The Ads of Christmas Past: Hershey’s Kisses (1989) “Christmas Bells”

The very definition of timeless, this ad has played over and over again for decades and still evokes that happy feeling you get when you take the wrapper off a Hershey’s Kiss. Somehow even more fun when the foil is done in Christmas colors. Enjoy this classic.

Anyone know definitively the year this ad first came out? Let us know…

    I don’t know when this ad came out, probably before I was born! But I love seeing it every single year. I love that some things never change.

    The Hersey’s archive blog states that the Christmas bell commercial was made in 1989. It has been airing ever since.

    I have looked forward to this commercial for the last 8yrs. In 2006 we got a dog in April and his 1st Christmas with us, while listening and watching this commercial he barked through it every time. It became a Christmas tradition. It just so happen when we got him he already had a name ( Hershel Red) shortend Hershey. He passed away this past yr from a heart tumor before Christmas. When this commercial came on the TV my kids and I began to cry. We miss him so much, but have this to remind us of him. I hope this commercial continues to be played every year. We now have a new puppy, who does not pay it no attention. Thank you for the memories….
