Removing the thin aluminum foil wrapping from a Hershey Kiss isn’t necessarily a difficult thing, but even the easiest of things can be annoying sometimes. For instance, getting chocolate under your fingernail when you’re trying to peel the wrapper off, or making a wrapper mess.
To make this first-world problem go away, simply grab a Hershey Kiss in-between your index finger and thumb, then pull on the paper plume to yank the chocolate straight out of the wrapper. The plume was originally designed to differentiate Hershey Kisses from imitation products, but it’s more useful for faster Kiss extraction.
Step 1: Hold the Tag
The first thing that you want to do is find yourself a Hershey’s Kiss and hold the tag coming out of the wrapper. Did you know that the little paper tag strip coming out of a Hershey’s Kiss actually has a name? They are called Niggly Wigglys! So a good summary of this step would be to grab the Niggly Wiggly on the Hershey’s Kiss!
Step 2: Hold Wrapper with Opposite Hand
The next step is to use your opposite hand’s thumb and index finger to hold the bottom edge surrounding the Hershey’s Kiss. Make sure that these fingers have a good grip on the candy’s wrapper.
Step 3: Pinch and Pull
Next, pinch with your thumb and index finger in your opposite hand while pulling the tag (Niggly Wiggly). Do this all at the same time and the part of the wrapper that you are using your opposite hand’s fingers to grip will come apart from the tag. The Hershey’s Kiss will actually slide out of the wrapper while the tag is quickly pulled out of the wrapper. The candy inside will now fall out of the wrapper. All of this is done in less than a second, making it one of the quickest, if not the quickest, ways to open a Hershey’s Kiss!
