In addition to containing Organic, Fair Trade, and vegan ingredients, the chocolate morsels are made with European-style cultured vegan butter, making them even better than their traditional caramel counterparts. Find this new line in four tasty flavors on the OCHO Candy website today!
OCHO Caramels Are Made with Miyoko’s Creamery’s European-Style Cultured Vegan Butter
How did the OCHO caramels get so rich, buttery, and unbelievably vegan? The Organic chocolate brand proves it’s all about who you know. These rich and buttery vegan caramels are a product of the collaboration between OCHO Candy and innovative vegan company Miyoko’s Creamery. Each caramel is made using Miyoko’s Creamery’s European-Style Cultured Vegan Butter, resulting in a rich and buttery flavor. While most vegan caramels use coconut milk, which creates a floral and nutty flavor, you won’t find that with these candies. The partnership has led to an authentic chocolate caramel flavor and a unique, gooey caramel texture that pulls apart like traditional caramels—this is vegan innovation at its tastiest! The OCHO Plant-Based Caramel collection consists of four delicious flavors: Classic, Cinnamon, Coffee, and Chocolate. Each treat is filled with buttery caramel and covered in a certified Organic, Fair Trade dark chocolate shell.
“I’m incredibly excited to announce this partnership between OCHO Candy and Miyoko’s Creamery,” said Scott Kucirek, CEO of OCHO Candy. “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.”
OCHO’s Organic, Fair Trade, and Vegan Chocolates
The brand behind these delicious vegan caramels, OCHO Candy, was founded in Oakland, California where it made candy for over a decade. As the company grew, OCHO moved production to the island of Trinidad located in the Caribbean. In addition to nourishing the surrounding community, the shift allowed this iconic brand to move closer to the source of its ingredients and worldwide trade. The Fair Trade and Organic chocolate brand supports sustainability, worker empowerment, community development, and environmental stewardship. OCHO’s ingredients are free from synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, GMOs, artificial flavors, colors, and preservatives. In addition to the Plant-Based Caramels, the brand offers several other certified-vegan candy options. OCHO vegan offerings include Organic Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Minis and Bars, along with Organic Dark Chocolate Coconut Minis and Bars that taste even better than Mounds.
