HERSHEY, Pa. (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Bakers are complaining that something is amiss with the appearance of Hershey’s Kisses.
The chocolate candy’s trademark tips have been mysteriously missing from batches across the country. Bakers have taken to social media to complain that the lopped-off tops are ruining the look of their holiday treats. Without their points, the chocolate candies are left with flat tops.
The Hershey Company responded to the disgruntled bakers after hearing of a Facebook post by the Wedding Cookie Table Community group that detailed the problem.
Company spokesman Jeff Beckman tells the Lebanon Daily News they’re reviewing the issue. “We understand that bakers’ expectations are high for an iconic brand that is more than 100 years old because they are proud of their desserts,” he said.
Beckman says Hershey has donated baking items to the group as a thank you for pointing out the issue.
The candy company has yet to explain what’s causing the missing tips or when the problem might be corrected.
