Free! Chicago’s Sweet Candy History Live Zoom Presentation by Leslie Goddard

December 9, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Need a morning break? Mark your calendars on Wednesday, December 9, 10-11 a.m., for a free virtual event sponsored by Whitehall of Deerfield. If you love candy, history or a good story, make plans to join us for this live Zoom presentation. For most of Chicago’s history, our city produced one-third of the nation’s candy.  You probably know some of them – Brach’s caramels, Mars Snickers bar, Wrigley’s gum, Cracker Jack, Curtiss Baby Ruth bars, Tootsie Rolls, Frango Mints and Dove chocolates. Historian Leslie Goddard chronicles Chicago’s sweet past as the candy capitol of the world.

All ages are welcome.  Please register in advance.
