Being gluten intolerant has created some challenges for me. From being cautious with foods I'm selecting to researching the menu of a restaurant I visit to refraining from letting my sweet tooth guide what I eat before I have the chance to inspect ingredient lists. And when I had the chance to try out "Cocomels" I couldn't wait to see what they were like.
Cocomels were started by founder "JJ" who wanted a company that was like Willy Wonka with a twist - candies healthier for our bodies. And then the experimentation began! He tried out different treats and recipes to create this tasty before you treat. Read more about Cocomels beginnings over on their About page.
I received a few different varieties to try! I tried the Espresso, the Sea Salt, the Original and the Vanilla. You know at first I was a little wary, because I thought at first it was hard candy when I took a look at what the Cocomels were like. But they soften as you start to enjoy them and they taste so uniquely sweet. They have a gentle coconut flavor complimented by their corresponding flavors. My favorite of all was Sea Salt. I absolutely enjoyed that!
I actually think these are a PERFECT treat for someone that maybe isn't able to enjoy the usual candies and chocolates out there. I had a coworker who couldn't have dairy or soy and I offered her some and she was so happy! I think this is a great way to surprise someone who maybe can't always enjoy the usual treats that other people do.
And you know for a variety pack of 4, it's $21.99 right now! I think that's an amazing deal and worth buying that's for sure. They also offer chocolate covered cocomels and I would love to try those, I'll bet they would be amazing. Check them out.
