Pumpkin Spice Cocomels - The Origin Story

Pumpkin Spice Cocomels - The Origin Story

Fall is approaching and the smell of Pumpkin Spice is in the air!  This year Cocomels joined the party launching our NEW Pumpkin Spice Cocomels snack packs.  These limited edition seasonal Cocomels are, as always, natural, plant-based, organic and non-gmo certified, and made with real, actual spices (not flavors or extracts).  I custom created an organic spice blend (which I think you’ll love) and I didn’t skimp on the good stuff, using more nutmeg than most blends as well as including Allspice.  Each chew unlocks a different layer, including Cinnamon, Ginger, Clove and Vanilla. We consider this the best version...

Why Do Our Cocomel Bites Sometimes Have White Scuff Marks?

Why don’t Cocomel Bites look shiny and crisp like many other rounded chocolate-covered products?  Because we have chosen not to use a glaze or polish on our products.  As we say on the package, “We like to keep it straightforward, so no shiny glazes were added to these blissful beauties”.  Why no shiny glazes? Because we don’t want to use Confectioner’s Glaze, Confectioner’s Polish, or Shellac at this time.  These are all different names for a glaze made from Shellac, a resin produced by an Asian beetle.  Being a plant-based product we didn’t want to use an insect derived ingredient. OK, so...
