Kiss of fate: The noble tale of a Hershey’s Kiss

Whew. This is what happens when it’s too late at night, you’re hungry for chocolate and you have to write a labyrinthine sentence. Here’s a 208-word sentence describing the bitter conflict between Hershey’s Kisses.

It was time, he thought proudly, time for him to demonstrate his value, for the large, looming hand of an all-powerful being had reached inside the crowded home of his family and chosen him, and only him, not any other of his family members, not those with hearts filled with cold, green mint, nor the ones scarred by caramel and vanilla war wounds, nor the ones that reeked of raspberry or cherry, nor those with faces pock-marked by cookie crumbs, but him, an authentic, pure and genuine young Hershey’s Kiss, one that was ready to assert his position in the world, one who would no longer be overshadowed or subjugated by the rest of his family, one who had found beauty in himself and wanted to show the rest of the world who he truly was for the first and last time—an original Hershey’s Kiss—because he knew he would soon be sacrificing his very life for a noble cause (and Oh, how he deeply desired to become a martyr, a symbol of hope and resilience for his fellow Originals): to fully satisfy the intense chocolate cravings of a sleep-deprived teenager and to demonstrate, once and for all, that ORIGINAL HERSHEY’S KISSES ARE THE BEST OF KISSES.

    Creatively unique to refer the kisses as if they were people with true emotions, my favorite part has to be where you state, ” to fully satisfy the intense chocolate cravings of a sleep-deprived teenager and to demonstrate. . .” My tummy very much craved a bunch of kisses then. Continue your creative writing, you have such a gift, I would love to see more of this. Kiss of Fate made my top favorites!

    I love this sentence so much! The description of chocolate makes my mouth water. I especially loved the part that reads “not those with hearts filled with cold, green mint, nor the ones scarred by caramel and vanilla war wounds, nor the ones that reeked of raspberry or cherry, nor those with faces pock-marked by cookie crumbs”. I find it funny you love chocolate so much nowadays. I remember back in 4th grade you told Mrs. Brown that you didn’t like chocolate and she told you she was going to give you a “Z-” for saying that!
