There is something so comforting about drinking hot chocolate on a cold winter day. It’s even better when it’s Hershey’s chocolate.

You might be surprised at how many products Hershey’s makes and how many things can and have been done with chocolate. In 2022, the company is introducing a product that frankly I’m sure a lot of us have been waiting for.

Hershey’s is finally adding hot chocolate bombs to its repertoire. I feel like this one is a bit on the nose because the company is most known for chocolate. Regardless, these products are already hitting shelves among many other delightful new products.

If you’re interested in the hot chocolate bombs, then you’re in luck as I was able to snag one and I’ve been dying to share my thoughts.

Are the Hershey’s Hot Chocolate Bombs a dud or a delight?

Let me start this off by saying that there are actually two options when it comes to the company’s hot chocolate bombs. The first option is Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Hot Chocolate Bomb which is a chocolate ball with hot cocoa and marshmallows inside. The other option is Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Hot Chocolate Bomb with Cinnamon Flavor which is the same thing but this time, the marshmallows are replaced with cinnamon-flavored chips.

Since I’m not a big cinnamon fan, I decided to go with the original and followed the instructions on the box which are to put the bomb in the cup, warm up some milk, pour it over the bomb and watch the magic happen. While it did take a minute or so, the magic did eventually happen and I was left with a warm cup of hot cocoa.

I’m sure you’re wondering how it tasted and I will say that it was good but not anything life-changing. As a Pennsylvania native, I’m partial to Hershey’s chocolate so no shade at the company, but I was slightly disappointed. I suppose I was looking for a stronger chocolate flavor and it was just normal hot chocolate. Maybe my expectations were just too high but with that being said, it wasn’t bad and I thoroughly enjoyed my cup of hot chocolate.

Whether you’re disappointed or just don’t love hot cocoa, there are plenty of other items to choose from Hershey’s holiday lineup. Some of the highlights include Hershey’s Kisses wrapped in Grinch foil, Reese’s Christmas trees, and even, a Grinch Hershey’s Kisses gift box. All in all, you really can’t go wrong with gifting some Hershey’s this year.
