Question: Which candy bar claims to be named after the child of President Grover Cleveland?

Answer: Although the name of the candy bar sounds like the name of the legendary baseball player Babe Ruth, the Curtiss Candy Company claimed that it was actually named after President Grover Cleveland’s daughter, Ruth Cleveland. The candy maker, named the bar “Baby Ruth” in 1921, as Babe Ruth’s fame was on the rise, over 30 years after Cleveland had left the White House, and 17 years after his daughter, Ruth, had died. The company did not negotiate an endorsement deal with the famous baseball player, and many people saw the company’s story about the origin of the name to be a devious way to avoid having to pay Babe Ruth any royalties.
