Chicago's Sweet Candy History

For most of its history, Chicago produced one-third of the nation's candy, including Snickers, Tootsie Rolls, and Frango Mints. Join us on Zoom to learn what made Chicago an ideal location for candy makers, how immigrants played a critical role, and the origins of names like Baby Ruth and Milk Duds.
