There's a lot to love about marshmallows. They're sweet, squishy, and fun to eat. Marshmallows are also a classic partner for hot cocoa, one of our favorite cold weather drinks. That's why we're excited to share that Trader Joe's recently added a new treat — cocoa marshmallows — to its shelves.

But that's not all. The cocoa marshmallows are also coated with peanut butter and drizzled with chocolate. What's more, one bag costs just $3.99, according to Instagram user @traderjoeslist. There are about 18 peanut butter cocoa marshmallows in each bag.

"They are SO good," said one user on Instagram. "[I] could easily eat the whole bag." Other people agreed, calling the marshmallows "fantastic" and "delicious." Shoppers also report that the treat has a strong peanut butter flavor, which is great news if you happen to love the ingredient.


It's unclear if the Trader Joe's peanut butter cocoa marshmallows are limited-edition. So, if you're interested in trying them, be sure to visit your local store soon. You can find the nearest location on the Trader Joe's store directory.
