It’s practically a triangle. It’s silver tin foil makes me think of the tin man from The Wizard of Oz. It’s a craving that no one can resist when just inches in front of you. The wrapper crinkles as I peel it away. The scent of it trails up through my noise and it smells like a bottle of Nesquik chocolate milk. Its smushed point melts onto the tips of my fingers as I place it on my tongue. It’s as rich as a block of fudge. My teeth sink into the surface and feel the creamy texture coat the roof of my mouth. The object is like a spoonful of brown sugar, sweet and brown. It’s a gift that every little kid wants to have, a piece of candy....a hershey kiss.
