These Famous Trader Joe’s Hot Cocoa Bombs Are Back — & They’re a Festive Spin On the TikTok Trend


Ever since those marshmallow-filled chocolate balls flooded our TikTok last year, we’ve been obsessed. They’re fun, mess-free, delicious, and oh-so-simple: You just pop a chocolate sphere in your mug, add hot milk, stir and create an instant cup of marshmallow-filled cocoa goodness. Seriously, what’s not to like? 

We’ve spotted them at Costco and at Target before, and have gone nuts for previous cocoa bombs. This year, we’re obsessing over the new Dunkin cocoa bombs and the adorable Disney ones. But now, Trader Joe’s just re-released their customer-favorite — and it doesn’t get any cuter than these classic snowman hot cocoa bombs. These snowmen don’t turn into water when melted but instead, yummy hot chocolate.

Verified Trader Joe’s fan account @traderjoeslist just posted the adorable find on Instagram, writing, “⛄️ IT’S BACK⛄️ HOT COCOA SNOWMAN • $1.99•❗️MOST STORES WILL LIMIT HOW MANY YOU CAN BUY❗️This is one of the most entertaining ways to make hot cocoa and also makes me really sad because the snowman melts, but then I drink the hot cocoa and all is good in the world! It’s a very sweet hot cocoa so hopefully, that is your thing. I am so excited to revisit this! ⛄️ ❄️ ☕️”

They ended it by asking, “Will you be adding this to your #traderjoeslist?” — and we think we know the answer.

At just $1.99 each, these make great stocking stuffers for kids. Channel your inner Oprah and say, “You get a hot cocoa bomb snowman! And you get a hot cocoa bomb snowman!” You really can’t go wrong with this gift.

By the looks of the excited Instagram comments, we don’t expect them to stay in stock very long. One comment read, “I missed out last year, I’m on my way to TJ’s!” — which basically sums up our mood this holiday season as we try to get everything on our list.
