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. Its latest innovation is the plant-based caramel line, which includes Classic, Cinnamon, Coffee, and Chocolate-flavored caramel in a dark chocolate shell. The plant-based caramel line is available for order now at ochocandy.com.

"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."

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 formula and process leads to a gooey caramel texture that pulls apart like a traditional caramel.
