Max has always been asked how he actually started out making chocolate. The story began when he was 10 years old, one day he read “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”, and he loved that story so his dream was that one day he will find a river of chocolate and sail in it.
Anna who was his first love also was involved in the story because she could not fall asleepwithout eating a piece of milk chocolate before going to bed, because otherwise she would have bad dreams.
