All the New Hot Cocoa Products You Need to Try This Year, From M&M's to Marshmallows
Every holiday season, a new flavor seems to take over the snack aisles in grocery stores across the country. This year, hot cocoa is the It flavor, and tons of your favorite brands are getting in on the trend. The combination of chocolate and marshmallows is an unbeatable one, and you won't need to pour yourself a mug of hot cocoa to satisfy the craving this year (although nothing quite beats the real thing). Instead, you can grab a handful of M&M's, unwrap a piece of Dove chocolate, or add a few hot-cocoa-flavored snacks to your cart at Trader Joe's. Read on to see the hot cocoa products that are "hot" this year indeed.
