I haven’t tried, though I’d assume it to be the same as the Hershey’s Cookies and Cream bar, only in Kiss form. I’ve been seeing the cherry ones everywhere lately! I must say, I’m glad it’s not a full blown limited edition like it used to be. I did love them, however I think I overdid it last christmas since I thought I’d have to wait another year before I’d get my hands on them again. The Cherry Cordial ones I think are fantastic. It’s totally like a milk chocolate cherry cordial, only without the texture of the cherry. As for the Vanilla Yogurt(yoghurt?) kisses, I haven’t pushed myself to try those yet. Two easters ago when the Vanilla Cream kisses came out, I was expecting the vanilla center to be more like the vanilla centers in boxed chocolates. Not the case at all, it was a solid, slightly vanilla enhanced “cream”. So.. I expect these to be simliar, only maybe with a pinch of “sourness” added to it? I love limited edition Kisses, my problem is I waste money on huge bags of them, only to find out they aren’t all that good(a majority of the time anyways). So I’m curious to see how they are!! Oh! The New York Cheescake ones I did try last Valentine’s Day. I thought they were okay. I couldn’t eat a handful of them in one sitting though. I’m a huge cheesecake fan, but the cheescake substance was similar to how I tried to describe the vanilla cream kisses. It’s more of a solid cream(not that I expect them to put actual cheesecake in kisses!), but a bit softer. It’s also a very rich cheesecake flavour, which is why I can’t eat too many at a time. For kisses, I thought they were pretty good. Not as good as the Cherry Cordials though!

the cookies’n'creme kisses were a huge disappointment for me, because they use nonpareils instead of actual cookie bits.  the chocolate itself tastes pretty good:  smooth, buttery, a little salty.  but those crunchy candy bits are NOT cookies!!!

I really enjoyed the NY cheesecake kisses!  They were better than expected.  Sadly, I haven’t seen them since I bought the first bag, bummer.

Vanilla Yogurt? That’s interesting!

I’ve had the NY Cheesecake, which I thought was tasty, but I don’t think I’d want a whole bag of them. I bought a bag of chocolate marshmallow kisses. I didn’t read the package carefully, and I assumed that it was filled with a marshmallow creme. I was very sorry when I discovered that they were regular chocolate kisses with a cloying, artificial marshmallow flavoring. That was probably the worst of the limited-editions that I tried!

I bought a few bags of the Hersheys Hot Chocolate Kisses.  They were a little sweet, but they just melted in your mouth.  I bought them last Christmas, check them out.  If they ever came out with a dark chocolate kiss, it would replace the Hot Chocolate Kisses as my favorite.

I’ve had dark chocolate kisses my mother in law had some at christmas time last year I am the only one who would eat them on purpose. No one else likes dark chocolate. I think the wrappers where in the red and greem christmas colors but the flag said “hersheys dark”

They do have Dark Chocolate Kisses! They’ve got the brilliant violet foil wrapper don’t they? We’ve always got them in stock at our Target here in town.

The Hershey Insider has a photo of the new Caramel Apple Kisses!

http://civellophoto.typepad.com/hersheyinsider/2008/07/caramel-apple-kisses.html

They’re available now at Hershey’s Chocolate World (and I’m guessing the Hershey’s store at Times Square) and it looks like the Candy Corn Kisses will also be back.

I was in St. Louis last March, which is two hours away from where I live, and I saw the Kisses with marshmallow creme as well as chocolate covered strawberry kisses. I could just kick myself for not buying them there. I just assumed that if they were in that part of Missouri, they’d be in my town as well. WRONG! I’ve never been able to find them here. Has anyone else seen the strawberry kisses and does anyone know if they’re still being made at all?

I’ll have to keep an eye open for the Caramel Apple. I hope they have them in small bags or single servings, though, because I thought the Cherry Cordial were so-so and Cheesecake ones were absolutely horrible. wink I don’t seem to either have the taste for these creations, or I just picked the not so great ones to try.

I saw that review! Marshmallow Creme FILLED kisses sound interesting! Which is, of course, what I was thinking I was purchasing! I wouldn’t mind trying the variety with the creme, but I’d double-check that it’s definitely the creme version before buying anything that says ‘marshmallow’ and ‘kisses’ on the bag! I haven’t seen them in stores yet, but I’d check Target if I were looking for them!
