Hershey’s Holiday Treats

December 6, 2010 by  
Filed under Product Reviews

With the holidays only weeks away, I find myself thinking about family get togethers and preparing for Santa’s arrival.   As a child, I looked forward to waking up on Christmas morning and finding that presents were left under the tree, and my stocking was stuffed.  It was inevitable that I woke up well before my parents were ready, so they always allowed me to have my stocking, while I waited for them to get up.

My stocking was one of those things I looked forward to the most.  I had the kind that stretched to two times it’s length, which allowed for maximum stuffing.  I found things like flavored lip gloss, things for my hair, and plenty of sweet treats.  Among my favorites were the big plastic candy canes that had Hershey’s Kisses in them all wrapped in shiny red and green foil.  To this day, I always buy them for the holidays and keep a small dish filled with them.  They are always included in the stockings that Santa leaves for the boys.

This year Hershey’s has great stocking stuffers to help fill those stockings with classic favorites and some new holiday treats this year.  Favorites such as Hershey’s Kisses,and new sweet treats like   Hershey’s Cookies ‘N’ Crème Santas,   Hershey’s Kisses Brand Solid Milk Chocolate Santa Hat,  Rolo Reindeer Cane, and  Hershey’s Pot of Gold Truffles Sampler.   Even if it isn’t a stocking you are filling, you can have little treat stations around your house for entertaining or just because.  I have fun little Santa dishes set up around our house with Hershey’s Kisses and Rolos.

We had the chance to try some of their newest additions and we loved the  Hershey’s Cookies ‘N’ Creme Santas (I had mine with a class of milk  yummy!), and our favorite classic Rolos which my boys ate most of.  Some of these will surely be included in their stockings on Christmas morning.  Hershey’s has always been in my family as some of our favorite brand treats, so you can’t go wrong with about anything you try.

This year The Hershey Company would like to treat one of my readers to a holiday stocking filled with a variety of festive and yummy treats, so you can create your own sweet memories this year!

    I would love to try the Hershey’s Pot Of Gold Assortment. My mom always kept a bowl of the reg, green, and silver Hershey’s Kisses on the table during the holidays. She also made fudge using Hershey’s bars in it. A couple of years she bought me the huge Hershey’s Kiss (5 lbs) that I thought I would never finished but that I did in record time.
