M&M’s has had quite the year. Between their nationwide vote for the new peanut M&M’s flavor and re-launching delicious flavors like pecan pie, M&M’s doesn’t shy away from creativity. And with the holiday season finally upon us, they are yet again bringing the sweetness to the season: Hot Cocoa M&M’s are back for 2019!
That’s right, if you think there’s not enough hot chocolate to go around, then you may as well buy a hot chocolate candy to go with it! M&M’s coziest flavor is officially on shelves and it’s full of winter happiness.
What’s on the inside?
We all know that the trick to a delicious hot chocolate is the marshmallow pairing, so M&M’s made that a priority in the candy’s center. M&M’s Hot Cocoa flavor has a milk chocolate and white chocolate marshmallow-flavored center. Looking at the package, the chocolates are streaked through, looking like a steaming mug of hot chocolate and melted marshmallows right in your candy. The outer shell comes in a brown and white candy coating, to symbolize the two prominent flavors.
The flavor is super similar to the Hot Cocoa Hershey’s Kisses. However, the Kisses are filled with a marshmallow flavored crème instead of a hard chocolate center, so it’s a whole different type of hot chocolate experience. Either way, both candies sound like the perfect pairing to a steamy cup of hot cocoa this holiday season.
