How Did the Baby Ruth Chocolate Bar, the Tootsie Roll, and Hershey’s Kisses Get Their Names?

Confectioner Leo Hirschfield created the Tootsie Roll.

He named his chewy chocolate treat after his daughter Clara, whose nickname was Tootsie.

The Baby Ruth chocolate bar was named in honor of President Grover Cleveland’s baby daughter, Ruth.

Hershey’s named their chocolate treats Kisses because in the factory the machine that dispenses them kisses the conveyor belt.
