Who doesn't love hot chocolate? These sounded really good when we bought them, but the reality was rather disappointing. Instead of tasting like our favorite chocolately winter drink, these instead tasted like old candies that had been on the shelf too long. Whatever was used to create that 'hot chocolate' flavor fell very short of the mark. Hopefully M&M's will create a new and improved hot chocolate flavor - because this one should have been a hit and wasn't. Don't waste money on these, and instead stick with old favorites like classic M&M's or peanut M&M's. At least those are delicious!
