Nothing is as exciting as a good “first.” Think back to:

Your first car. (What are all these BUTTONS?!)
Your first kiss. (Was that a tongue?!)
Your first pumpkin spice product of the year. (What’s going on in my pants?!)

Ladies and gentlemen, my first official pumpkin spice sighting of 2016 occurred on the 28th of July. The lucky product were these Hershey’s Kisses Pumpkin Spice. I know these are released every year, but it’s the kickoff of the wonderful season of Pumpkin Spice Everything.

Are you tired of it all? Not Junk Banter. The first pumpkin spice sighting of each year is just as exciting as the first time I had sex, except this actually feels good.

Hershey's Kisses Pumpkin Spice

So good.

Hershey’s Kisses are a classic. I like to keep them in a candy dish in my office so my coworkers can share. That way, I feel better about the fact that I’ve been eating chocolate all alone at my desk all morning. Plain milk chocolate doesn’t interest me, though. The ones with almonds? Every now and then. But slap the words “pumpkin spice” on it? Excuse me while I excuse myself.

Hershey’s Kisses Pumpkin Spice

Our first pumpkin spice product of the year contains no actual pumpkin spices. Hershey’s Kisses Pumpkin Spice are made with sugar and pumpkin spice chemicals. These contain no milk chocolate like regular Kisses. They possess a glossy & stiff orange exterior protecting a softer, white center.

There’s nothing subtle about these pumpkin spice chemicals. They’re heavy with all the iconic flavors of fall, though I’d say they call to mind cinnamon and nutmeg more than the others.

What’s admirable about Hershey’s Kisses Pumpkin Spice are that the earthy, spice additions help ground the sweetness inherent to the brand. This is exactly what I found so endearing about the Hershey’s Kisses Carrot Cake. While these are just as flavorful as the carrot cake ones, the white filling better mimics the icing on a cake than it does a pumpkin spice whatever.

In the realm of all things pumpkin spice, Hershey’s Kisses Pumpkin Spice are still pretty aggressive. Proceed with caution if pumpkin spice isn’t something you adore. Then get the f*ck off my blog because you’re not welcomed here for the next three months.

In summary, pumpkin spice is back!!!
