To save foil for the war effort in 1942, The Hershey Company halted the production of KISSES Candy.
To celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the KISSES Candy brand on July 7, 2007, the world’s largest KISSES Candy was created in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Wrapped in silver foil with a proportionally large plume, it weighed 30,540 pounds, more than twice the previous chocolate candy world record of 15,026 pounds.
Another record was broken in 2003, when the longest consecutive string of KISSES Candies measured more than 4 miles. The event took place to raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network at Penn State Children’s Hospital.
