Caramel Sans Cow’s Milk?
Caramel is, in essence, caramelized sugar. But to get that chewy texture, most candy makers will mix in heavy cream, butter, and/or milk. Suddenly, vegans and anyone with a dairy intolerance is left in a lurch.
Well we say “no more!” to that. All of the caramels you’ll find here are 100% dairy-free.

These folks are the maestro’s of caramel and chews:
Most of the caramels on our website come courtesy of Cocomels. This dairy-free caramel maker uses coconut milk in place of heavy-cream and other animal products to create chewy treats that are even more delicious than the majority of milk-based caramels. Like many a great idea, the concept for Cocomels began at a local farmer’s market. Today, the brand can be found in stores all over the country.
