What is your favorite OCHO candy bar? Caramel & Peanut, duh.

When you are not busy working at OCHO, what do you enjoy doing in your free time? Hanging out in the backyard with my family, watching movies, and enjoying the Oakland foodie scene.

Movies and candy go hand-in-hand; what is your favorite movie of all time? Impossible to say, it changes by the minute. At this particular moment, the top of the list would include the Terminator, MIB, Lethal Weapon & Die Hard series, as well as Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon.

If you could make any one of our ingredients into a super hero, which one would you choose and what would be its name and super power? Coconut, because it can be dry (loose) or sticky (bonded), as well as a good mixing agent, providing myriad of escape and entrapment opportunities for any ordinary super hero. I’m coming up short on a good name. Tooc, perhaps?

What’s your chocolate preference, milk or dark? If eaten on its own, dark. If eaten with inclusions, milk.

When you tell people you work for a candy company, what is their response? Oh, yum! Did you bring any samples?
