Sweet Mona’s is getting more business thanks to a December partnership forged with Seattle Chocolates’ JCOCO brand.

According to a news release, Seattle Chocolates CEO and owner Jean Thompson visited the Langley shop and was taken by the taste of Mona Newbauer’s salted caramels.

“With a hug and a smile, a sweet partnership evolved bringing Sweet Mona’s salted caramels to the masses …” the release stated.
