Cocomels: Vegan Chocolate Covered Caramels from JJ's Sweets

Stop what you're doing and buy yourself some chocolate-covered cocomels from JJ's Sweets. I'll wait.


I've bought cocomels coconut milk caramels as gifts tons of times. Vegan caramels are one of those things that not only make a great gift in general, but also make a terrific statement- that being, "Vegans have caramels and they're better than non-vegan caramels for countless reasons!"

But, I admit that for me caramels are just okay. I mean, I want to love them, but where's the chocolate? I'm all about the chocolate! Well, JJ's Sweets apparently heard my internal plea, so they also offer chocolate-covered cocomels! As if that wasn't enough, the further beauty of it all is that if you shop online, they only sell them by the case; thereby, it's not your fault that 15 packs are the minimum. I'm just saying.

Sooooo, because I've been spending gads of money (mostly on me, mostly on edibles) since Black Friday/ Small Business Saturday/ Cyber Monday, I figured why not also have a box of 15 2-packs of chocolate-covered cocomels delivered to my door? Why not indeed. I placed my order with ease and the box was delivered in just a few days. It was wrapped precisely and garnered interest from you-know-who almost instantly.


Upon initial inspection, they seemed a little small. But each package had some heft to it and when I opened one I immediately saw why.


The contents are two glorious and significant, dense and chewy, sweet & salty (I ordered the sea salt variety), chocolate-covered caramel bars. Don't let the fact that they come in a wrapper fool you; they are absolutely exquisite chocolates. If someone gave me a giant box of all chocolate-covered cocomels for Valentine's any day, I'd think they were from the finest chocolatier and would be forever grateful.


I honestly can't say enough about how magnificent these are, so if you haven't already (why didn't you listen to me?) I do highly recommend that you order your own pronto. Particularly because I'M NOT SHARING no matter how hard you stare.


Not even with you*.


*dogs can't eat chocolate! Probably not caramel either!

  1. Aside from the fact that 89 is the living embodiment of a Chocolate Covered Caramel...I will look for these at my local Cocomels purveyor. If not found, I will escalate search to internet.

  2. Where do you store them? Cupboard or refrigerator? (They look delicious)

    1. So, funny you should ask. I ate a pack right away when it arrived- so it was really cold. Then I had one at room temp & it was totally different. I don't think you can go wrong.

  3. Your pictures always make me so happy! 89 is the best Vanna White/Bob Barker girl for your reviews and adventures. ;)

    Thanks to your convincing, I will be on the look out for these Cocomels soon!

    1. Thanks, Ingrid! I don't know why I waited so long to try them, but they're now in the regular rotation.

  5. The only reason I haven't ordered these already is that the shipping to the UK is silly. Rest assured I will be getting my hands on some as soon as I touch down in Austin next May!
