I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Hershey’s KISSES Deluxe. I received product samples to facilitate my Hershey’s KISSES Craft and review, and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
Hershey’s KISSES may be perfect for those who love chocolate or foodie gifts, but they are so full of memories for me, too. As a kid, Friday nights meant a bag of KISSES and the best TV of the week, and I remember so vividly how my mom would carefully smooth out and fold the wrapper up so neatly after she ate one. We baked cookies with KISSES and always had a fun Hershey’s KISSES craft to do. Little did I know that someday I would go to college and buy a home right near Hershey, PA, and my kids would grow up with Hersheypark as one of their favorite destinations.
I love that Hershey’s KISSES are becoming a beloved childhood memory for them, too!
Now, it’s just not a holiday season without Hershey’s KISSES. In the candy bowl, our cookies, our stockings, on our gingerbread houses. They just say love and tradition wherever they’re found, but now there’s a whole new way to say even more with the gift of Hershey’s KISSES Deluxe!
That’s right. The silver we all know and love has a bigger, nuttier friend, all dressed in gold.
KISSES Deluxe Chocolates are an extra special way to share a kiss with those you love. They’re twice the size of an original KISSES Chocolate, with a creamy chocolate center surrounding a whole roasted hazelnut, finished with delicate crisps and smooth milk chocolate. The creamy chocolate, the layers of texture and crunch, the gold wrapper – they all come together for the perfect way to “Say More” this holiday season!
So why not deliver them by hand to the ones you love? Elevate your gift, and elevate the connection they bring by taking the time to visit and spend more quality time with family and friends this holiday season. In fact, Hershey’s has a whole campaign encouraging everyone to #SayMore this season – and Hershey’s KISSES Deluxe are the perfect way to start!
Follow the #SayMore hashtag to see what others are sharing and pick up a little heartfelt inspiration for your own celebration. The way one family honored their hardworking mom brought tears to my eyes!
#SayMore this Season: Hidden Photo Hershey’s KISSES Craft
Hershey’s KISSES Deluxe already have one surprise inside, but we decided to “Say More” by adding another! There’s nothing my mom likes more than kisses from her grandchildren, so I decided to hide some kisses among her KISSES! We used our ZINK hAppy smart app printer to create some quick stickers using our best kissy-face photos, and then hid them on the bottoms of our Hershey’s KISSES Deluxe. You can’t even tell they’re in there until you pick one up – isn’t that the cutest little surprise ever!?
If you don’t have a ZINK, you can print out photos on your regular printer and simply glue them on. Just use the chocolate itself to trace the circle!
I think this is an adorable gift idea for grandparents, especially if you don’t tell them the photos are there right away. Wait and see if they notice. I bet you’ll get some huge smiles! Need a teacher gift? Maybe one for a Scout leader or daycare provider? Imagine a whole troop of smiling students under those deluxe chocolates!
