Our mission at Cocomels is to deliver unexpectedly delicious moments of joy, and to enable people to share those moments with others.
It (literally) all started with a dream…from there, our Chief Candyman JJ knew his calling was to deliver joy though candy.
JJ spent months perfecting his now famous coconut milk caramels recipe in his kitchen, using family and friends to be his trusted taste testers.
JJ introduced Cocomels to the world at his local Farmers Market in Boulder. The first step is always the most important!
