Hey there, have you noticed how BBQ Hot Pocket commercials are all over the TV these days? It’s like they’re the big stars of snack food! But, guess what? If you’ve tried to buy one at the store, you might have hit a snag. They’re kinda like hidden treasures now. Some folks even think they’ve vanished for good!
So Many Flavors, Where’s BBQ?
Now, Hot Pockets aren’t missing from the stores. Oh no, there’s like a mini Hot Pocket festival happening right there in the frozen food aisle. From Philly cheesesteak to meatballs & mozzarella and the ever-awesome four-cheese pizza, you’ve got choices. Oh, and let’s not forget, they come in two types of crusts: the buttery croissant one and the crunchy crispy one.
Are BBQ Hot Pockets Discontinued?
Okay, here’s the scoop: BBQ Hot Pockets have kinda sorta been discontinued. But hold on, don’t cry! You can still find them, kinda like a foodie treasure hunt. Some grocery stores and those quick-stop places still have ’em. And hey, you can even go online and find them on Amazon or eBay. Yep, they’re like rare Pokémon cards but tastier!
So you’re probably wondering, “Why did they pull a disappearing act?” Well, nobody’s really saying. It’s a mystery, like why socks go missing in the laundry. One guess is that maybe BBQ wasn’t the coolest kid in the Hot Pocket playground.
It might not have sold as well as, say, the meatball one. Or maybe it’s a summer thing, and it got benched when summer ended.
Another thought? Maybe Hot Pockets wanted to make room for some new yummy flavors. But, whatever the reason, it’s a bummer for us BBQ fans, right?
What Are The Discontinued BBQ Hot Pocket Flavors?
You might be wondering what exactly went away when BBQ Hot Pockets got discontinued. Well, it wasn’t just one kind—there were a bunch! Here’s the list:

- Philly Steak and Cheese Hot Pockets (yep, even that one!)
But don’t be too sad. Even though these BBQ flavors are gone, there are tons of other Hot Pockets still hanging around in the frozen section. We’re talking about the classic Philly Cheesesteak, Meatballs & Mozzarella, and Four-Cheese Pizza, to name just a few.
