FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

On Tuesday, July 18, 2006, the Hershey's Kissmobile Cruiser will be making a special stop at UNM Children's Hospital. The Kissmobile crew and the Hershey's Kiss character mascot will visit the children and hand out coloring books, crayons, and bandanas. Hershey's kisses and new Hershey's Kissables will also be handed out to the hospital staff and patients.

The crew will show educational videos on the Kissmobile entertainment center. The videos explain how Hershey's Kisses are made, how the Kissmobile was built and information about Hershey's founder-Milton Hershey.

Children can also play "The Great Kiss Race," an audience participation game between three animated Hershey's Kisses. The game is displayed on a plasma TV and allows children to root for their favorite Hershey's Kiss as it races to the finish line.

The Kissmobile Cruiser will be at the Hospital from 10 a.m. until noon in the VIP parking lot just north of UNM Hospital's main entrance.
