It's not even Halloween yet, but we're already thinking of the holidays...and so is Target. The company's holiday preview included the fact that Hot Cocoa M&Ms are officially coming back to stores, y'all!
Along with the rest of its holiday line-up, these will be found in waves starting November 1, but depending on your store, you could even spot them sooner. They'll run you about $3.19 depending on your location. In addition to these M&Ms, you can also pick up Hershey’s Hot Cocoa Kisses in stores if you're really on a hot cocoa kick. And you know you are.

Pumpkin season is officially dead to us until next year, which means it's peppermint and hot chocolate time, y'all! Target knows what's up, as they are carrying Hot Cocoa M&Ms starting in November. And not only are they carrying them—no other store is.
Delish: Eat Like Every Day’s the Weekend
Target dropped the chocolate-y news at their 2018 holiday preview last week, alongside the revelations that are Ghirardelli Toffee Cookie Crunch, Lindt Snickerdoodle, Reese’s Santa’s Helpers, and Dove Hot Cocoa (all things that will also exclusively be carried at Target this year).
Back to the matter at hand, though:the M&Ms. Turns out M&Ms that are hot cocoa-flavored are milk chocolate, as usual, but they also have a white chocolate marshmallow-flavored center. The bag you see above contains both brown and white M&Ms, both of which are marshmallow-white when you bite into them.
Not that you bite M&Ms into halves before eating them, right? That would be weird. Like, far be it from me to judge your M&M-eating ways, but that would be entirely weird. But whatever.
