REVIEW: Strawberry Ice Cream Cone Hershey’s Kisses

Limited Edition Strawberry Ice Cream Cone Hershey s Kisses Pouch

What are Strawberry Ice Cream Cone Hershey’s Kisses?

Hershey’s newest Kiss is a straightforward take on a classic summer sweet -— a strawberry ice cream cone. The package suggests that it is “strawberry flavored creme and cookies.” See, the cookies are little crunchy bits meant to mimic “cone,” and the strawberry flavored creme… well, you get it.

How are they?

Delightful. Though the smell made me a little leery with its plastic artificialness (think “lip gloss being marketed to 6-year-old girls”), the taste was exactly what you’d expect -— a Hershey’s Kiss engineered to invoke strawberry ice cream. (In a cone, even.)

The strawberry tastes less artificial than the smell would lead you to believe. The crunch of the cookie bits provides a nice textural contrast from the creme’s silkiness. They are sweet, but it’s subtle.

These things are weirdly flesh-colored. So, yeah, sorry for pointing that out, but once I realized it, I couldn’t unsee it. Therefore, if you have an aversion to flesh-colored foods, you’ll probably want to pass. (Is that an actual thing? Probably. I feel like everything is a thing these days.)

Conclusion:

These Kisses remind me of the Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream Bars we could buy at lunch during elementary, middle, and high school. If you like those — or at least want to relive the glory days that were your middle school years — you’ll likely enjoy these, too. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to find my No Fear shirts.

  1. They should had used waffle cone pieces than just cookies.

    Or they could do stroopwafel flavor next. Waffle pieces mixed with caramel kisses

  2. DISCLAIMER. Not all human skin tones are pink. You refer to stereotypical Caucasian flesh tones. Just sayin’. The original Hershey’s Kisses could also be called flesh colored, no? Keeping it honest.

    1. Fair point! The original are definitely flesh-colored as well. I think it’s just less noticeable because they’ve been around forever so they’re the standard.

      1. This is why people of different backgrounds/experiences/etc., in all aspects of life, and the related public discourse done in a helpful, educative, and non-condemning fashion (at least initially) is a good thing. 🙂

        Having said that and back on the product, good to see that they taste good–in the pics, they look eerily wax-like and almost scary.

  3. This is a nice community, feedback in a civil tone. And Holly, I also nominate you for marketing and product development. You’re a true food savant, among other reviewers on this site. I want to try some of the things you think up. ;-D

      1. Yes the vibe is curated, the moderators don’t allow things to say that go against a certain line of thinking. In a sane world you’d have pushback for the non-scientifically based banning of taking photos in stores.

  4. These will be great for the pretzel/Kiss/M&M creations. The bubblegum pink will make them appear all the more appropriate for Spring. I have been meaning to grab a bag of these so I’m glad to see they got a good review.

  5. Wish the Hershey Company would spend a little more and pivot their recipes from “white creme” to “white chocolate” for these types of products. Cocoa butter > Vegetable Oil.

  6. Hmmmm–I didn’t think of that. Subtle censorship. I can see where the species is heading. Soon we will be required to carry documentation of our COVID status. Let’s see if that comment get thru?!
