(Hershey) -- Pennsylvania's most iconic chocolate maker is doubling-down on one of its most popular treats.

The Hershey Company has announced its Hershey Kisses Deluxe.

The new Kisses, on sale November 5, will be twice the size of a normal Kiss, the oversized, chocolate chips wrapped in silver foil, and feature a hazelnut center and rice crisps in the chocolate.

The bigger Kisses are wrapped in gold foil and, according to the company's website, will be packaged in quantities ranging from 3 to 75.

The three-Kiss box will cost $1; the 75-piece gift box will be $32.

The company says the innovation is the biggest since the Dauphin County-based company added almonds to the Kisses 25 years ago.
