These sweets were first released in 2018.

Hot Cocoa Kisses were Hershey's first new Kisses flavor in a decade when they showed up on shelves for the 2018 holiday season. (The last release prior to Hot Cocoa was Candy Cane Kisses in 2008.) Kisses fans were so thrilled by the new release that Hershey's decided they would bring back the chocolate candies this year.

So how do Hot Cocoa Kisses differ from classic Kisses, which are chocolate through and through? These holiday treats have a chocolate shell, but in the center, you'll find a rich marshmallow-flavored crème.

What's more, the metallic wrapping is as festive as the flavor. Instead of a solid silver or holiday color, a brown-and-white spotted design wraps each Hot Cocoa Kiss.

Other holiday flavors will come back this season, too, including Candy Cane Kisses and the limited-edition holiday kisses with green and red wrappings. Earlier this year, the candy brand announced they would also be released Kit Kat Sweet Cinnamon Miniatures and Reese's Peanut Butter Holiday Lights.

Start looking for these fan favorites this week, as supermarkets and drug stores begin moving holiday sweets onto shelves. You can also buy bags at Walmart and Amazon.
