I like 'em, but I don't think I can find anything wrong with too much of either.
After eating about 100 of those caramel kisses during the course of a December workday (damn Xmas office candy baskets!), I came to the conclusion that the outer chocoate shell wasn't substantial enough. There was hardly any milk chocolate taste to it. I'd improve on it by making the chocolate exoskeleton thicker and by using a less-runny variety of chocolate inside. If they could figure out a way to put put a Brach's-style caramel inside a kiss, then they'd be onto something. As it stands, the caramel kiss is more like one of those "grown up" candies they sell in fancy boxes for valentine's day.
