OCHO Candy is launching a lineup of four plant-based caramels featuring Miyoko’s Creamery European-Style Cultured Vegan Butter. The Oakland-based company makes certified Organic and Fair Trade chocolate candy. Their latest innovation is the plant-based caramel line, which includes Classic, Cinnamon, Coffee, and Chocolate flavored caramel in a 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.”
The partnership between OCHO Candy and Miyoko’s Creamery has created a unique blend of flavors and textures. While most chocolate covered caramels are enrobed, OCHO Candy’s line is molded, lending the dark chocolate shell a unique shine and snap. While most vegan caramels have a coconut flavor, OCHO Candy’s use of Miyoko’s Creamery European-Style Cultured Vegan Butter leads to a rich buttery flavor. OCHO Candy’s unique formula and process leads to a gooey caramel texture that pulls apart like a traditional caramel. The plant-based caramel line is a breakthrough innovation perfect for vegan and dairy-free consumers.
