Hershey’s Kisses Are The Chicken Wings Of Chocolate

I enjoy chocolate. I enjoy chicken. When it comes to Hershey’s Kisses and chicken wings, I find that the level of effort involved to eat them isn’t quite worth it.

Is the juice worth the squeeze?

I think that Hershey’s makes a fine chocolate, but for me, it is way too involved.

  • The foil wrapping is so thin that it never comes off in one piece. I often end up with what looks like a pile of glitter after unwrapping.
  • Unwrapping a single one wouldn’t be so bad, but really, who eats just one?
  • The chocolate inside is fine, but not so great that I forget about the difficulty of the wrapping.

More sustaining than meat?

On a side note, I recently learned that an old slogan of Hershey’s was ‘More Sustaining Than Meat’.  I found that somewhat comical. But could it be true? 

Maybe there is some merit to this statement if we compare it to chicken wings for sustenance. Like the Hershey’s Kiss, I find wings too much work for too little meat.

  • To have even a single wing, a complete mess is made. 
  • I am not sure how much meat is on a wing, but it isn’t much. And only the professional wing eaters are good at getting everything off the bone.
  • To make a meal of wings, you have to eat at least a dozen of them.  When you look at a plate of ‘eaten’ wings, the plate is still a sizable looking portion of food unless you ‘ate the bones‘.
  • The people who seem to really love wings are really in it for the sauce.

To those who love both Hershey’s Kisses and wings, please continue to enjoy them. For me though, the juice isn’t quite worth the squeeze.
