Inspired by fan-favorite Dunkin’ hot chocolate flavors, the new Dunkin’ Hot Chocolate Bomb™ and Dunkin’ Mint Hot Chocolate Bomb™ will be available at retail locations this holiday season
BOSTON and PHILADELPHIA (November 9, 2021) – It’s the bomb! Dunkin’ and Frankford Candy, a leader in the licensed confections and gifts industry, are teaming up this holiday season to bring two of Dunkin’s most popular hot chocolate flavors to the local candy aisle. The new Dunkin’ Hot Chocolate Bomb™ and the Dunkin’ Mint Hot Chocolate Bomb™ are rolling out beginning this month and will be available nationwide for a limited time at select retailers and online.
Available in two mouth-watering flavors, these hot chocolate bombs are sure to add delicious excitement to every holiday celebration. The Dunkin’ Hot Chocolate Bomb™ features a Belgian milk chocolate exterior, while the Dunkin’ Mint Hot Chocolate Bomb™ features a mint-flavored Belgian milk chocolate exterior. Both contain mini marshmallows inside. Just place the “bomb” in a mug, pour six ounces of hot milk over it and watch it transform into a rich, creamy, decadent, flavorful hot chocolate holiday treat.
“Hot chocolate has always been a top drink to cozy up with and enjoy on a cold day,” said Molly Jacobson, director of business development at Frankford Candy. “Because Dunkin’ is a favorite daily destination for hot and cold beverages of all types, including hot chocolates, we’re excited to work with Dunkin’ to give fans a new and surprising way to experience their favorite Dunkin’ hot chocolates and transport them into the holiday spirit at home.”
