Baby Ruth, 1921
- Although the name of thecandy bar sounds like the name of the famous baseball player Babe Ruth, the Curtiss Candy Company traditionally
claimed that it was named after President Grover Cleveland’s daughter,
Ruth Cleveland. The candy maker, located on the same street as WrigleyField, named the bar "Baby Ruth" in 1921, as Babe Ruth's fame was on therise, over 30 years after Cleveland had left the White House, and 17 yearsafter his daughter, Ruth, had died. The company did not negotiate anendorsement deal with Ruth, and many saw the company's story about theorigin of the name to be a devious way to avoid having to pay the baseball player any royalties.
