BOULDER, COLO. — Cocomels, a maker of coconut milk caramels and other confections, is ringing in 2022 with the launch of low-sugar chocolate-covered sea salt squares.

Balancing the taste of dark chocolate with coconut cream, caramel and a sprinkle of sea salt, new <1g sugar chocolate-covered sea salt squares are free from dairy, gluten, corn syrup and cholesterol, according to Cocomels, a brand of Boulder-based Madhava, Ltd. The shareable squares are sweetened with allulose and contain 80 calories per two-pack serving.

“When creating our new <1g sugar chocolate-covered sea salt squares, the most important factor to us was to develop an option for sugar-reducing consumers that did not compromise on taste and was as close to our fan-favorite classics as possible,” said JJ Rademaekers, founder of Cocomels. “That’s why we decided to develop our own high-quality allulose-based chocolate — because we felt it tasted the closest to sugar-full chocolate without sugar alcohols or palm oil.”

Cocomels’ <1g sugar chocolate-covered sea salt squares are available online via Amazon and the Cocomels website and at all Sprouts Farmers Market stores for a suggested retail price of $2.49.
