Dive into the history of America’s favorite candies with historian Leslie Goddard. From early treats like licorice roots and maple sugar candy through modern Baby Ruths and Hershey bars, we’ll explore the companies and brands that have become American icons. Learn how candy evolved from a luxury good into a cheap, everyday snack and how candy making was transformed by revolutions in technology, marketing, advertising, and even war.
