JJ’s Sweets is a candy company dedicated to making delicious treats that are not only made with natural ingredients, but are also both vegan and gluten-free. Their most notable treat? The almighty Cocomel!
Cocomels are “the original coconut milk caramels” and they are freakin’ DELICIOUS! The lil’ pieces of awesomeness are artisan-made in copper kettles using only organic/non-GMO ingredients and are 100% dairy-/gluten-free. They are also very, very addictive. (Trust me.)
I was lucky enough to try the Original Cocomels in a subscription box a few months ago, but hadn’t had a chance to try the other flavors. Needless to say, I was beyond excited when JJ’s Sweets offered to send me a sampler package for review. So. Excited.
Original Cocomels – This is where Cocomels began: A simple, classic caramel candy with a unique, creamy coconut base. While it may taste like a “regular” caramel, it’s actually a lot healthier since there’s no dairy in these guys. Instead, you get all of the good-for-you benefits of coconut oil. Woohoo!
Sea Salt Cocomels – Take the original Cocomels, add a touch of sea salt, and this is what you get. Sea Salt Cocomels! To be totally honest, I’m not a big fan of salty things, but I really couldn’t taste much difference between these and the “regular” ones. Are sea salt caramels not supposed to be noticeably “salty”? I honestly don’t know… As a longtime vegan, it’s been quite a while since I’ve eaten any “traditional” caramels. 😉
Espresso Cocomels – Woah. When I saw these I couldn’t wait to try ’em — I had no idea they even existed! Espresso flavored caramels? Heck yes! Needless to say, they were delicious. Sooo good. The perfect combo of organic espresso beans and chewy coconut milk decadence. I type this description with great sadness, as my precious Espresso Cocomels are long gone. 🙁
Vanilla Cocomels – No artificial flavorings here! These are made with pure organic vanilla extract. The result is a rich, chewy caramel bursting with sweet vanilla goodness. Mmmm!
Yep, they stretch like “real” caramel too! 😉
So after learning all about the wonder that is the Cocomel, I bet you’re wishing you had some of these glorious little morsels of your own. Yes? Wellll…
