Dear Hershey's Chocolate, Inc.
You had a brilliant idea recently. You have created a lot of new flavors of Hershey's Kisses. During the 'holiday season' I discovered a particularly delightful new flavor, Cherry Cordial kisses. These are the most delicious chocolates I have eaten in years. Unfortunately, after the initial introduction they were all snapped up off the shelves within hours, and those of us who craved them could no longer buy them. During this dark time I tried other flavors like caramel and mint, but frankly, they weren't that great. They didn't have that burst of fondant flavor like the Cherry Cordials. They were overly sweet and somewhat bland.
Right before Valentines day, I was in Walgreens picking up a prescription and wandered over to the candy isle to pick up a bag of Valentine Hearts (Necco candy, right here in Boston) and what did my eyes behold. Three bags of Cherry Cordials. I snapped up those suckers with lightening speed. Me, the diabetic who is perpetually banned from sweets, hoarding chocolate. But I couldn't help it. They are seriously addicting. I brought the bags home and placed them high out of reach of my children's hands. These are for me, I told them. Within hours, one bag had already disappeared.
Later on, my son admitted that he stole the bag and brought it upstairs and ate it. I hate him. I hid one of the remaining bags downstairs, and brought the other one upstairs and hid it in my bedroom. By the next afternoon, the bag in my room had been emptied, and not by me. This time it was my daughter who was the culprit. This leaves me one measley little bag. One small bag to keep my addiction replenished until the next holiday.
Will you have them for St Patrick's Day. What about Easter? July 4th? Rosh Hashona? I need to know. I need to be able to plan ahead and save my pennies so I can buy these by the case. They are that good. While searching the web looking for places to purchase these delectable morsels, I came across a petition for your company to produce more. I concur. And I signed.
Please, Hershey's. I've been a loyal customer all my life. My family and I love your kisses, but these Cherry Cordials are beyond anything else you've ever concocted, even Peanut Butter Cups. You must make them available all year round.
