with Leslie Goddard

 

 

Thursday, November 04

7:00pm - 8:00pm

In-house Program 

 

Let's celebrate "National Candy Day"! Learn the history of tasty treats and explore what made Chicago such an ideal location for candymakers.

For most of its history, Chicago produced about one-third of the nation's candy. You probably know some candies made or invented here: Brach's caramels, Snickers and Milky Way bars, Wrigley's gum, CrackerJack, Baby Ruth and Butterfinger, Tootsie Rolls, Frango Mints. Learn the history of these tasty treats and explore what made Chicago such an ideal location for candymakers. Find out why immigrants played a critical role in confectionery history, discover how Baby Ruth and Milk Duds got their names, and take a fun “candy quiz.” It’s delicious fun! Take home a goody bag!
