Whether you call it a blossom cookie or a kiss cookie, there’s something off this year if you use Hershey Kisses.
The company has been nipping the tips off the iconic chocolate, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Members of The Wedding Cookie Table Community on Facebook brought the issue to light.
Laura Magone of Monongahela runs the group that includes more than 10,000 people.
She told the PG that a member first posted about the nipped Kiss tips.
That member wrote that the company said the missing tips was intentional.
When Magone bought her own bags of Kisses, she, too, noticed the missing tips.
So she called Hershey’s and got the same response — the company did it on purpose.
“I told her she had to be kidding that she thought I would believe that,” Magone said.
In the Facebook group, others have shared similar frustrations of missing Kiss tips.
“Hershey, quit being jagoffs and fix the tips on our kisses,” one user wrote.
Members don’t believe Hershey’s answer.
“My first blush reaction was, ‘what Hershey? You’ve been doing this way longer than any of us have been making cookies,’” Tamsen Mongelli DiBlasio, formerly of Pittsburgh, told the PG.
And as PG writer Gretchen McKay wrote, “If hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, heaven help the chocolate maker who runs afoul of a disgruntled cookie maker.”
Jeff Beckman, a spokesman for Hershey, said the company “is now looking at the issue.”
The company is reaching out to members of the Facebook group to offer gifts.
But DiBlasio said she wants an intact Hershey Kiss.
“We don’t want a defective product,” she said.
