Today’s junk food: Birthday Cake Hershey Kisses!!


Birthday Cake Hershey Kisses were discussed on this week’s episode of the Nosh Show. You’d think Birthday Cake flavor was played out a few years ago, but nooooope. Hershey’s Kisses have tackled the favorite.


Birthday Cake Hershey Kisses feature white “chocolate” (or maybe just a general white confection) that is birthday cake flavored and loaded with “colored cookies.” Huh? Is this going to be like the Cookies and Creme crunchy bits? Is there one big ass cookie piece inside?



So many ingredients inside these Birthday Cake Hershey Kisses! LOOK AWAY!


As soon as I opened this bag of Birthday Cake Hershey Kisses, I could smell the vanilla icing / birthday cake aroma pouring out of the hole. SUPER strong smell. Sweet aromas tickling my brain. They certainly smelled the part.


Birthday Cake Hershey Kisses are beautiful – pure off-white color, perfectly formed, with purple and pink bits embedded under the surface. I bit into one…


…and CONFIRMATION: these Birthday Cake Hershey Kisses are really really good!

The pink and purple bits were cookies crunchy bits – as I chewed through the soft Hershey’s white confection (definitely more confection than white chocolate), the bits crunched nicely like tiny pieces of cookie. Because of the color, it was almost like I was chewing on candy sprinkles, but the carb-y crunch was definitely there.

The flavor was spot-on – that overly vanilla cake icing flavor was unmistakable. Although these days with soooo many companies doing birthday cake flavor, I guess it’s not too hard to get it right (there’s so many comparators).

The flavor of the confection PLUS the cookie bits definitely resulted in a pretty perfect birthday cake flavor. I thought I’d dislike these because I was over birthday cake flavor. I was wrong. These are damn good. Go find. Buy. And enjoy your Labor Day!

Marvo knows what's on shelves before anyone. ANYONE. Our trusty leader on The Nosh Show.

Ryan is the fast food guru. His soft dulcet tones will make you want to eat french fries, immediately.

Dubba is an ice cream wizard. He's got two spoons and he's not afraid to use them. Unless it's something spicy.

Chris is an IG god, and knows his stuff. Plus, he's from Maryland. What's not to like?
