Hoffman’s Chocolate, with stores in Boca Raton and Palm Beach Gardens, had its Hollywood moment Sunday night at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards. A-list presenters (e.g., Cameron Diaz, Zac Efron and Andrew Garfield) who received gift bags were able to try out the Florida company’s famed chocolate-covered Oreos stamped with the cable network’s logo. Fred Meltzer, president of Hoffman’s Chocolate, said he was “excited” to be included and likely will give his publicist a raise for such great exposure.
Flo Rida has fans of all ages. Really.
