Buttermilk is bringing a taste of Cornwall, England (think Poldark, Doc Martin!) to Costco – vegan and dairy-free salted caramel cups.
A much-loved Cornish firm will be bringing a taste of one of the UK’s most popular vacation hotspots to the States.
Buttermilk’s Salted Caramel Cups (16oz/454g) will be priced at $10 and available from 29 selected Costco stores from 26th October. These are made in Cornwall, a county famed for its beautiful coastline and also for providing the backdrops for TV series Poldark and Doc Martin.
Buttermilk’s new ‘free from’ range was launched in the UK in early 2020 and has since received much praise for its rich chocolatey taste, with many customers not realising that the products were vegan and dairy-free.
The new Salted Caramel Cups are also GMO free, gluten-free, Palm Oil free, and 100% natural with no artificial colours or preservatives – the packaging is plastic free too.
Buttermilk is a family-run confectioner, founded in 1964 and well known for its traditional Cornish fudge. However, they wanted to ensure that their delicious treats could be enjoyed by everyone, including those with dietary requirements and so in 2019, they started to develop a new range of products that were inclusive.
Since then, customers have given feedback that the taste is exceptional and that they would buy these products even if they don’t have dietary requirements. At a taste test, when it was revealed that the product was ‘free from’, one of the panel said: “No way! I’m shocked, the chocolate tasted divine and so smooth. You could not tell.” Another commented: “I thought the chocolate was really lovely and I’d be surprised if it was free-from.”
Tracy McGoad, who runs Buttermilk with husband David, said: “Over the years, we’ve met lots of lovely people holidaying in Cornwall from the US, who have given us positive feedback about our heritage fudge range. We hope that we’ll once again be able to welcome visitors to this part of the world, but in the meantime, we’re bringing some Buttermilk joy to you in the shape of our new Buttermilk Salted Caramel Cups.”
