Yummy, Yummy, Yummy Giveaway.

JJ's Sweets in Boulder, Colorado are sponsoring a giveaway in time for Christmas, and you really want to be in on this one! They are offering to send to the winning reader of this blog a 12-pack of chocolate-covered Cocomels – the perfect decadent vegan treat for the holidays.


They sent me a sample pack of the regular Cocomels, boo for no chocolate, but yay for 4 different flavors, to try, so I could say, hand on heart, that these are delicious, and they are!! I wouldn't give away something I wouldn't recommend.


My tasting notes -

Original - I had these first so they form the basis of the impressions that came after. These are rich and creamy, and not at all coconutty, which I was sort of expecting. Chewy and sticky and really more-ish in an "I shouldn't but I will" sort of way.

Vanilla - I found these very similar to the original, and couldn't discern a great difference. Maybe my palate isn't super refined. Still good.

Fleur de Sel - Loved!!!! these ones. The creamy sweetness combined with, highlighted by, and contrasted with little hits of salt. It elevates the creaminess and richness so much more!!

Java - You could taste the undertone of coffee in these, and to me, they tasted the most coconutty of them all, strange I know, but Yummy.


My favourite??? The Fleur de Sel! oh, pick me for more samples, please. All in all, the perfect gift for your Mother-in-law or anyone else you can't think of what to buy for, or for yourself. These are GOOD!


Now, to enter this giveaway you have to "Like” JJ’s Sweets on Facebook, handy link provided and all, and then comment here! Simple.


You could go to check out the JJ's website if you really wanted to, but its not a condition of entry or anything, just the "Like" and the comment.


You will then be entered to win a 12-pack of chocolate-covered Cocomels! Competition closes December 15th, is open to residents of North America only due to the perishable nature of the prize. The winner will be drawn at noon PT by Random Number Generator on the 15th, so hopefully you can get your treats by Christmas.

Moved to Denver less than a year ago and am still looking for close-by vegan options. I was so excited to learn about JJ's. Even if I don't win, I'll be on the lookout for their products!
