Easter candy has a long legacy made possible by our parents’ fulfillment of Easter baskets during childhood.
Chocolate bunnies? Right on. I’ll eat the ears first, then the butt.
Cadbury eggs? I’m drooling already.
Jelly beans? Yes, please. Especially if they’re the Starbursts kind.
But every so often, someone does something that makes us question the sanctity of our sweet tooth. A few years ago, it was the evil genius who figured out putting PEEPS in the microwave would make them explode.
This year, it’s Hershey’s.
The chocolate conglomerate is releasing carrot cake Hershey’s Kisses for Easter, which is probably the most disgusting thing we’ve thought about since the Monica Lewinsky scandal. Carrot cake by itself, is unfortunately, not delicious. So why would Hershey’s think that turning them into drops of what looks like rabbit feces would be a good idea?
Fortunately, the good people at The Frisky are also upset with this news. I’m counting on them to start a petition advocating against these kisses, which you can sign on their website once they, you know, start it.
