The Dunkin’ Hot Chocolate Bombs have officially returned to store shelves in time for the holiday season.
What are Dunkin’ Hot Chocolate Bombs?
A collaboration between Dunkin’ and confections and gifts marketer Frankford Candy, the Dunkin’ Hot Chocolate Bombs were first launched in 2021 with two flavors: original and mint. To warm up a cold winter day, simply place a “bomb” in a mug, pour six ounces of hot milk over it, and watch it transform into a rich, creamy, decadent hot chocolate holiday treat.
Both the original and mint flavors are back this year by popular demand, along with the launch of two new varieties, namely Dunkin’ Dunkaccino Hot Chocolate Bomb and Dunkin’ Spicy Hot Chocolate Bomb.
Inspired by the signature Dunkin’ coffee Dunkaccino, the Dunkin’ Dunkaccino Hot Chocolate Bomb is a coffee- and hot chocolate-flavored Belgian milk chocolate exterior that contains mini marshmallows inside. The Dunkin’ Spicy Hot Chocolate Bomb, meanwhile, is a decadent Belgian milk chocolate shell that features hints of spice and mini marshmallows inside.
Where to buy Dunkin’ Hot Chocolate Bombs
The Dunkin’ Dunkaccino Hot Chocolate Bomb is available at H-E-B, Rite Aid, and Ross Dress for Less stores across the country, while the Dunkin’ Spicy Hot Chocolate Bomb can be found at H-E-B, Ross Dress for Less, and Hy-Vee locations nationwide.
Additionally, fans can find the original Dunkin’ Hot Chocolate Bomb at CVS, Walgreens, and Ross Dress for Less stores nationwide, and the Dunkin’ Mint Hot Chocolate Bomb at Target stores.
All four flavors are available at a suggested retail price of $3.99 each and are also available online at FrankfordCandy.com and Amazon.
Dunkin’ Box O’ Chocolates
The two new flavors of Dunkin’ Hot Chocolate Bomb debuted alongside the new Dunkin’ Box O’ Chocolates. Another collaboration between Dunkin’ and Frankford Candy, this box of holiday treats features 12 individually wrapped donut-shaped filled chocolates in three fan-favorite Dunkin’ flavors:
- Boston Kreme: A milk chocolate shell with the smooth and delicious chocolate and vanilla cream filling combination of a classic Boston cream pie.
- Brownie Batter: A milk chocolate shell with a rich and decadent Brownie Batter-flavored cream filling, inspired by Dunkin’s popular Valentine’s Day limited-time donut.
- Chocolate Creme: A white chocolate shell with a milk chocolate cream filling for a perfectly balanced bite.
Packaged in a box that looks like the iconic Dunkin’ MUNCHKINS Donut Hole Treats box, the chocolates are available at Walmart, Target, Publix, Kroger, Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid, and Five Below stores at a suggested retail price of $6.99 per box. The sweet treats can also be found online at FrankfordCandy.com and Amazon.
“The Dunkin‘ brand is beloved for its delicious variety of donuts and beverages enjoyed by people throughout the day,” said Molly Jacobson, director of business development at Frankford Candy, in a press release. “Now when the Dunkin‘ craving strikes, fans can find some of their favorite flavors in the candy aisle. Our new Dunkin‘ Box O’ Chocolates and Dunkin‘ Hot Chocolate Bomb varieties are perfect for a simple pick-me-up treat or for sharing or gifting while supplies last this holiday season.”
For Dunkin’s part, Brian Gilbert, the coffee and donut chain’s vice president of retail business development, said: “We’re thrilled to partner with Frankford Candy again this holiday season to bring America’s beloved donut flavors in new donut flavor-filled chocolates. Back by popular demand, Dunkin‘ beverage-inspired seasonal Hot Chocolate Bomb varieties will include two new flavors and will surely excite fans.”
