Oh, Happy Day! I recently found out that some of my all time favorite candies are now featured in hot cocoa form and I have been jumping for joy ever since. If you have a sweet tooth like me, and a single pod brewer, you are going to jump for joy too over new Tootsie Roll Hot Cocoa K-Cups!

Tootsie Roll K-Cups



Available in 6 flavors:

Tootsie Roll
Junior Mints
Charleston Chew Chocolate Nougat
Charleston Chew Vanilla
Charleston Chew Strawberry
Sugar Daddy

The kids and I couldn't wait to tear into them, so when the shipment came we had a little hot cocoa tasting party. I have always made my hot cocoa with milk, so I was a little concerned the cocoas were going to taste a little watery if made in the Keurig. So, how did they taste?

Tootsie Roll- Out of all of the 6 that we tried, I only had a slight watery tasting issue with the Tootsie Roll flavored pod, but it was still pretty good. I did end up opening up the pod and dumped some of the remnants into my mug to add a boost of flavor. I don't know if you are supposed to do that or not, but will say it gave it more of the Tootsie Roll flavor I was hoping for when I did it that way.

The Sugar Babies and Junior Mint cocoas tasted exactly like their candy counterparts, with Junior Mints being my favorite. While the other pods only smelled like normal hot cocoa as they were brewing, the Junior Mints had an amazing peppermint aroma during brewing. The Sugar Babies had the signature caramel flavor you know and love them for, and when combined with a cocoa flavor, it's plain scrumptious!

The Charleston Chew flavors were all fun to drink too. You can definitely taste the difference in the strawberry, vanilla and chocolate varieties. My kids loved all 3, but the Chocolatey Nougat won out as their favorite among all the flavors that we tested that day.

Tootsie Roll Hot Cocoa

Most of us grew up loving the Tootsie Roll brand of candies, so to me, it was a real treat getting to savor them in a whole new way! And getting to share them with my girls made me feel like a kid again, letting me reminisce about the good old days of dirty knees and penny candy. 

If you are a fan of these classic candies, you are going to want to try the cocoa for yourself! You can pick up a 40 count sampler Tootsie Roll Hot Cocoa Pack on Amazon now! Please note that these are NOT compatible with Keurig 2.0 machines.

  17. Oh those all sound so very good but I don'6t have the machine that uses a k-cup.

Definitely worth a try!
