Do you have a favorite "candy you ate as a kid"
story? Share it here.
From the earliest days that I can remember, I loved Butterfinger. But, some of the reasoning for this may not have to do with eating the candy bars. According to family lore, my grandfather was a commercial artist in the Chicago area in the teens and early twenties. While also taking classes at the Chicago Art Institute, he would take on small contracted jobs to keep food on the table.
One of these small "jobs" was for Curtis Candy to design the artwork for a couple of candy bars. I am sure that the amount of money he made was not enough to retire to an artist's colony, but for me it sure keeps his memory alive every time I purchase a Butterfinger or Baby Ruth.
If anyone has anything resembling Curtis Candy historical archives, it would sure be interesting if my grandfather's name could be found somewhere therein. ~ Mike from Michigan
