Why is the paper in a Hersheys kiss called a niggly wiggly?

It's actually called a paper plume. "Niggly wiggly" is just a slang term someone came up with.

because why the hell not? don't judge, it's not like it chose the name.

Everywhere researchable says it was the owners decision. Nothing confirms a paper plume as a name, actually spelled papier plume, which yes is an old feathered pen.

You are right, but just be careful. The word "plume" is also another word for a feather pen, so make sure anytime you use the word, you give a clear context.
