HERSHEY, Pa. (AP) — If you’ve ever noticed something lacking in your kisses, you can imagine how the nation’s bakers must be feeling these days. In the case of those slaving over a hot stove, the kisses aren’t those of appreciation for a fine meal — but the chocolate kind, as in Hersey’s Kisses. No one seems to know why, but lately the candies have been showing up without their trademark pointy tips. And that has left bakers flat, many of them taking to social media to complain that the lopped-off tops of Kisses are ruining the look of their holiday treats. Hershey is aware of the complaints. But the candy maker hasn’t yet explained what is causing the Kisses to miss their tips.


OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) — A lawsuit against a Maryland beach town is making waves over who gets to go topless.

A judge has ruled that Ocean City can continue to enforce rules that ban topless women in public — even as a lawsuit challenging the ordinance continues. Officials passed the emergency ordinance in June, and several women filed suit earlier this year against the city. The woman argued it was their constitutional right to appear topless in public — just like men do.


CHICAGO (AP) — So, which beer tastes best? Most suds drinkers have a preference. But now the brewers are in a battle over the subject. And the people who referee commercials have issued a split decision in the battle. The National Advertising Division says MillerCoors can claim that its Miller Lite has “more taste” than Bud Light and Michelob Ultra. But the panel recommends Miller stop running commercials that make it appear the conclusion is based on a survey on taste preference. At issue are ads MillerCoors produced showing consumers doing a blind taste of beers — and deciding which had “more taste.” Both sides in the dispute are claiming victory in the ruling.
