Did you guys hear/see the story about this year's Christmas-themed Hershey's kisses missing their tips? I heard it some while ago, one of those relaxingly weird, inconsequential human-interest stories that these days I feel fortunate to catch. I promptly forgot about it until we got to my dad's house at Christmas time, and he had a bag of Hershey's Christmas-foil-wrapped kisses.

"Oh hey, I heard they all have their tips broken off--I wonder if it's true," I said. So of course FOR RESEARCH, we had to open up (and then eat--once you unwrap them they'll spoil if you don't eat them!) a number of kisses, and sure enough, they all did have their tips broken off.

So it was true! Based on evidence from one bag of kisses in upstate New York.

... Well yesterday I was in a supermarket here in western Massachusetts and they had Christmas kisses on clearance. Would their tips be broken too? Of course the spirit of inquiry required that I buy a bag. And lo and behold, so far... yes!

For reference, here is what they are supposed to look like:

See the nice point?

This NYT article reports that only the solid-chocolate kisses were affected and that Hershey's is investigating.

They look more like chocolate boobies that chocolate kisses!

What a deeply peculiar Christmas mystery!

That is a very weird thing to have happen. I wonder what the story is?

That's such a peculiar defect! There's got to be a story behind it.
