According to a report first appearing on CNBC, Hershey says it has fixed the manufacturing issue responsible for producing Kisses with broken tips. The “issue” angered holiday bakers who claimed the broken tips put a damper on their cookie creations.
The company reportedly adjusted their processes to ensue greater Kiss consistency – and just in time for Valentine’s Day. However, due to the volume of the chocolate candy produced, some tip-less Kisses will remain on the market and could end up in consumer’s hands for a short time.
Milton Hershey founded the iconic chocolate brand in 1894. The legendary Kisses, its namesake chocolate bar and Kit-Kats and are three of the country’s top chocolate brands. The Kisses have become so strongly associated with the company that Kiss-shaped lampposts adorn the streets of Hershey, Pennsylvania.
