Hershey's Kissables not milk chocolate

Hershey's Kissables (a candy covered chocolate mini "kiss") are no longer legally considered milk chocolate according to this link. Where the package used to say "candy coated milk chocolate", it now says "chocolate candy". If you want to eat real chocolate, it looks like looking for the phrase "milk chocolate" on the label is a good idea. It appears to me that chocolate refers to the flavor (like in tootsie rolls) and milk chocolate means it's real chocolate. I wish labeling was more clear in the US. See the above post on wheat bread.
