CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) -- One Cedar Rapids business is heading to Hollywood.

Chocolate from Sweetopia will be included in the swag bags for the MTV Movie and TV Awards next month in Los Angeles.

Its owner says it needs to make around 16-hundred truffles, as well as more than 100 pounds of caramel.

Sweetopia will hand make all the goodies.

"When I got the email, I didn't even believe it. I just figured it was a joke, like a hoax thing... I sent it off to my husband and he researched it and he said this is for real, hun," said Kate Behm, who is the owner.

Behm said most of the treats will be made the week before the event.
