Someone commented recently about all the candy she found with no high-fructose corn syrup in it (thank you!) I haven’t had time to verify all of them but the one I did look at was Hershey’s Kisses – no hfcs of any kind! I say that that way because sometime HFCS is labelled as “modified food starch,” so it can be difficult to tell.
I’m not surprised there is no HFCS in Hershey’s Kisses, as they are not chewy or gummy in texture. In fact, adding hfcs would probably ruin the texture in the case of that product because of its properties. And not all Hershey products are free of HFCS, as Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup lists “highp-fructose corn syrup” as its first ingredient!
So be sure to check each different type of candy/Halloween candy you want to buy if you are looking to avoid HFCS. Just because one item within a brand is free of it, it doesn’t mean they all are!
In the meantime, yay for Hershey’s Kisses being made from mostly just chocolate and sugar!
