Hershey’s Record-breaking String?

February 23, 2010

I don’t know the world record is for Longest Paper String Attached to a Hershey’s Kiss (or even if such a record exists), but I’m pretty certain this one is the winner:


We had a kiss in our bag that had a 20-inch paper string attached to it! I conveniently placed a normal kiss, with the paper string barely sticking out of the foil wrapper, next to it for comparison.

Crazy, I’m telling you. I should get the Consumerist on this.

    I was wondering that same question if such a record is even real. I also have a string probably just as long and i saved that little kiss as well.
    I’m not sure if yours is a regular milk chocolate kiss, and if so then i’m sure yours is a record for sure. But mine on the other hand is of the Kiss with Almonds variety. I wonder if these are actually worth anything?

      I hope they’re worthless, Michael, because we threw ours away some time ago. 🙂 But if they are worth something, best of luck with yours. (Oh, and yes, ours was regular milk chocolate.)
