Vegans Rejoice Plant Based Carmel Candy O’ YES

If you are one of the millions of consumers searching for both vegan and or dairy free new food products, today is your day.  Do we have something sweet for you!  Steven Johnson Grocerant Guru® at Tacoma, WA based Foodservice Solutions®, stated, technology and years of trial an effort have combined to create both an organic and Fair-Trade caramel candy. 

Yes, a Fair-Trade, organic, candy product line.  If you love chocolate candy and care about responsible sourcing OCHO Candy's new product line is just right for you.  

In case you did not know, In January of 2020, OCHO Candy - an Organic and Fair-Trade chocolate candy company based in Oakland, CA - started work on their Plant-Based Caramel formula. 3 years and dozens of recipes later, OCHO Candy’s new line of plant-based caramels is finally hitting shelves.

This new line which contains Classic, Cinnamon, Coffee, and Double Chocolate flavors, fills a snappy dark chocolate shell with gooey caramel to create an indulgent bite-sized treat. While traditional caramel uses both butter and cream to get its richness and gooey texture, OCHO Candy uses Miyoko's Creamery's European-style cultured vegan butter.

Pat Rebro, OCHO Candy's head of R&D, stated, “We went through almond milk, oat milk, soy milk, coconut cream… you name it, we tried it. It all came together when we tried the Miyoko’s. Their vegan butter uses cultured cashew milk, which gets you this great tang that’s usually missing from a vegan caramel. Then there’s coconut oil, which gives you richness and helps with the caramel’s pull. It needed to be rich without being too sweet, and it needed to have pull without being watery. It’s an amazing product."

Scott Kucirek, CEO of OCHO Candy, stated, "I'm incredibly excited to announce this partnership between OCHO Candy and Miyoko's Creamery," ... "Vegan and dairy-free consumers deserve dessert options with great textures and bold flavors, and we believe our plant-based caramel line delivers on both fronts. We're also proud to provide a certified Organic and Fair-Trade option for caramel lovers."

After 3 years of trial and error, OCHO Candy has landed on a remarkable product perfect for vegan and dairy-free consumers. The combination of smooth caramel and rich dark chocolate creates an irresistible balance. Do you want to avoid the veto vote?  Add a line of Vegan Carmel Candy from OCHO Candy.
