A stand-alone store in the Newbo Neighborhood of Cedar Rapids is getting some national attention!
"Sweetopia" makes chocolate treats (and more) and they've been hired to provide hundreds of them to be included in the swag bags for the MTV Movie and TV Awards next month in Los Angeles.
Owner Kate Behm tells WHO Radio News they're including their best seller; "the Devil's Kiss."
Kate says it's a chocolate that contains hand-made caramel and peanut butter cup filling with a pretzel inside and sealed with dark chocolate. YUM!
She adds their Facebook page was spotted by a public relations company and that's how they got hired. (A rather 'tasteless' way to get the job, I think.)
They're making hundreds of pieces for the event all with a staff of two, so she says they're putting in a lot of overtime in their shop at 1100 3rd St SE, Cedar Rapids.
Here's their website for more tempting treats!
