On the hunt for chocolate sweets that are delicious and vegan? Organic OCHO Candy was founded on the idea that people should have access to organic candies made with wholesome ingredients at an affordable price. These candies are non-GMO, organic, and have a selection of vegan options along with gluten-free options. No brainer, right?

Organic OCHO Candy was created by Denis Ring when he became aware of the lack of organic, quality chocolate candies being offered on a wide-scale. After several years of experimenting, Organic OCHO Candy has been able to create a variety of tasty treats in delectable flavors. Want to learn more? Read on to find out which OCHO products are deliciously vegan.

Purposefully Vegan

A unique characteristic of Organic OCHO Candy is that their vegan flavors are made purposefully vegan. This sets them apart from many other brands who feature “accidentally” vegan products, or products that were not created with the intention of being vegan but yet were created without animal products. Organic OCHO Candy’s vegan products are certified by the Vegan Action/Vegan Awareness Foundation.

Another certification Organic OCHO Candy has gained is being Fair Trade Certified. Organic OCHO Candy attributes their Fair-Trade Certification towards their dedication to social responsibility and environmental sustainability goals set by their standards. By providing high quality, organic, and fair-trade products it allows customers to satisfy their sugary temptations while supporting the growth of sustainable practices, such as using sustainable ingredients and promoting community development.

OCHO Cruelty-Free Chocolates

Organic OCHO Candy features these flavors as being vegan: 

  • Dark Chocolate Coconut Bars
  • Dark Chocolate Coconut Minis
  • Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

Speaking of their organic and vegan options, what might OCHO stand for? OCHO cheekily stands for (O)rganic (CHO)colate.  

Along with offering vegan products, Organic OCHO Candy promotes gluten-free chocolate as well. Organic OCHO Candy refrains from adding gluten products and potentially causing cross-contamination of gluten between their candy, allowing them to gain certification from Gluten-Free Food Program USA. Gluten-free Organic OCHO Candy products include their Caramel, Caramel and Peanut, Coconut, Dark Caramel, Dark Peanut Butter, PB & J, Peanut Butter, and Peppermint options.

With specialty products ranging from gluten-free to vegan, and all products being non-GMO, fair-trade, and organic, there is surely an Organic OCHO Candy option for nearly everyone.
