Hershey’s Kisses were introduced by the Hershey Company in 1907. After over 100 years of circulation, Hershey’s Kisses have become an American icon. Hershey’s Kisses are enjoyed by people of all walks of life and all ages. A Hershey’s Kiss is immediately identifiable by its unique shape, foil and plume (paper that extends from the wrapper). Although it is not officially known how Hershey’s Kisses got their name, it is believed that they were named for the sound of the chocolate being deposited during the manufacturing process. All this makes it a natural for it’s transformation into a piece of jewelry. Jewelry is usually gifted to a loved one. What better way to show someone you love them than with a “Kiss”?
