Boulder, CO (March 1st, 2018) – JJ’s Sweets, makers of mindfully crafted sweets and The Original Coconut Milk Caramels, announces three new products ahead of Natural Products Expo West. New products include Chocolate Covered Sea Salt Cocomel Singles, Cinnamon Spice Cocomel Bites and Gingerbread Spice Naked Cocomels.
“Since inception, JJ’s Sweets has been focused on our everyday business,” says Chief Candymaker JJ Rademaekers. “Now, we have Cocomel fans across the country asking for new products. It is time for us to offer unique, limited edition flavors to our customers as new experiences, and to align with the seasons. I love getting back into the creative candyman role and inventing new candies.”
The Seasonal flavors signify growth in the vegan caramel sector and join a line-up of Naked Cocomels, and Chocolate Covered Cocomels.
New Products Include:
Chocolate Covered Sea Salt Cocomel Singles are artisan-made, smooth and creamy coconut milk caramels enrobed in a silky layer of vegan dark chocolate finished with a sprinkle of flake sea salt. The singles are available in a 35 piece per POP Tub meant to introduce customers to Cocomels at the register.
Cinnamon Spice Cocomel Bites: Smooth and creamy coconut milk caramel with real ground cinnamon and a touch of vanilla, these are rolled Cocomels balls covered in our Organic 60% dark chocolate
“Cocomels are delicious and complex in their own right, once you add chocolate and it is a perfect experience. How do you improve on perfection?” asks JJ Rademaekers. “Carefully. With Cinnamon Spice we wanted add a flavor to the line-up that was seasonally appropriate for Fall and Winter. We worked to find the right balance to preserve the existing deliciousness of Cocomels. We put cinnamon and vanilla in the center, and dusted a bit on the outside to help create multiple phases of flavor as you chew through the chocolate into the Cocomel. When you eat them, you'll notice evolving flavors, with the greatest depth coming after a few seconds.”
Gingerbread Spice ‘Naked’ Cocomel: A twist-tied Cocomel infused with real ground ginger and a touch of cinnamon and molasses. This treat harkens back to the days around mom’s oven-baked gingerbread cookies. A little ginger kick gives this Cocomel a gentle flavor boost.
Our ‘Naked’ Cocomels are like a beautiful canvas for new flavor combinations... and boy does ginger taste amazing in Cocomel form!” says JJ. “A little molasses and vanilla really broadens the taste and references our gingerbread inspiration here. The ginger brings a little kick and the creamy Cocomel allows the flavor to linger and broaden with time. This is a new favorite at the office.”
