I stumbled upon an equation that when graphed with its reflection across the y axis looks a lot like a Hershey's Kiss
x=y^(-y)

This got me thinking about what kind of curve really describes the central cross section of a Hershey's Kiss. Does anyone happen to know this or to have done any calculations?
