Taste test: This aerated chocolate version of Kisses came with each Kiss in a silver foil wrapper bearing a pattern of various sized brown circles, with the words "Air Delight" in red on the paper pull tab.
With the wrapper removed, the Kisses looked the same as the original version, but upon biting in, the texture was clearly much softer. The outside shell of each Kiss appeared to be the regular, non-aerated chocolate, but the filling clearly looked different, as it had lots of small air bubbles inside, giving it a creamier, less solid feel. Some of our tasters couldn't taste much difference from the original Kisses (which might have been Hershey's point in making these) while others noticed the softer, airier feel while finding that the chocolate tasted the same. In both cases, our snackers liked these, and in some cases they liked them a whole lot.
