(Newser) – Bakers are complaining that something is amiss with Hershey's Kisses. The chocolate candy's trademark tips have been mysteriously missing from batches around the country, the AP reports. Without their points, the chocolate candies are left with flat tops, and bakers have taken to social media to complain that the lopped-off tops are ruining the look of their holiday treats. "@Hersheys Where's quality control? Peanut butter blossoms don't deserve this. HELP!" reads one sample tweet.

The Hershey Company responded to the disgruntled bakers after hearing of a Facebook post by the Wedding Cookie Table Community group that detailed the problem. Company spokesman Jeff Beckman tells the Lebanon Daily News they're reviewing the issue. Beckman says Hershey has donated baking items to the group as a thank you for pointing out the issue. The candy company has yet to explain what's causing the missing tips. (A lawsuit claims Twizzlers are to blame for a man's heart disease.)
