Candy lovers breathe a sigh of relief – The Hershey Company has solved their missing tip Kiss issue, according to CNBC.
“We looked at the entire Kiss manufacturing process and made some adjustments to the tip shaping to allow us to have more consistency,” CEO Michele Buck told the news site on Thursday. .
In December, cookie bakers have posted complaints on social media on the brand’s missing tips on the chocolate pieces they used for holiday baking and cookies such as peanut butter flowers. Some have complained directly to the company.
The issue has gained national attention from media outlets such as People, Business Insider and Fox News.
At the time, Hershey said he was investigating the truncated tops.
“We love our kisses as much as our consumers” Hershey’s spokesperson Jeff Beckman told PennLive. “We make over 70 million kisses a day here in Hershey, PA, and we want each one to look as good as it tastes. “
Buck told CNBC they noticed inconsistencies in the form of the tips, but declined to provide details on the cause of the problem in the first place, only relaying that changes had been made.
Consumers could still find Kisses without a tip due to the sheer volume of candy the company produces, CNBC said.
Buck told the site that Hershey appreciated the comments and “really liked” how much bakers thought of the Kisses and their iconic shape.
