Wall of Chocolate: Jo's candies

This company was started by Gandma Jo in 1946. My favorite is the Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Grahams, but the S'mores, available in both Milk and Dark chocolate, are lovey too. I like that they are individually packaged, so that I am not tempted to eat more than one at a time!
