In just one? Not enough to not eat it in my book! ha! In all seriousness, why not take the calories per serving and divide by how many is in a serving?

How Many Calories in a Kiss?

If you're talking about a Hershey-style kiss, according to Diet Power's Food Dictionary it contains 26 calories. More than half of those calories come from fat. But since most of the fat is unsaturated and the chocolate

contains only smidgens of cholesterol and sodium, it can almost be considered a health food.

If you mean the other kind of kiss, however, it's only one calorie -- or, rather, minus one. That's because a kiss,

like any other form of exercise, burns calories instead of adding them to the larder. (The one-calorie figure is only an estimate. Some of the nerds in my office are looking for a graduate student in physiology who might want to measure it more precisely for her master's thesis.)

You won't find "kissing" in Diet Power's Exercise Log, but you will find another popular activity that kissing sometimes leads to. You-Know-What burns between 3 and 12 calories per minute, depending on your weight and the, uh, level of enthusiasm.

SORRY, OP here! I didn't even notice my mis-spelling at first! Jeeze, it's been a long day already! Thank you very much for the info! I would've divided one kiss from the serving size, but all I had was 1 kiss in front of me w/out the was a tiny gift. And, very just made me want more! Guess I'll have to wait til I get home to my husband & we can kiss the hershey kiss calories away! Thanks again!
