Hersheys Cookies ‘n’ Creme kisses – £1.00 Poundland American sweets are cool. Its a fact! I first tasted Hersheys chocolate when I worked as a window dresser at Harrods in the 90’s. At that time Harrods was pretty much the only place you could get American chocolate and US celebrities came in all the time to pick up their favourites.
I liked the taste a lot – its not as sweet as Britsh chocolate and had a slightly powdery feel to it. Plus it was American so in my mind, so cool. The first time I went to New York I visited the Hersheys store on Times Square and realised Hersheys were the Willy Wonka’s of America producing pretty much every flavour of chocolate you could imagine…including one of my now favourites, Cookies n Creme. Imagine Haagen Daz ice cream as a chocolate bar…and thats what youve got.
I might love the brand and all it offers, but I hate paying ridiculous prices for imported sweets. When I saw Poundland now had an American sweet section I was pretty excited, especially as they were selling the range at 50-70% less than those ‘olde fashioned’ sweet shops that have sprung up all over the place.
I love the way the kiss looks too, with the little pull-tab that unravels the foil covering, it is such an iconic design. Also if you’re like me and have to watch what you eat, they are small and 3/4 of them go a long way, fixing your sweet craving without eating loads of calories.
Treat yourself to some kisses, you wont regret it!
