I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Hershey’s KISSES Deluxe. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
In spite of our love-hate relationship, I’ll just come right out and say it– sometimes I wish Facebook and Snapchat didn’t exist. Although their channels do have some merit, social media has become a crutch for staying connected to loved ones with minimal, impersonal effort. Despite all the advantages that technology brings, the holiday season is our designated time to go one step further with simple gestures, such as sending a Christmas card or quickly dropping by a gift, to say “I love you,” “I miss you,” and “Thank you for all that you do.” Now, I’m a financial realist, and I know that all these simple gifts can add up on a credit card statement, so my default suggestion is and will always be chocolate. Hershey’s, aka the #1 holiday chocolate, just released their KISSES Deluxe chocolates, and their premium recipe and new golden wrappers make them a decadent, fancy, and affordable treat for friends and family.
Twice the size of an original KISSES Chocolate, Hershey’s KISSES Deluxe have a creamy chocolate center surrounding a whole roasted hazelnut, finished with delicate crisps and smooth milk chocolate, making them an affordable and deliciously thoughtful way to say “Hello from the other side” this Christmas. In fact, their official mission is to allow people to elevate their holiday season and “Say More,” creating a rallying cry to take the time to talk with friends and family in more meaningful way. Heartfelt stories will be shared through videos and on Hershey’s social channels, along with information on how to #SayMore to the ones you love.
Side Note: Please note how the packaging matches my Christmas tree. Fate.
If you’re wondering how they taste, as a self-proclaimed chocolate snob, I can personally vouch for their goodness.
