As the temperature drops, we’re looking for new ways to keep cozy. Starbucks lovers cracked the code on the hottest secret menu beverage of the season, and Nestle is catering to our seasonal cookie needs with this Grinch-inspired dough. But we can’t help but feel like something’s missing. Of course—it’s not winter without a steaming cup of hot cocoa!

These nostalgic candy hot chocolate blends will take your taste buds back in time. York Peppermint Patty hot cocoa and Tootsie Roll hot cocoa are here to sweeten up your holiday season.

A Classic Twist on Your Favorite Winter Weakness

If you need a sweet sipper to pair with all 40 of the new Hallmark flicks this year, York and Tootsie Roll have you covered. York’s peppermint hot cocoa mix brings together the chocolate shell and minty filling we crave right in your mug. Every box contains six pouches of the good stuff, and the mix is made with real milk to ensure a quality cuppa.

The Tootsie Roll hot cocoa comes in convenient Keurig K-cups and packs in all the chocolatey goodness you can handle. You can also snag a candy hot chocolate variety pack, which includes traditional favorites like Tootsie Rolls, Junior Mints, Sugar Babies and Charleston Chews in vanilla and strawberry flavors. If that’s not your thing, you can customize for a Tootsie Roll only box—either way, you’ll be enjoying all the best flavors of the season.
