Mom Beats Cancer and Creates Healthy Chocolate

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (Good4Utah) - The Made4Utah company JoJo's Chocolate has created a chocolate, that is healthy.  
 
Sterling Jone's Mom Jodie, or Jo Jo as they call her, was diagnosed with Type 3A breast cancer in 2012.  As she fought the cancer, she cleaned up her diet hoping a stronger body would have a better chance to win the cancer battle.  While she was eating better, she still had a sweet tooth.  So she got to work making something to satisfy the need.
 
Jones said that his Mom's hunt for sweet is "how it began.  She wanted something for herself, something that tasted great but didn't leave her feeling guilty."
 
The work in the kitchen turned into a tasty and healthier treat:  JoJo's Chocolate Bark.
 
Jones explained the chocolate is made up of "raw almonds, raw pistachios and dry cranberries.  Each ingredient has a special reason to be there."
 
In addition to those treats, they add protein to each chocolate.
 
Jones said, "We add an all natural protein to the dark chocolate.  You have a chocolate bar with added protein."
 
The Jones family thought their treat was not just healthy, but good!  They tested out the chocolate with people around them and the reaction helped them realize that they had a product that could be something more.  Their kitchen concoction became a business for their family.
 
Jones said, "After a short period of time, we outgrew the home kitchen and are now in a large factory."
 
Things just continue to grow!  Just last month, JoJo's made an appearance on QVC.
 
Jones said, "We were on there for about 7 minutes and people loved it.  It was a great experience and great exposure." 
 
Now this Made4Utah company continues to grow and impress everyone who tries it.  A healthy way for anyone to eat a treat, without the food guilt.  On top of all of that, the Jones family still has their Mom who beat cancer.
 
Jones added, "We go through hard times and you can turn something good out of that hard time, just like my Mom did."
