York Peppermint Patty Hot Chocolate Is 2020’s New Winter Drink

The temperature is still dropping as we enter a new year, and that means nice, hot drinks are an excellent choice of beverage. Usually, a cold day drink staple would be a big cup of hot chocolate, but this year there is a more versatile choice as well.

This year, the peppermint and chocolate candy York peppermint patty, will also be available in drink form. Customers will be able to visit their local grocery stores and major retail stores and pick up a box of York peppermint patty hot cocoa mix, to make a pretty much instant cup of peppermint hot cocoa in their home.

Right now, the new drink is available exclusively at Walmart stores nationwide. The new peppermint hot cocoa flavor is available in two packages. One is the package of six individual pouches of peppermint hot cocoa which has a retail price of about $2.93. The other version is a package of ten individual pouches of K-Cups of peppermint hot cocoa, and all you have to do is add water.

Social media users who have already spotted and tried out the new flavor say that is tastes just like a York peppermint patty, although some reviews place it as tasting more dark chocolate than milk chocolate. Many reviewers recommend making the hot drink with milk instead of water, for a more filling and satisfying York peppermint patty flavor.

This new product, created by Hershey’s, has actually been around since 2018, when the brand created a few candy-inspired hot cocoa choices. However, this York peppermint patty flavor seems to be all the rage this winter holiday season. Interested customers can also find it at Hy-Vee stores as well as online at In some areas, you can even find it through Instacart.

Just add a few marshmallows to the cup or a big dollop of whipped cream and maybe some chocolate shavings and you have the makings of a delicious dessert drink.
