JJ's Sweets - Chocolate Covered Cocomels

While I was on vacation in Boulder, I stumbled across this random box of vegan caramels called "Cocomels" in a specialty Italian food store.  I was so shocked to see them there and even more shocked when I saw the price -- $12 for a box of six. Nevertheless, I had to try them so I bought a box. 

These caramels made by JJ's Sweets are absolutely amazing. These are some of the best vegan caramels I've ever had. I tried the Fleur de Sel flavor of their chocolate-covered coconut milk caramels, which has sea salt on top. Upon first bite, you taste the delicious chocolate, then the soft caramel, then the sea salt. It was like a party in my mouth, but no one else was invited!

These caramels are truly amazing and I can't wait to order more. The chocolate covered ones also come in vanilla, chai spice, and java flavors. They also have regular caramels (not chocolate covered) and ginger candies. Their products are sold in California and Colorado or you can order them direct from their website here. You can thank me later.

  1. I love this chocolate brand because it's very creamy and flavorful! My Concord NC dentist advised me though that I shouldn't eat too much sweets so as not to damage my teeth.
