MY THOUGHTS:
I love Hershey’s products any time of the year but I will agree that they can be really special around Christmastime.  I have made crafts with Hershey Kisses in the past, created gift baskets/jars with Hershey’s candies, and now I will be stuffing my son’s stocking with Hershey’s candies.  I love that they came out with special Christmas packaged items, which makes for a special touch.
I absolutely love the Rolo Reindeer Cane and Cookies ‘N’ Crème Nutcracker Moulded Bar for stockings and the Reese Peanut Butter Bells and Seasonal Kisses Santa Hats are great for little gifts.  All of the Hershey products though are really so versatile and for chocolate lovers especially they are awesome to cook with and share!  I will say though I am not a big chocolate fan and I make an exception for chocolate, especially Hershey’s, at Christmastime!
