"I made these and used them at each place setting. They were a huge hit."

"They have all flavors of Kisses this time of the year. I do remember a candy corn kiss last year so I'm assuming that is what we see in the photo. Good luck finding them-I'd try Target."

"This is so cute; however, the "Kiss" has me baffled. I can see where there is something for the beak but it is colored like a "Candy Corn". What am I missing?"
