Baby Ruth was introduced shortly after oh Henry! Bars, in the early 1920s, by Curtiss Candy Company. And the origin of its name: “The name honors President and Mrs. Grover Cleveland’s daughter, endearingly referred to as ‘Baby Ruth.’ The trademark was patterned exactly after the engraved lettering of the name used on a medallion struck for the Chicago World’s Columbian Exposition in 1893 and picturing the President, his wife, and daughter Baby Ruth.”
