Best snack bar
- 45 Route 15, Jericho, VT, 05465
Joe’s Snack Bar opened in Jericho in 1950 and has been a summer staple ever since, even inspiring a children’s book called Where Does Joe Go? by Vermont author-illustrator Tracey Campbell Pearson. The eponymous Joe Rotunda died in 2010, but his legacy lives on each summer at the snack bar, where his wife, Marilyn kozlowski, still serves up homemade fast food, plenty of greasy goodness and, of course, creemees.
