The Baby Ruth candy bar was first produced in the early 20’s in Chicago, Illinois on Illinois Street.
The Curtiss Candy Company claims to have gotten the name from Ruth the daughter of President Grover Cleveland Alexander. However the president had been out of office for 30 years when the candy bar was made.
It has been rumored that they company used the Baby Ruth name to avoid paying royalties to Babe Ruth.
The Baby Ruth to me is the best candy bar ever made. It was and is the Cadillac of candy bars for me.
