Sweet Home Chicago Seminar: Classic Candy

For generations, the kings of candy have made their mark on Chicago's sweet scene. Representatives from classic candy companies Wrigley Co. and Primrose Candy Co. share the history of their companies, why they chose to set up shop in Chicago, and how their brands continue to grow. Artifacts from the Museum's collection, on display for one night only, highlight this delectable discussion. The discussion is moderated by Monica Eng of the Chicago Tribune.


Recorded Tuesday, February 23, 2010 at Chicago History Museum.
