Baby Ruth Candy Bar
The Baby Ruth candy bar was not, as is commonly believed, named after Babe Ruth, the famous baseball player. Originally called Kandy Kake, it was renamed in the 1920s to honor ex-President Grover Cleveland's daughter, Ruth, the first child born in the White House. She was fondly known to the American public as 'Baby Ruth'.
