Vintage tin advertising for Hershey’s Chocolate Kisses. The bite-sized pieces of chocolate have a distinctive conical shape, sometimes described as flat-bottomed teardrops..
When first manufactured in 1907, Hershey’s Kisses were wrapped by hand. In 1921, a machine was used so the Kisses would be wrapped automatically. This machinery also added the paper plume or paper strip flag to the aluminium foil wrapper to identify Hershey’s Kisses, replacing the original small square of printed tissue that was inside the foil wrapper.
