    Kiss off that relationship.

    But they’re such a sweet couple.

    A Hug and a Kiss?

    Is this another culture specific reference, because I’ve no idea what we’re supposed to be looking at here?

    @A Common 'tater

    You don’t have Hershey’s Kisses where you live?

    For the rest of the planet, here’s a Wikipedia link to Hershey’s Kisses.

    He must be a real hard candy…probably salt-water taffy.

    I bet they don’t have Chimos, Lacasitos, Sugus or Chupachups, either. They do have Pez dispensers in the US, though they’d never admit the Pez candies were invented in a different country.

    My goodness….
    Blunebottle may have only been curious about the answer to that question…. perhaps he wants to learn about your culture.


    But if we agree that he was being unknowingly US-centric, in his reply, it doesn’t come close to matching the unwarranted venom in the responses.


    Even if someone is totally off the wall, eg, calls someone an idiot, you can just flag him and move on.

    There is no reason for flame wars on this site.


    Tater, we can get most of the candy you mention in import stores, so some people know those and some don’t…. especially Baci and Cadbury Flake.

    OTOH plain Cadbury chocolate bars, Fruit and Nut, Caramello and a few others, including the Easter eggs, are in regular US supermarkets.


    Womble, we do have Chupachups, here in California… but not the others, as far as I know.
    But why would you say that we’d “never admit” Pez candies were invented in a different country. That’s plain silly!


    Meanwhile, most countries seem to have some version of the wrapped candy shown as the hosts.

    I don’t know if the person who made the question “You don’t have Hershey’s Kisses where you live?” was trying to be rude, maybe just a little surprised.

    Hershey’s Chocolate Company is a multi-billion dollar company that started in 1894 by Milton S. Hershey and is world-known.

    The first Hershey’s Kiss candy was produced in 1907 and is one of the company’s most popular products along with the Hershey Bar, Kit Kat; and the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup.

    Are Hershey’s Kisses better than candy kisses?

    Actually Hershey is not universally known outside the American continent – North and South.

    She seems wound a little tight.

    As do others here. I think we all need a candy break.
