About the Company:
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 enjoy, and remember, “Life is Sweet!”
