During the holidays we at Wrapped Up N U are always looking for different gourmet treats. We are pleased as punch to share JJ's Sweets this year. We were sent 4 of their top treats to share and enjoy, and enjoy we did! These would be great given as a gift alone, a stocking stuffer or added to a gift basket.
First I would like to share with you a little about the shipping processes and care. The fine folks at JJ's Sweets lovingly packed our treats complete with an ice pack. They know that it's fall but we are in south Georgia and are still very warm here. We were so pleased to see this, it shows they want to make sure we got the best possible experience and that your items are in great shape.
So, about products we were shipped. as I said about we were sent 4 products from the seasonal/specialty line:
Chocolate Covered Cocomel Five Salt-$7.99, sampler of 5-I have to admit this was our favorite because we are fans of chocolate. They are smooth and creamy bites of goodness and the salt really sets the flavors off and makes it pop. How is is dairy free we will never understand!
Mexican Hot Chocolate Cocomels-$9.99, 9.2 oz, approx 26 pieces-They warm goodness of hot chocolate with a Mexican of organic cinnamon. Yes, please...they are yummy and just something different.
Coconut Palm Sugar Cocomels-$9.99, 9.2 oz, approx 26 pieces-These remind me of old fashioned caramels not the overly processed bags we see in all store today. It has a buttery richness to it but it is dairy free-magic we say.
Harvest Spice Cocomel-$9.99, 9.2 oz, approx 26 pieces-take a break with this sweet treat that truly embodies the the flavors of the fall season. They are all things warm, smooth and creamy.
I should warn you there is a lot missing from these items. Things like the fact that they are made 100% natural ingredients, organic sweeteners and deliver a unique and delicious, mouth-watering experience that is healthier than average candy. Vegan, Gluten Free, Corn Syrup Free, Soy Free and Non-GMO.
So this year, think outside the box and usual mass marketed boxes candy at the local store. Check out JJ's Sweets for a wide range of gourmet treats for your gift giving pleasure.

Welcome to JJ’s Sweets. We are a candy company dedicated to offering blissful, innovative and mindfully crafted treats. We draw from the past but are influenced by our desire to see candy evolve into tasty indulgences that inspire the spirit, support our bodies, and are sustainable for the environment.
The idea for this company came to the founder JJ in a dream he had one night in 2009. In the dream, JJ witnessed a kooky Willy Wonka-ish candy man creating innovative new candies that were not only delicious but also healthier for our bodies and contained some functional benefits. They were also unique in their flavors, drawing on old recipes but infused with a modern sense of global adventurousness.
Inspired by the dream, JJ began experimenting with making delicious, natural sweets made from sustainably sourced, organic, healthier ingredients. Having been a scientist, musician and long time foodie, he soon found that the art of candy making was a perfect combination of his passions: science + art + food = candy making! JJ’s Sweets was born.
What started as a candy stand at Boulder’s local farmer’s market has since grown into a thriving natural candy brand, with Cocomels occupying shelf space in more than 1,200 retailers around the country. In 2014, JJ’s Sweets further expanded our reach in the natural candy market with a line of Chocolate Covered Cocomels.
Despite our growth, the cornerstone of JJ’s Sweets remains rooted in JJ’s original dream to develop delicious, innovative treats without sacrificing the health of his customers or the planet. This drives everything from the ingredients we source to the material we use to package our products.
Every JJ’s Sweets concoction is a mix of divine inspiration, creativity, love, attention to detail and hard work. We feel lucky to find ourselves in the admirable position of offering to the world little bits of edible joy. We take pride in our products and stand behind what we do. Please contact us with any feedback you might have. We love to hear from you.
Please enjoy, and remember, “Life is Sweet!”
