Product Review: Cocomels coconut milk caramels

Cocomels are a dairy free caramel candy from JJ’s Sweets.  I’ve eating them for a while, but they sent me a new flavor to try, so I thought I would write a Cocomels review.

They are creamy caramels made with coconut milk, instead of dairy.

Flavors

They come is the following flavors

  • coconut sugar (their newest)
  • original
  • sea salt
  • vanilla
  • espresso

Seasonal flavors

  • gingerbread spice

Pros:

  • sustainably source ingredientsIMG_9084
  • grain free
  • dairy free
  • vegan
  • plant based
  • gluten free
  • soy free
  • corn syrup free
  • non-gmo
  • organic
  • no cane sugar
  • can be used in recipes that use caramel.

Cons:

  • They are made on equipment that processes dairy, soy protein, peanuts and tree nuts. However, JJ’s Sweet says they purge the equipment before processing their product.
  • High in sugar. If you are watching your sugar intake, It doesn’t matter the source of the sugar.
  • A serving  of the Coconut Sugar is 6 pieces, which contains 130 calories and 13 grams of sugar. 20 carbs That is a lot of sugar, but who says you have to have 6 pieces? I have one, which is 21 calories and 2 grams of sugar. Coconut Sugar has a stronger flavor and is firmer.
  • A serving of the Sea Salt is also 6 pieces with 120 calories, 21 carbs, and 16 grams of sugar. If I only have one it is roughly 20 calories, 2 1/2 grams of sugar. Sea salt has a more mild flavor and is softer.

I’ve also had the vanilla, but I haven’t tried the other flavors yet.
