Hershey Kisses Deluxe

635808706113178454-hersheyskissesdeluxe2

Pennsylvania’s most iconic chocolate maker is doubling-down on one of its most popular treats. The Hershey Company on Tuesday announced its Hershey Kisses Deluxe.

The new Kisses, on sale November 5, 2015, will be twice the size of a normal Kiss – the oversized, chocolate chips wrapped in silver foil – and feature a hazelnut center and rice crisps in the chocolate.

The bigger Kisses are wrapped in gold foil and, according to the company’s website, will be packaged in quantities ranging from 3 to 75. The three-Kiss box will cost $1; the 75-piece gift box will be $32.

Company officials tell USA Today the innovation is the biggest since the central Pennsylvania company added almonds to the Kisses 25 years ago.

A PEZ Movie Is In Development

pez-1024

PEZ Candy Inc. has entered into an agreement with Envision Media Arts to develop a feature animated movie based on their world-famous line of candy dispensers.

Cameron Fay (The Three Stooges, Brother in Law) will pen the screenplay for the film, which clearly earmarks it as being a comedy. Lee Nelson (Pathfinder) and David Buelow (Celeste & Jesse Forever) will produce the PEZ movie.

“PEZ Candy is beloved by children and adults alike,” EMA CEO and founder Lee Nelson said. “With Cameron Fay we’ve created a world unique to Pez and a story that will touch the hearts of many.”

A long-cherished childhood tradition, PEZ is an Austrian company founded in 1927 which added heads (Santa Claus, Mickey Mouse, etc) to their dispensers in order to appeal to children during the 1950s, shortly after the product started marketing in America. Soon hunger for the multi-flavored candy was equalled by a fervor to collect the many pop culture icons embodied in the dispensers, which have included characters from DC and Marvel Comics, Peanuts, Star Wars, Star Trek, Transformers, The Wizard of Oz, NASCAR and the rock band KISS. Over 3-billion PEZ candies are consumed in the U.S. alone each year.
