Seasonal Candy Available Now - For OLoGuadalupe Later

I have always really loved this Our Lady of Guadalupe treat idea from Tiffany at Family at the Foot of the Cross.  These Hershey Kisses she recommends in blue foil with white stars were generally only available in a military tribute promotion in the past and are hard to find.  So when I saw a local store carrying a variety of Hershey candies in summer seasonal assortments (think 4th of July) I was thrilled. There were several different Hershey brands (Kiss, Miniature, and Reese's) packaged in blue foil with white/silver stars. There are quite reminiscent of the blue mantle and stars on the OL of Guadalupe image. So if these are available where you are too, this summer, it would be a good time to buy some to save for her feast day in December.

Edited to add (Oct. 1, 2016): I am now seeing more candies (at Walmart) which were available for the Olympics with the stars and stripes theme.  Get them while they are still available.

  1. The striped kisses make a wonderful Divine Mercy treat too! I'm going to go grab some while the are still available.

  2. Great idea! And I suppose you could save the red and white stripes for Christmas, eh? Or... just eat them during nap time. ;) Love it!

    1. Yes or s great St. Nicholas day option too. Thanks for the idea.
