Chocolate-Covered Toffee Bites

Cocomels' Newest Poppable Treat is Free from Dairy, Gluten & GMOs

— October 6, 2021 — Lifestyle
Cocomels is going beyond dairy-free caramel with its newest sweet creation, Dark Chocolate-Covered Toffee Bites, which are also free from gluten and GMO ingredients. The poppable snacks are crunchy and bite-sized, and they also speak to consumers who are looking to indulge without consuming ingredients like corn syrup and artificial ingredients.

The crunchy coconut milk toffee bits are covered with 60% dark chocolate and every bite has just a single gram of sugar. While the brand has built a community that loves its snackable and chewy caramel treats, this new product treats the sense to a crunchy new format with the same free-from ingredients as ever that satisfies a need for lower sugar options within the candy category.
Trend Themes
1. Free, Dairy-free & Gmo-free Snacks - The creation of dark chocolate-covered toffee bites that are free from dairy, gluten, and GMOs represents a trend towards the production of healthier snacks which cater to consumers desiring these attributes.
2. Poppable Snacks - The release of the crunchy Dark Chocolate-Covered Toffee Bites from Cocomels represents a trend towards more poppable, bite-sized snacks that can fit better into consumers' busy lifestyles.
3. Lower Sugar Snacks - With just one gram of sugar per serving, the Dark Chocolate-Covered Toffee Bites cater to consumers looking for indulgent snack options with lower sugar content, highlighting the trend towards lower sugar snacks in the candy category.
Industry Implications
1. Healthy Snacks - The trend towards free-from, healthier snacks such as the Dark Chocolate-Covered Toffee Bites from Cocomels offers opportunities for disruption in the healthy snack industry, particularly in the production of plant-based snack options that cater to consumers with specific dietary requirements.
2. Confectionery - The creation of lower sugar confectionery options represents an opportunity for disruption within the confectionery industry, with a growing demand for more health-conscious candy options that are both indulgent and low in sugar.
3. Functional Foods - Functional foods and snack products which incorporate healthful ingredients while still being indulgent, like Cocomels' Dark Chocolate-Covered Toffee Bites, can carve out a new niche in the functional foods category, bridging the gap between health-consciousness and indulgence.
