Why are Cocomels vegan?

    I want it all! Well, what I mean is that I don’t believe you have to compromise between a delicious, mind-blowing, mouthgasm-inducing treat and it being better-for-you and the planet. Sure, it makes it harder to do both – the more natural something is, the more it’s prone to variability, a shorter shelf life and difficulty cooking it in large quantities – but I believe these are challenges worth taking on.

Vegan Chocolate Covered Cocomel Bites - NEW product launch by JJ's Sweets

“We think we’ve found the best Cocomel experience in these Cocomels Bites – it’s the perfect ratio of chocolate to Cocomel," - JJ Rademaekers, Chief Candyman at Cocomels. We've been tinkering with our Naked Cocomels recipe for years. We've made them in squares, rectangles, and cylinders. We've added Sea Salt, Espresso and Vanilla. We've even covered the Espresso and Vanilla in Chocolate and offered them in a 2-piece pack. Today, we're proud to announce we've tried something new. We shaped Cocomels into bite sized orbs and rolled them in chocolate to create our favorite way to eat Cocomels yet! Cocomel...
