Theme Thursday = Kiss

  • Killed production from 1942 to 1949 due to the rationing of raw materials during WWII made the aluminum foil for the wrappers a scarce commodity!
  • Inserted paper plume started in 1924, as the registered trademark!
  • Soley made of milk chocolate originally in 1907, the kiss now comes in a variety of flavors!
  • Smooch ~ yes, the sound of the motion of the chocolate being deposited during the manufacturing process is how the kiss got it's name!

  7. I did not know any of that and it's wonderful trivia. My mother kept a bowl of Hershey kisses in the house at all times. My husband, who was my boyfriend way back then, remembers that above all things.

  10. Willow ~ I didn't know that about the sound, either! It's kinda cute...and it probably is a big sound with hundreds of them being processed at once! :)

  11. Gaelikaa ~ yes, you must have your sister bring you some kisses! They are an American icon....super sweet milk chocolate....and like I said in the post, they've been around since 1907.

  24. I've always loved that postage stamp, too! Love kisses, of the chocolate kind I mean. I so enjoyed reading about them. Fantastic info!

    How could anyone not know about the chocolate kiss? I'm curious now about where Alan lives. He definitely needs some.

  26. Kayren ~ Alan is in the UK and Gaelikaa is in India. Who knew there were places that the kisses didn't go!

  27. I've never had a Kiss. I don't think you can beg, steal or buy a Kiss in Englandistan.

    Oh, what wouldn't I give for a Kiss!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Haha . . surprisingly, American chocolate is not very popular over here despite Hershey's attempt to crack the market. I think we have to much lovely European chocolate! I'm a peanut butter cup fan myself!

    ReplyDelete
  29. OH- I've never heard of these before- they sound yummy.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Baino ~ actually, I agree with you! The kisses are almost too sweet for me. I'd much rather have something dark and European!
