Sweet Home Chicago – newly archived web exhibit

Cracker Jack AdSweet Home Chicago: Chocolate and Confectionery Production and Technology in the Windy City, an exhibit that ran in Crerar Library in 2011, is now available online as an archived web exhibit.

About the exhibit: Wrigley’s gum, Fannie May chocolate, and Cracker Jack are just some of the confections that have been created and manufactured in Chicago, a major center of candy production in the 20th century. Drawing from items in the substantial cookery collection at the John Crerar Library, this exhibit explores the history of chocolate and confectioners in the city and the science and technology of the candy making process.
