Chocolate has always been a part of Victoria Boyko’s life. In fact, growing up in a small town in northeastern Pennsylvania, her first word may have been chocolate! She still vividly recalls childhood trips to the Hershey factory. Several times a year, her family participated in a traditional Pennsylvania fund raiser that sold chocolates produced by a local candy manufacturer. Her family garage was transformed into a chocolate wonderland as it served as the drop-off location for rows upon rows of these heavenly confections.
