Baby Ruth History

Ruth Cleveland was a favorite with the country when she was an infant. She was born in 1891 and the now famous candy bar was introduced in 1920 by the Curtiss Candy Company of Chicago.

Detractors claim that the company conveniently used the name to capitalize on the popularity of the other "Babe" who was at his baseball prime at the time.

Baby Ruth Memories

Baby Ruth BoxSaving enough soda bottles @ two cents a bottle was not easy when every kid in the neighborhood was looking for those bottles. Not many people drank soda, so it was difficult to get 3 bottles to make up enough for a 5 cent candy bar. Baby Ruth was my favorite, so to look for dropped pennies or a soda bottle was like treasure hunting with a wonderful treasure to receive. In such small hands a candy bar seemed really large. What a treat is was and I still love them today. ~Evelyn from Connecticut
